We will spend an amazing day creating one of a kind projects to be auctioned off on Wednesday evening at the Senior Project Build Auction.

May 22, 2019 (Wednesday) - Birdhouse/Senior Project Build Auction - Chico High School Lincoln Center
This largest fundraiser for Sober Grad Night. The Seniors design and build their own creations and they are not limited to birdhouses. There have been dog houses, tables, chairs, patio furniture, and bars. We look forward to seeing projects made of wood, ceramics, glass, metal, baked goods, jewelry, and wall art. Their creativity is awesome! The auction for these masterpieces will be on Wednesday, May 22 with Silent Auction starting at 5:30 PM and Live Auction at 7:00 pm in the Lincoln Center/Gym. Worried about not getting a good seat at graduation? Problem solved. We will also have a set of 6 front row seats at the graduation up for auction. These are worth gold on that night! Plan to enjoy dinner at the auction as there will be many food vendors. Then view, bid on and buy your favorite project. Bring your checkbook, cash or credit card and a competitive spirit! Please invite neighbors, business associates, close relatives and other folks who have a checkbook and a competitive spirit who want a unique, one of a kind, awesome work of art! This is a wonderful community event where families of all students, not just seniors, as well as the entire Chico Community come to celebrate, bid on and buy our talented senior students projects. Let's help our Seniors reach their goal!
Through May 27, 2019 (Monday) - Graduation Leis
Floral leis are a graduation tradition which many Panthers partake in. The majority of parents purchase Lei's at Costco for $12.99. As a service to our senior parents, and to help support Sober Grad Night, we are offering Lei's for purchase which will be HAND DELIVERED to your student after graduation practice on the morning of graduation. This will save you from having to drive to Costco on graduation morning! We are pricing leis at $20.00 (including tax). Graduation day will be hectic for us all and you will definitely want to take advantage of this service!
Senior Memory Boards - Drop-offs starting May 20
For many years, CHS parents or someone close to the graduate, has made their Panther a memory board as a small tribute to their child. The memory board is displayed during the Sober Grad Night event at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds.
This is a very fun project and is one of the first things students go and look at. It truly is a walk down memory lane for them. A memory board is created on a poster board (20”x 30”) - a full or half sheet will do. No bigger please. You can also have a large picture collage made at Costco or similar photo lab. Both are great keepsakes. You can include photos, poems, decorative items, sayings, stickers or anything you would like to say to your graduate. It can be as simple or elaborate as you like!!! You can talk with your graduate ahead of time and find out what they would like on the board, or make it a surprise the night of the event. All students need to take their board home at the end of the event. However, there are no guarantees that this always happens. With this in mind, please do not use original photos or special mementos. To see an example, click here. Drop offs can be made starting May 20 to the Registrar's Office (A114) between 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM. For questions, feel free to email: email@example.com.
