WHAT IS THE OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL PARISH SCHOOL GALA & AUCTION?
The Gala & Auction, (formally the Wine Tasting Event) is our largest fundraiser of the year. This fun filled evening consists of dinner, dancing, a live and silent auction and raffle! Invitations will be coming home in your child’s end of the year report card envelope!
WHEN AND WHERE IS THIS YEAR’S GALA & AUCTION?
The event is Friday October 7, 2016, 6pm-11pm at Laurel Manor, Livonia, MI. Tickets are $75 each!
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GALA & AUCTION?
It is the major parent fundraiser for the year, as well as a fun-filled evening honoring the mission and spirit of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish School. The auction provides the funds necessary to support a variety of vital needs, including academic programs and campus needs, scholarship funds for those families needing assistance with tuition and to provide continued educational advancements as our children develop spiritually and academically.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
This event takes a village of volunteers to bring it to fruition. There are many volunteer opportunities and many ways to help! Please contact us if you would like to help! Currently, our biggest task is to acquire Auction Items!
WHERE DO THE RAFFLE AND AUCTION ITEMS COME FROM?
YOU!! The raffle and auction items come from donations made & acquired by Our Lady of Good Counsel families, alumnae and the auction acquisition committee. We are asking that each family make a personal donation of an item/gift card or certificate to be used in the auction or raffle AND/OR solicit a donation of goods or services from a business/corporation/team. Think “outside the box!” Check out the Auction Items page for some donation ideas.
New this year! Thanks to a generous anonymous donation we are able to offer ClickBid Mobile Bidding for our silent auction. Bidding will be easier than ever. Attendees will enter bids from their SmartPhone or other device capable of accessing the internet . Max Bid (Proxy Bidding) is utilized to increase bids and you will be notified directly on your device as bidding continues on your items.
