What is the Auction?

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.
