The Shelton Parents' Association
is proud to present the

27th Annual Stampede Benefit & Auction

Join friends and fellow parents for the Shelton Parents’ Association’s largest fundraiser. The money raised by the Stampede is used by Shelton to pay for the special programs our kids love like theatre, visual arts, music, athletics, technology as well as the Shelton Faculty Fund.

The evening will feature a seated, three course dinner from one of Dallas’ premier caterers. Complimentary beverages include premium bar selections at three bar locations.

Be prepared to open your hearts and your wallets to bid on the amazing auction items that have been graciously donated by Shelton supporters. There will be once-in-a-lifetime experiences offered in the Live Auction and valuable art, jewelry, collectibles and personal services offered on the Big Board. In addition to traditional Heads or Tails and Mystery Bags, this year there will be a Wine Pull with wines ranging in value from $25 to $250.

The Bomb Factory is a state of the art 50,000 square foot music and concert venue located in historic Deep Ellum. The music of Journey is guaranteed to take you back to school dances and proms. And VOYAGE has been hailed by fans and critics alike as the BEST JOURNEY tribute band in the world. Fans agree that VOYAGE delivers the closest experience to the original Steve Perry fronted lineup.

There is no doubt that everyone in attendance will have an amazing evening while contributing to the success and education of the students of Shelton.


Contributions to the Shelton Stampede make a genuine difference and the impact extends beyond this year. The benefits to Shelton students will last a lifetime. Funds raised through underwriting and sponsorships offset the expenses of the event, ensuring that even more dollars go directly to the students.

There are a few corporate and individual sponsorships still available. Benefits include: VIP seating, recognition in multiple forms of print, online and signage at the event.

This year, there is a unique opportunity for underwriters to purchase a table with a special benefit - a table for 10 plus a private viewing experience in an upstairs suite. There are a very limited number of these and they are selling fast.

Don't miss out on this special opportunity to not only make a difference in the lives of hundreds of students - but to ensure your company or family name is displayed prominently in front of 1,000+ members of the Shelton community.
