We hope you will reserve Saturday, February 25, 2017 and join us as we celebrate our Annual Gala & Auction. We are already hard at work on this event, which promises some fabulous new Kentucky Derby inspired surprises!
Last year’s gala sold out in only a few days and raised a record number of donations. Your continued support enables the success of St. Ignatius Parish School and Community. Fundraising for this event helps enhance school programs and provides essential funds for critical needs of the school. Additionally, proceeds from the Gala & Auction support the operating costs of the school which helps keep tuition affordable.
Please find more information on the St Ignatius Parish School Gala & Live Auction at www.SIGala.org.
This year we Broke the SI School Record for gross revenue earned at Gala with an incredible increase of 6% — even with event attendance down 25%! Thank you for your generous donations, purchases and time. The school depends on the revenue generated by Parent Club to operate its basic functions for our children. The money raised helps fund school needs and the gap in the price of tuition and the actual cost to operate the school.
