January 2019 | Issue 1

Welcome to NPS Auction 2019!

It is officially 2019 and that means our 50th anniversary year is upon us! We can't wait for you to join us March 9 at the beautiful Intercontinental Hotel at the Wharf for our celebration of the Summer of '69!


So many amazing things happened that year—Sesame Street debuted! The Gap opened! We said Hello to Dolly and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid! The Very Hungry Caterpillar was published!


And, oh yeah, Neil Armstrong took one small step. . .


And in the fall of 1969, NPS opened its doors to its first students. (And a pet rabbit!)


Mark your calendars for March 9, 2019—you won't want to miss it!

Auction Wish List

We have some spectacular things already lined up: tickets to the ultimate golf destination: the Masters; a glorious trip to Napa; 50-yard line VIP tickets to any Dallas Cowboys game and, once again, the Kimbells' beautiful house in Park City.


We need your help! Some of the far-out fun items we are still looking for:

  • A stay at your beautiful vacation home — always an auction favorite
  • Game tickets and VIP experiences for the Caps, Wizards, Nats, and Redskins
  • Gift cards to your favorite restaurants
  • Unique experiences in Washington, DC and beyond

The Venue
Demi Lovato Ben Folds Taylor Swift

We have a radical new venue this year: The Intercontinental at the Wharf, which was just named the winner of the Conde Nast 2018 Reader's Choice Award as the best hotel in Washington.


All our groovy fun will be overlooking the best view in DC! And no need to rush out this year—spend the night! We have arranged a special room rate of $229. Simply call the hotel at 1-833-249-1029 and ask for the National Presbyterian School group rate (please call by 2/6/19). The next morning you can explore the beautiful Wharf before you head home to reality!


So start collecting that tie-dye and book your sitter!
