Join Lincoln parents and staff for an evening of live music, dancing, cash bar and appetizers. Plus, you can bid for one-of-a-kind auction items (like a chance to be Lincoln Principal for the Day). Special thanks to our Bash sponsor, Suzy’s Cream Cheesecakes.

Curious about what is being auctioned at the Lincoln Bolt Bash? Not able to go this year? No worries! You can bid online, starting now! 😀

You are welcome to wait and bid on Saturday, but you will need an online account, so it’s a good idea to complete steps 1 and 2 before the weekend! If you can’t attend the Bash, you can still bid online and nab your favorite items. 🚲⛳🍷🚒

The money that is raised by Lincoln PTO through this auction provides enrichment for our students and helps fill the needs of our school. 🏫
