Holy Trinity Gala Auction

Each year we host an extravagant dinner with drinks, dancing, and hundreds of items to bid on during our silent, super silent, and live auctions. Big ticket items this year included a six-night Florida vacation with access to Universal Studios, a Traeger Pro 575 Smoker, Dinner with Bishop Joensen, and student experiences like the Donut Patrol ride along with Police Officer Vasquez and Principal for a Day.

Did you know…? $75,000 of gala auction proceeds go to the general school budget, allowing the cost of tuition to remain low. A portion of gala auction proceeds goes to the Holy Trinity Endowment Fund, which is used for major Parish expenses. Many building improvements have been funded in part by the auction, most recently the gym and social room flooring, church sound system upgrades, and classroom remodeling.

Holywarts, Where all the Magic Happens

Witches and wizards joined us for an enchanted evening on April 23, 2022. Our magnificent Gala Auction Crew cast a spell and transformed the gymnasium into the notorious Great Hall at Hogwarts. All attendees had a blast, and we raised approximately $65,000 for Holy Trinity! Scroll down for pictures.
