About our Auction
The EAL Annual Online Auction is our largest community fundraiser, and generates more than $12,000 each year to support program services. The Auction is open to the public through the online platform Bidding for Good for ten days in late February – early March each year. Donations are accepted all year to support the event.
We welcome community donations to support our Annual Online Auction throughout the year.

- Unique experiences such as excursions, adventures, wine tastings and museum tours
- Golf outings, especially at exclusive local clubs
- Hotel stays and spa treatments
- Tickets to sporting events, concerts and local theater productions
- Gift certificates for local restaurants, shops and services

Congratulations to EAL tutoring learner alumnus Behrouz on achieving his goal of U.S. Citizenship. His volunteer tutor Melissa continued to work with him after leaving the program, and tells us
"I started with Behrouz as a tutor in July 2016. His goals that we worked toward with his English abilities were to get a full-time job, buy a house, and become a US citizen. He has achieved all three of his goals and has come a long way with his skills and confidence."
"I am so proud of him and so privileged to be part of his journey and the mission of English at Large. To see someone work so hard and achieve something that means so much to him is priceless."
Thank you Melissa for your volunteer service, and for sharing this inspiring story! ... See MoreSee Less
