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 many volunteers and is a wonderful evening of fellowship, fine dining, and many silent and live 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 12, 2019- St. John's Academy Past. Present. Future.   Please reserve the date and continue to look for more information going forward.  The evening traditionally begins at 4:00 pm with a social hour where guests can enjoy appetizers and live music while strolling through the hundreds of auction items.
