2018 Annual Auction Gala – A Starry Knight
Continuing the celebration of the 25th Anniversary this year, the Annual Auction Gala, held Friday, April 20th, was A Starry Knight: Shining Christ’s Light for 25 Years. St. Joseph’s largest fundraiser of the year involves hundreds of hours of planning, and included all members of the SJCS family: students, staff, parents, friends, and community partners. This year’s Gala Committee was co-chaired by Mary Salgado and Michelle Mullins, and supported by a fabulous team of parent volunteers.
More than 500 guests enjoyed an evening of food, fun, and dancing while placing their Silent and Live Auction bids to financially support the Annual Fund – the 7% of St. Joseph’s budget not covered by tuition. The Annual Fund in turn supports: Financial Aid, Academic Programs, Athletics, Fine Arts, Campus Ministry, and Student Life.
The Development Office is thrilled to report a projected net contribution of approximately $285,000 to the Annual Fund as a result of the Gala! Thank you for your generous support of the mission of St. Joseph’s!
