Hundreds of items to bid for with the Lycee's online auctions. An opportunity for everybody to find good deals and to contribute to the Lycee Francais de San Francisco's fundraising campaign. 


With it annual Gala approaching, the Lycee Français of San Francisco just opened its online auctions.


Special Gala since the Lycée Français de San Francisco is turning 50! As young as the Summer of Love...







If you are not familiar with the concept, auctions are a great, simple and convenient way to contribute to the Fundraising. 


Auctions are centered on the community. Local businesses, restaurants donate items to the school that you can buy putting bids on them. And all the proceeds go to the Lycee's development program



Fundraising relies on a global engagement of the local community. It is constructive, dynamic and interactive.









No need to be parents of the Lycée to participate and place bids. So don't hesitate to share the link to the auctions with family and friends.


To buy items, it's like going on eBay. You spot items that you like, you place bids, and get alerts when you have been overbidden.


There are 3 different types of auctions...


Online auctions... Items are available exclusively online. You have until March 19, 2017 at 8pm to place your bids.


Silent auctions... Items will be offered for bids only at the Gala on March 18, 2017.


Live auctions only... Items sold exclusively at the Gala with an auctioneer.


If you cannot attend the Gala and wish to participate to the auctions, you can contact the Lycée's development team at [email protected] to get a bid number. And then, you will be able to place bids from your cell phone on your sofa!





There is such a wide array of choices. We took a look and here are some ideas we picked here and there.


For the kids...


You can buy a week for a Summer Camp with the Lycée Français de San Francisco that organized a whole series of summer camps with a program based on a wide array of activities and tailor-made to match different age groups expectations and interests, in a bilingual environment.



You can also by passes to Petits Pas, the dance and yoga studio for kids and adults too, that is located near Glen Park. We have met Virginie, the French woman behind Petits Pas. After a year in San Francisco, she already convinced so many families to join the adventure.









You can also plan a pretty artsy birthday party with Alice Désert, who has been offereing art classes for kids and adults in San Francisco for the last 6 years already.





Discover Mini-Chic to dress them with a French touch. Mini-Chic is offering second-hand beautiful children clothes from renowmed French brands.



You could also choose Les Petits Carreaux, French style, made in San Francisco. The perfect mix according to LostinSF:-)




What about a watch, the OCTOPUS by JOY, to teach them good habits and the concept of time all at once. #parentingchallenge
