Corinth Elementary Benefit Auction,
presented by Country Club Bank

Our sincere appreciation to everyone who attended and supported the 2017 Corinth Benefit Auction! We are humbled by your support of the school and results show it!

  • 445 tickets sold, that’s almost 100 more than the 2015 event.
  • Nearly 900 items were sold.
  • Total proceeds: $107,000 and counting! We are finalizing all figures, and selling remaining items; but the math aide, Spanish program and Maker Space will benefit greatly from your tremendous support!

Trisha Sims and Jenn Miller appreciate all the kindness extended, and also want to acknowledge Betsy Ballard and Lindsay Peattie for their amazing efforts. They will chair the event in 2019 and shadowed Trisha and Jenn, working side-by-side and doing a great deal of work. Thank you both for all you did to make this year’s event a success and we’re positive 2019 will be even better!


Items remain available from Saturday's auction. Act now to get a great deal! The new starting bid is 50% off, and will be available until 8 p.m.Thursday, March 9th.

Some parties also have spots available and you may purchase tickets at the original price.
