What is the Auction?

The Auction Committee works to organize the annual NIS Auction. This exciting event is held in the spring and usually includes some combination of dinner, dancing, raffles and both a silent and live auction. The Committee's main tasks, along with a troop of volunteers, are to choose a date, place and theme, plan the agenda, solicit items to be put up for bid and ensure all things run smoothly that night. All NIS parents, teachers, staff, administration and alumni are invited, along with other friends of NIS from the Tokyo community. 

The proceeds from the Auction are one of the major sources of revenue for the TNK, which is used to help improve the NIS community externally and internally.
