We anticipate record-setting levels of giving throughout this fundraising event which features a silent auction and a live auction (new this year!). Funds raised will help to bridge “the gap” between tuition income and the actual cost of educating a child. Additionally, this year’s fund-a-need portion of the event will focus on the specific goal of raising at least $10,000 that will go toward the purchase of twenty new iPads for the classrooms. You may preview auction items after the Masses on the weekend of January 26-27.
