What could be more fun than scoring a great deal on Disney World passes or bidding against your friend to win the distinct honor of naming the street in front of the school? Held in February or March, the HCS Auction includes hundreds of donated items from area businesses as well as HCS families. It’s an evening of food, community, and likely a few great deals!
