General Information & Ticketing

The 8th Annual SOFi's Night Charity Auction benefiting Bolton Academy is coming up next Saturday, March 12, at the Westside Warehouse, from 7 to 11 pm (6 pm if you're a SOFi VIP!)

Auction Registration

If you're attending the event in person or participating virtually, you must register for the event on the auction website, so that you can bid on and purchase auction items, as well as purchase wine from our wine wall and buy 50/50 rings for the raffle (more information on those below). Note that registration is a separate process from purchasing tickets or sponsorships via the website.


COVID Protocols

To ensure the safety of our guests, we are requiring that every attendee provide either (1) proof of full vaccination plus booster shot OR (2) a negative professionally-administered COVID test (PCR or antigen) taken no earlier than Wednesday, March 9, at 7 pm (72 hours before the event) or proof of positive infection in the past 90 days. Note that an at-home rapid test does not qualify as a professionally-administered test.


If you will be adhering to protocol #1 above, please bring your vaccine card(s), or an image of your card(s) on your phone, in each case showing original vaccinations plus booster shot, to the event. If you will be adhering to protocol #2, please bring proof of your negative COVID test (taken after Wednesday at 7 pm) or proof of your prior COVID infection within the last 90 days to the event. You can also email this information to soaringowls@gmail.com in advance.


Auction Items

We are so thankful for all of the exciting donations for this year's auction! We've got gift certificates and baskets, tickets, tour packages, vacations and lots more — and remember our awesome baskets that each Bolton grade puts together! We already have some of our live and silent auction items listed on the event website, and there are more to come! Remember that people can donate and bid on the silent auction items virtually if they can't attend in person, so feel free to forward the auction site link to friends and family! Live auction items are only up for bid for our in-person guests. If you are participating virtually and win a silent auction item, SOFi will contact you after the event to arrange for you to get your item.


Wine Wall and 50/50 Raffle

SOFi’s Night Wine Wall is already open for business! $20 buys you a mystery bottle of wine (with a value of at least $20), and we have some great ones available this year. You can buy the night of the event, but quantities are limited, so you're welcome to buy yours early. Also available for immediate purchase are tickets for the 50/50 raffle, where the winner splits the pot with SOFi!


Simply visit our auction site and register/sign in to make your Wine Wall and 50/50 raffle purchases. The 50/50 raffle will be held on site at the event. If you purchase bottles from the Wine Wall, you can either bring them home from the event, or if you're participating virtually, SOFi will reach out after the event to coordinate pick-up.


Childcare at D-BAT

Finally, registration is now open if you'd like to have your child(ren) spend the evening at D-Bat Buckhead during SOFi's Night. Click on the link, then select the signup link for "2022 Bolton Academy Parents Night Out" on March 12. Childcare will run from 5 to 11 pm and will include a pizza dinner. The cost is $20 per child, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Bolton Academy! Space is limited, so please sign up today.


We cannot wait to see everyone and celebrate Bolton and the amazing community that supports it!
