I’m excited for a party! What should I expect at the DANK Haus?

  • Great food & drinks: Heavy appetizers starting at 6:15pm, and an open bar serving beer, wine and soft drinks

  • Fun games of chance: Heads-or-Tails and Mystery Wine Pull

  • Silent auction, live auction, fund-a-need

  • DJ music and dancing

  • Lots of opportunities to connect with the amazing Viking community!

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ON TIMING: Be sure to arrive by 7pm at the latest so you don't miss any of the action! The Raise the Sails program will kick off around 7:15pm - don't miss the excitement!


Please get me out of these sweats. But what should I wear?

We’re calling it “snappy casual,” but we can’t wait to see you no matter what you wear!


What’s the difference between the online silent auction and the live auction? 

The online silent auction is now open, and the bidding will close at approximately 9 p.m. on March 12, the night of Raise the Sails. If you've purchased a Ticket to Raise the Sails - NO NEED TO REGISTER - just use the link you received via text or email from Greater Giving to directly access your private bidding page. Lost your link? Our check-in team can resend when you arrive at Raise the Sails.


The live auction will take place during Raise the Sails at the DANK Haus. Check out the “Live Auction” category in the Raise the Sails auction page for a preview of these items. 


What happens if I win an auction item?

At the end of the night, you’ll check out. DON'T FORGET TO CHECK-OUT. At this time, you’ll pay for anything you purchased and pick up your items. For folks who aren’t at Raise the Sails but win items, we’ll schedule a pickup point after the event.


What’s Fund-A-Need?

Fund-A-Need is a straight donation to help Amundsen raise funds. This year, our Fund-A-Need hopes to raise $20,000 to equip our classrooms with short throw interactive projectors. Donors can give via online bidding or as part of the Live Fund-A-Need event at the DANK Haus. 


What if I can’t attend the event? Can I still support Raise the Sails?

YES! Here’s how:

  1. Bid in the online silent auction. Get started here: 

  2. Share the online silent auction link with family, friends and neighbors: 

  3. Donate to Fund-A-Need online here.


Raise the Sails is Friends of Amundsen’s biggest annual fundraiser supporting Amundsen. The funds raised support AHS programs for all Amundsen students.
