Auction Items

If you have not yet dropped off your physical auction item donations, please bring them to the Parish Admin Building or School Office as soon as possible. If you missed the procurement deadline, please consider making a monetary donation on our cash donation page. Thank you!

Raffle Tickets

Remember to sell your raffle tickets for a chance to win a $2,500 cash prize! Raffle tickets are $5 each. The drawing will be held during the live auction on April 8. All sold and unsold tickets must be turned into the Parish Admin Building or School Office by April 8.  

Auction Attire

St. John parents like to dress up! Many people have asked how they should dress for the auction. Since the theme, Back to the Future, covers several decades, it’s really up to you. You could go back to 1985 when Back to the Future was set, or back even further to the “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance in 1955. Semi-formal attire is also a great option. There are so many possibilities!

Thank You, Sponsors!

Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors. Your generosity helps reduce our overall auction costs so that more money raised goes directly back to the school. Please join us and thank these families when you see them around campus or in the neighborhood!
