The event was due to be held on January 18 but was postponed because of the heavy snow.
Callum is on the committee organising this summer's annual prom for year 11 leavers.
This year's prom will be held at Lord and Lady Walpole's Wolterton Hall.
Callum wrote to, phoned, emailed and visited scores of businesses and attractions and asked for items to offer at the auction of promises.
Lots arrived every day, according to the teenager, who is Aylsham high's community champion.
Proceeds from the event will mainly go towards prom funds and a percentage will go towards WaterAid, the charity chosen by the prom committee.
Callum and fellow pupils Phoebe Worrall and Harry Gillingwater all took part in the Cromer Boxing Day dip for the cause and prom committee members have been bag packing in Morrisons supermarket to raise funds.
They are also planning a fundraising fashion show later in the year.
WaterAid is an international non governmental organisation that improves access to safe water, hygiene, and sanitation in the world's poorest countries.
