The Chilmark Parent Teacher Organization is gathering sponsorships and auction items for an online fundraiser to benefit the Chilmark School's outing program.

The program supports student activities such as sailing aboard the Shenandoah, dancing with the Yard and kayaking local estuaries as a part of the school curriculum, according to an announcement from the PTO.

The upcoming fundraiser, titled Hearts of Gold | Bids for the Kids, is a virtual auction taking place March 15 to March 21. A Hawaiian vacation, a custom private dinner by Chef Amy and professional fitness services are among the items that will be up for bidding.
