It is a general rule of thumb in the fundraising industry to be “in the black” before event night so the dollars spent by patrons at the auction go directly towards the school and students. That means we are faced with the challenge of underwriting the cost of our event prior to go-time. With an event of our scale, this is a huge challenge, but with the help of generous supporters, we are able to face that challenge head-on.
This page allows you to gift a tax-deductible Cash Donation to assist in underwriting event costs so we can be "in the black" at go-time! Thank you so much for your support.
Holy Redeemer is a non-profit 501(c)(3). Our tax ID number is 93‑0964356.
~ AUCTION PARTIES WITH OPEN SPOTS ~
Auction parties are community gatherings hosted by generous benefactors who organize the event and cover expenses. This allows for the buy-in fee to benefit our school! Needless to say, we are over the moon grateful for our incredible hosts, and you will be too after you attend an auction party.
Many of our auction parties (Adult Dodgeball, Trivia Night, Guy's Poker Night, Homemade Ravioli Workshop, Tacos & Cocktails) sold out on auction night but the below parties still have space remaining! Grab your spot today!
