Boston – Boston University Academy announces that it will hold its ninth annual benefit auction at 7:00 PM on “Super Saturday,” April 26, in the BU Metcalf Trustee Center (One Sherborn Street, 9th Floor). This year’s auction, themed Vote For BUA! will feature both live and silent auctions accompanied by a champagne reception, cocktails and hors d‘oeuvres, as well as several raffles.

With recent announcements and a narrowed field, BU Academy is emerging as the clear choice and front runner for the best secondary school. The auction serves as a call to all supporters to join the party and campaign for BUA scholars.

Tickets for the evening are $50.00 per person, $35.00 for BUA alumni and can be purchased by contacting Paige Brewster at 617-353-9000. All proceeds generated by the auction will directly benefit financial aid assistance for qualified students enrolling at BU Academy.

Additionally, BU Academy’s First Annual Online Auction is currently underway at www.buacademy.cmarket.com. Online bids will be accepted until 12:00 PM on Friday, April 25. Community members including current and former parents, faculty, staff, alumni, students and friends are encouraged to participate and support BU Academy’s ongoing efforts to provide access for all qualified students.

The Vote For BUA! auction features over 135 items donated by businesses, parents and faculty members. Participants can bid on spending a week in the Turks and Caicos, a baseball autographed by Red Sox players during Spring Training, a Wii gaming system, and a handmade Persian rug, among other things.
