We are excited to announce that our 2020 auction will be held on Saturday, February 22nd from 5:30 p.m. to Midnight. A BIG thank you to Katie Winson for volunteering to Chair this great event! This year’s theme is “Gala in the Garden” and Katie has some great ideas to make the evening new, exciting, and truly a blooming success. One idea is a change in the entertainment in Holy Family Hall after the Live Auction (more details to come), which will surly cause our Patron Tables to sell out FAST! You will want to be ready and act quickly when tickets and tables go on sale this fall. More info will be shared at Back to School Night!
