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.

Underwriters help to make the auction a success by sponsoring portions of the event. Underwriters may be individuals, companies, or groups of friends. These donations may be tax deductible.

All underwriters are recognized in the Auction Program which is mailed to 1800 homes in March and on the big screen at the event.

More ways to support the Auction:


Parents of freshmen are invited to join as a group to underwrite the Wine Cellar for the Live Auction.  Monetary donations of any amount may be made either by mail (to Strake Jesuit, Attn: Auction), or online.  

Parents of sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to join as a group to underwrite a trip to Napa Valley for the Live Auction.  Monetary donations of any amount may be made either by mail (to Strake Jesuit, Attn: Auction), or online.  

Collaborating with other families on a group gift is a wonderful way to participate.  Consider putting together a trip, a collection of fine wines, a night on the town – USE YOUR IMAGINATION!


Of course we NEVER turn this down and would be happy to purchase a gift on your behalf, sometimes allowing us to choose just the right item to complete a package or to help underwrite a trip. We will accept cash donations any time prior to our event.
