The festive auction, as PGL’s major fundraising activity, is of critical importance to its program. You are invited to participate. Here’s how:


Tickets to the auction include the buffet dinner and childcare for those with young children.

Tickets are available for advance purchase or at the door (sorry, no reservations without payment). Due to the popularity of the auction advance purchase is highly recommended. Choose one of two ways:

  • Access the online ticket ordering site, then, on the right-hand side, click on “PGL Auction: Nicaragua Night” and complete the form. Deadline for online ticket orders is Thursday, January 14, 2016.
  • Contact the Center for Public Service at Campus Box 2456, Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, PA 17325, or at 717-337-6490 and submit cash or check for your tickets.

Indicate whether you would like to pick up your tickets at the CPS, receive them by mail, or pick them up the evening of the auction at “Will Call.”

If you purchase 10 tickets and reserve a table, you can indicate whether you prefer to have your table toward the front or back of the room.
