Great Goose Egg Auction 2014

Here's the buzz: – we raised over $10,000 in support of Open Fields!

Nature’s Gold, by Mark Hufford

On October 26, 2014, we auctioned off 42 eggs, donated by artists, authors, illustrators, and others.

We raised over $10,000 for the support of Open Fields School. $8,750 came from bidders at the auction; the rest from absentee and phone bids.

Egg Auction 2014 Poster A price list is available, if you’re interested in seeing what your favorite egg brought at auction.

Thanks to all our wonderful artists, enthusiastic bidders, generous sponsors, and to our inimitable auctioneer, Dean Whitlock.

We’ll be doing this all again in 2016! If you’d like to be added to the Open Fields mailing list, and receive notices of this event, our biennial Medieval Faire, and other goings-on at the school, email info@openfields.org or fill out our request for information form.
