Our Auction is a fun-filled evening with dinner, silent, big board and live auctions. There are also opportunities to participate in a raffle and register for sign-up parties. It is held annually every spring to raise funds for Strake Jesuit College Preparatory.
The Auction was first organized in 1981 to contribute financial support to the school’s operating budget. Today, proceeds from the auction not only help to grow the school’s general endowment providing resources for the future, but also enhance the current operating budget. Funds that we raise support programs such as financial aid, student retreats, athletics, teacher compensation and extracurricular activities. In other words, funds raised by the auction will benefit every student, every day at Strake Jesuit.

Parents of freshman are invited to participate in this ‘group gift’. This annual tradition pools our donations and a wine expert purchases wines at a discount to create a special live auction item. Contributions of any amount are appreciated!
The auction offers a wide variety of items, and your donations of any size and type are greatly appreciated. Those hoping to support the auction can use our donor form or order online and ship a donation directly to the school.
Your donation need not be limited to the suggestions on the registries. Popular auction items include the use of vacation homes, tickets to sporting and theater events, high-tech gadgets, handmade items and jewelry.
