Annual School Auction

“The Great Gatsby”
Saturday, November 11, 2017
The Hyatt Regency, Huntington Beach

It is time to kick up your heels at the Great Gatsby Annual Auction! It is the event of the year…Lights, crowds, drinks, suits, dresses, and class!  As beach kids, we know how to have a good time just as much as Gatsby and the beautiful women, handsome men, flappers, musicians, and artists of the 1920’s did. Incredible auction items will be available to bid on…trips, unique experiences, sporting events, kids’ parties, local restaurants and a variety of baskets filled with goodies!

Our Annual Auction is the largest fundraising event of the year. This exciting event is open to all school and parish families and has tremendous exposure for your business.  In addition to raising money to support our school, the Annual Auction is a great evening of fun and friends. Please consider attending. If you cannot attend, please consider supporting Sts. Simon & Jude School in another way through a donation or sponsorship.
