Now in its 41st year, one of the most important annual traditions at St. Patrick’s is the Auction to Benefit the Financial Aid Program. One in five students receives a financial aid grant, but all 515 students benefit from this wonderful program. The Auction raises one-third of the annual budget of the Financial Aid Program.
ur commitment to socioeconomic diversity defines, in part, who we are as a school and enriches and strengthens our entire community. Your support of the Auction enables us to continue fulfilling that commitment as 100% of the Auction proceeds are restricted for use by the Financial Aid Program.
The success of the Auction ultimately depends on contributions of our parent volunteers and community contributors. Businesses in the Washington area, as well as businesses from many other states and abroad, can support the Financial Aid Program by donating items or services to be auctioned off or by placing an advertisement in the Auction catalog.
This year's Auction, "Spirit of America!" will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2015 here in Washington, DC. For more information about this year's Auction, please view the important forms and materials in the right-hand column.
