36th Annual Auction: An Evening in Rome
Saturday, November 9, 2019
We look forward to “An Evening in Rome” on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the Marriott Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti. Our 36th annual dinner auction will kick off at 5:30 pm with cocktails and silent auction. Dinner and live auction will begin at 7:00 pm. At 9:00 pm, guests will enjoy live music from the band Chateau!
New and exciting live auction items include an original work of art created right before your eyes at the auction in just five minutes and unique experiences, such as a hot air balloon ride!
Our annual dinner auction supports Father Gabriel Richard High School and our mission of educating the next generation of Disciples of Christ with our distinctive program of academic excellence, intentional discipleship, creativity, and sportsmanship. Funds raised at the auction support the general operating budget of the school, teacher salaries, and programs for our students. Each year, we also Raise the Paddle for Scholarships to help students who could not otherwise afford a Catholic high school education.
We also offer many opportunities to volunteer, which is a great way for current parents to get involved in the school and connect with other parents in the community. Visit our auction page to learn how you can make an impact.
Invitations will be mailed soon, so check your mailbox and make plans to attend! We have also reserved a block of rooms at the Marriott for those who wish to come for the evening and stay the night! Details are now available on our auction page.
Benvenuti a Roma!
