HOPE Dinner and Auction

  A Heartfelt THANK YOU to all our Sponsors!


 The HOPE Dinner and Auction is the largest fundraiser held yearly at the school and consists of many, many hours of year-round preparation by nearly a hundred volunteers and is culminated in an evening of socializing, fine dining, exquisite decorating and high quality auction items.  The first HOPE Dinner and Auction, an idea originated by then principal-Sister Dorothy Zeller, was a Spaghetti Supper and Auction held January 19, 1992 at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

Join us for our Annual HOPE Dinner and Auction on Saturday, October 1st.   The theme will be Celebrating and Envisioning; Celebrating a Legacy of 125 years of Faith and Educational Excellence; Envisioning a Sensational Future.   Please reserve the date and continue to look for more information going forward.  The evening traditionally begins at 5:00 pm with a social hour where guests can enjoy appetizers and live music while strolling through the hundreds of auction items. Dinner starts at 6:00 pm with prayer and a four course meal.  Entertainment by the students of St. John’s Academy precedes the live auction, which have all been presided over by More From Orr Auction Services; Cliff, Val, Troy, Darron, Bev and Barb Orr; alumnus of St. John’s Academy.
