The autumnal equinox is on Sept. 22, but you can get a jump on it at the Fall Equinox Silent Auction to benefit Eagle Rock High School on Thursday, Sept. 6 at the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock (2225 Colorado Blvd.). The event, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., will be an open house with wine, hors d’ouevres and music. Welcoming remarks are at 7 p.m. You can put in a bid on various goods and services from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Adults only. The silent auction is put on by Eagle Endeavors, a nonprofit group of parents, faculty and community members who raise money to support Eagle Rock Jr./Sr. High School. The top priority is to buy 400 laptops ($275/device) and 60 projectors ($500/unit).
