About the Auction

Our annual charity auction event is one of the largest fundraisers for our school. Its success every year is due to our extraordinary parents, parish families, and the local community.
 
The event is a ticketed dinner with a silent and live auction that typically takes place the second Saturday in February. Non-attending tickets may be purchased to bid on silent auction items.

There are opportunities to volunteer and sponsor the event.

SAVE THE DATE: FEBRUARY 12, 22

What type of items should I donate to the silent auction?


Great question! We have a wonderful community that shares their goods and services with our school every year. Typically, gift certificates, small bundles, and items with a retail value under $150 will be available for online bidding. Consider only donating new or like new items. Think about getting together with a few friends to come up with fun themed basket that will generate most funds for the school.




What type of items should I donate for the live auction?


We are so thankful that every year amazing community members show up for our school in a big way-- our live auction generates the most revenue for our school. We typically include items with a retail value over $150 in our live auction. Sometimes we may bundle multiple themed items together to give attendees a fun bundle to bid on. Here are some ideas for items to donate: Host a party: Wine tasting, beer tasting, chocolate tasting, the ideas are endless. Organize a unique experience: Cooking/Dining with a popular chef; Behind-the-scenes tour; hike or camping trip. Offer a stay in a vacation home: Table Rock, Ozarks, Grand Lake, Colorado, or beyond! Share a special skill: Teach a group how to dance, fly-fish, cook, bake, hit a line drive, knit, etc. Donate event tickets: Sporting events, concerts, shows, ballet, plays, etc. Contribute goods and services: Gift certificates to retail shops or restaurants, bottles of wine and champagne, spa or gym gift certificates, sports memorabilia, etc.




How do I volunteer?


We are always looking for community members to share their time and talent with the school. We need help with data entry, making calls, and reaching out to the community. If you can help, email Chris Whitehair. Include "Charity Auction Volunteer" in the subject line and let her know how you can help make this event a success!
