Fundraising for Foster


Online Auction:

To comply with the new guidelines from the Minneapolis School District, we are cancelling the in person Fundraising for Foster event scheduled for this Sunday, March 15th.  We are disappointed to cancel and hope to reschedule for a later date in May.  Please see the notes below for details on tickets and the online auction.

Tickets for the event at Tinto Kitchen on Sunday, March 15th:

Given that Fundraising for Foster is our biggest direct to school fundraiser, we are asking families to consider donating their ticket purchases to the school.  If the event is rescheduled for another date, your current ticket will grant you admission to the rescheduled event. If you would like to donate your ticket payment (and hold your place for a potential future event), no further action is needed from you.

If you would like a refund on your ticket purchase, please reach out to the Fundraising for Foster team via email ( no later than Thursday, March 19th.  If you paid via Eventbrite, we will refund your ticket purchase through the website.  If you paid via check, we will send your check back to you via your child’s orange folder.  

Online Auction:

The online auction is still open and now more important than ever!  Given all the recent developments, we have decided to extend the auction bidding to Friday, March 20th at 8pm.  Please note that some of the auction items have changed due to recent cancellations (Timberwolves ticket).  We are also adding items that were planned raffle items for the event this Sunday. These items include: Red Cow Gift Cards, Sleep Number Weighted Blanket, R. F. Moeller Gift card, K + Co Salon Gift Card, Signed MN Professional Sports memorabilia, and much, much more!!!  Please check out the website and bid on these items to support Armatage!

We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.  We are disappointed to cancel our event but hope that we can rise up and support our wonderful school via the online auction.  See you on the auction site!!
