On Saturday, May 13, 2023 Federal Hill Preparatory School (FHPS) will host its annual Spring Fling and Silent Auction. The FHPS Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sponsors this carnival style event each year to support special programs and school improvements for our Baltimore City public elementary school students.  FHPS classes range from 3-year old programs up to 5th grade. Our goal is to raise enough money to provide field trip support, school-wide enrichment programs, and free or low cost after school programming.

The auction is LIVE and closes at 4pm on Saturday May 13th. Anyone can buy a teacher donated item and support that teacher UNLESS the category is teacher experience, then the item is just available to PREP students/families.


We also have great raffle items (4 Frozen VIP tickets; Yeti Cooler and gift set; Meta VR Headset) Purchase your raffle tickets:

How to bid on bidding owl:

Set up an account on bidding owl. The account allows you to keep track of your bids, continue bidding if you get out-bid, and pay for the item via PayPal once the auction is complete.

As you sign up for an account, use your cell number for texting and an email address so we can easily contact you. This is how we will get in touch with you to confirm payment and pickup.

Once your account is setup,and you are logged in, you can start bidding!

From our main auction page, you can either search for a specific item using the search bar, or browse all items via the green dropdown button. We have over 175 items so please continue on to next page to see more delights!

Once you have found an item you'd like to bid on, enter at least the minimum bid amount and press "Bid". You may also put in the maximum amount you'd like to bid on an item, so it will automatically add a higher bid if someone outbids you on the item. 

See something that you just have to have? You can hit the buy now button and purchase the item; no one will be able to bid on it once this has been purchased. 

At the end of the auction go to checkout on this site to pay/check out then proceed to lobby of school to pick up winnings. If you are not at the school at auction close, be on lookout for an email to coordinate pick up in Federal Hill in the next 2 weeks. Winners must pay for items within 2 weeks from close of auction and before pick up can occur. We are unable to mail any items.
