Auction Raises More Than $104,000
Thanks to everyone in the parish and community for the incredible support of our annual St. Xavier School auction. The hard work, dedication and donations helped us raise more than $104,000 that evening.
We were overwhelmed again by the generosity of our parishioners, parents, businesses, community members and are truly thankful. We had ~300 people present at the auction bidding on the great items made available by individuals and businesses.
The decorationswere amazing thanks to the dedication of the volunteers led by Honey Grant, Karlie Brown, and Marilyn Paras along with the parents and parishioners who transformed the gym.
The auction items were plentiful as was the food provided by many businesses and individuals. Special thanks to Coach’s, La Fiesta, Pizza Hut, Viva Pizza, Casey's, Little Caesars, and Stacy’s for their donations and Jaime Wahle Richling for coordinating.
We also thank Coors, Regelman Liquor, Evco, Jared Nelson and the Knights for taking care of the beverages.
We raised $13,730 in cash donations in the fina year of our 3-year project to have air conditioning installed in the gym. The project is matched by a $10,000 gift from the St. Xavier Parish Foundation . Please remember them in your estate planning.
Thanks to the talents of Chris Paxton, auctioneer, and the generosity of our bidders we were able to sell items for generous bids. Items included Name the Parish Driveway for a winning bid of $1600 and two dinners with Father Gale and Father Kyle for $2600 and $2500 respectively. The senior class auctioned themselves off as workers for 6 hours each netting $2400. We thank all of the donors and bidders for their generosity.
Congratulations to raffle winners Jaime Richling, $1000; , Sharon Griffin, $500; Dan Konrade, $250; and John Ricafort, $100. Cash board winners included Bob Henderson, $250 and David Dinsmore, $500.
On behalf of the Auction Committee, thank you once again. May God bless you all.
