Welcome to NPS Auction 2019!

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius...


In the Summer of '69, Hair was one of the hottest tickets on Broadway; come share your love for NPS on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at the Intercontinental Hotel-The Wharf!

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 (see below!) and, once again, the Kimbells' beautiful house in Park City.

Featured Item
Dallas Cowboys 50 Yard Line

Enjoy one of the premier sporting events in the country with two (2) VIP tickets on the 50-yard line to any Dallas Cowboys home game at spectacular AT&T Stadium. Located in the Founder's Club, your seats come with every amenity you can think of so you can just sit back and enjoy some great football. And before and after the game, you will enjoy two nights at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton in Dallas. The perfect getaway for your favorite NFL fan!

The Venue
Intercontinental DC - The Wharf

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 (NPS) group rate (please call by 2/6/19) OR click here to book online (rate will be automatically applied). 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!
