Some of the items up for bid included a vacation home in Ireland, as well as a "romantic" vacation to Charleston, S.C.; a MacBook Pro laptop computer, and a paintball package pitting six Academy students against faculty members. A $10,000 raffle prize was also drawn. Art by the Academy's lower-school students was also auctioned off. Auctioneers were Erin Ward and Jill Doherty of the Long Island-based Star Benefit Auctions.
