St. James Support Events


Spring Auction

As one of its annual fundraisers, St. James Catholic School hosts an amazing Spring Auction that delights all the senses. This gala includes an online silent auction, auctioneered live auction, dancing (with DJ or live band), delectable buffet, beautiful theme-based baskets to bid on, 100+ bottle wine pull, and delightful mingling and socializing with St. James parents, teachers/staff, alumni, and friends of St. James.

As a Catholic school, our mission depends on the support of parishioners, the families we serve, and the businesses in the community. St. James is an excellent example of the importance of where community, administration, faculty and parent involvement lead to a well-rounded education. All the proceeds go towards the learning environment for the children in the form of educational materials, smart boards, books, classroom upgrades, scholarships, etc.

This year the gala will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2020, at Blackhawk Country Club, Madison, Wisconsin, with about 200+ attendees. Tickets will be available both online and as mailed invitations. We cannot express how grateful we are for your participation and support in this event.
