2022 St Gerald Angel Auction fundraiser video
What is the Guardian Angel Dinner and Auction?
The Guardian Angel Dinner and Auction ("Angel Auction") is the largest annual parish/school fundraiser organized and planned by fellow parishioners and school parents led by Molly Diamond, Volunteer Event Manager. The Angel Auction has become a special tradition at St. Gerald as 2022 will mark the 24th anniversary of the event. While a very important aspect of the event is to raise funds, it is also a celebration of fellowship. This year attendees will experience an atmosphere full of fun, laughter, and the ability to enjoy each other's company. Each year, the Angel Auction Committee selects a special theme, and the 2022 theme is Sit Down for the Fun(raiser)! Attendees will have an opportunity to get a little "punny" while supporting the mission and vision of St. Gerald Catholic Church & School.
How are the funds raised at the Angel Auction used?
Funds raised continue to provide support for school capital and operational improvements. This year a focus for funding is to improve bathrooms, which have not been renovated in many years. In fact, attendees will have an opportunity to put their money directly toward specific items such as faucets, toilet seats, plungers, and more. You will even be able to vote on which restroom you'd like to see completed first! We set the fundraising goal at $75,000, but we would love to top that goal and have all restrooms remodeled.
How can you help reach our fundraising goal?
It is simple... we prayerfully ask that all of our parishioners consider contributing in one or more of the following ways: Donate! Serve! Attend!
For the past three years, we've partnered with a full service, mobile bidding firm to help us manage our auction and more fully engage our attendees. We will once again be using mobile bidding which allows participants to engage in the event registration, raffles, games, and more!
