The auction is the school’s largest community-building event and fundraiser. Hundreds of items will be available to bid on through our Online Auction, Silent Auctions and spectacular Live Auction. Check out Auction 101 to find out what to expect.
The proceeds from this event reduce the school’s reliance on tuition as the sole source of operational revenue. Each year, the auction contributes well over $75,000 directly to the school.
Within the Auction, a fund-an-item is developed after consulting with the principal, staff and Parent Club. This fund-an-item targets a particular need of the school and asks members of the parish and school community to support it during the auction. This fund-an-item is sometimes a curricular enhancement (like technology software or hardware), a project (like renovating the library) or tuition assistance. Increasing the school’s tuition assistance has been part of the school’s fund-an-item for the past five years.
Invitations will be mailed to all school families in February and we expect over 200 friends of OLL to at tend. We will send an invitation to anyone you would like to invite: your friends, family and neighbors. Check out Attending the Auction to find out more and see how to invite your friends.
