Auction 2019

Thank you for helping us raise nearly $285,000 at this year's Annual Auction!

St. Joan Antida High School's (SJA) 26th Annual Auction, “Women Learning. Women Leading.” was an incredible success thanks to the many alumnae, friends, donors, and volunteers who joined us in support of our students on Saturday, April 27. Raising nearly $285,000, this year's event set a new record for our school and we couldn’t be more thrilled and humbled by our incredible community of supporters – like you! 

More than 250 guests joined the event (despite the blizzard conditions outside!) The evening included raffles, silent and live auctions, along with our brand-new Golden Ticket (sold by Willy Wonka himself).

This year’s Auction celebrated SJA's nearly 65 years of empowering young women through education. Our guests experienced first-hand how incredible our young women are as many of our students served as volunteers during the event – greeting guests, selling raffle tickets, and even speaking during the dinner program. 

A sincere “thank you” to our 2019 Auction Co-Chairs, Lisa Dundas & Dave Roettgers, and Christine Fenske-Eben & Eric Eben, our fearless Auction Committee, and all of our generous Sponsors and Supporters for helping us raise vital funding for our much-deserving students!
