Now in its 25th year, the Mariemont Dinner and Auction is our annual fundraising event. Mariemont has a long history of coming together as a community to support our incredible neighborhood school.

The funds raised on this evening help the PTA support events and programs throughout the school year. In past years, the PTA has used the dinner/auction money to purchase updated technology, improve landscaping, buy quality playground equipment with shade structures, and complete an entire makeover of our library. Also, it’s our big (kids-free!) social event of the year!

This year’s theme is Sapphire and Silver! Silver to commemorate the auction being in its 25th year, and Sapphire to honor the 65th year of Mariemont Elementary School’s existence.
