Here's your latest look at what to expect at the 49th Annual Dinner & Auction on Feb. 29!

If your heart belongs in the Big Apple, we have a treat for you during the live auction! Two nights in the city for up to four people, including accommodations in an upscale Hilton on 42nd Street with two queen beds. You will also take s a subway ride to Citi Field to watch 2019 Home Run Derby winner and Rookie of the Year, Pete Alonso, and the rest of the New York Mets take on the defending World Series champions, the Washington Nationals, on Saturday, June 13. Additionally, you will enjoy a dining experience at two of the city's oldest eateries in the East Village – John's of 12th Street (featured in Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) and Veniero's Patisseries & Cakes!

We all deserve to treat ourselves, and this year, we can do just that by visiting the "Leap Year Loot" table where everyone's a winner! For just $25, you have the opportunity to win prizes valued between $25 and $250, including gift cards to restaurants, salons, and your favorite clothing stores!

Also in the live auction: the opportunity to have fun with the family locally by bidding on a two-night stay in a three-bedroom cottage at Bethpage Camp-Resort in Urbanna, Virginia. Experience the outdoors and old-fashioned fun while cruising around this picturesque site in your own golf cart rental, thanks to Dodd RV.

Everyone wants to give their child the gift of sports fun with friends. Available in the live auction, your child will get a "kick" out of choosing a group of friends to help them beat the faculty in a kickball game at school this spring!

Basket, bike, and bottle – Nice weather will be coming soon, and what better way to enjoy it than taking a bike ride on the Virginia Capital Trail near Upper Shirley Vineyards? Four people can enjoy bike rentals, two wine tasting certificates, and a bottle of wine. Just bring along a picnic lunch which will fit perfectly in your bike basket, and the day will be complete!

Worried your senior will miss Walsingham after graduation? Purchase a gorgeous graduation gift hand-sketched by former Walsingham parent and teacher, Patti Dwyer, of Pen & Pencil. This original, framed art will provide long-term memories of the school we all hold dear!
