“What is Auction”?

Auction is an annual fund-raiser for SJV School and Parish.  It’s a fun and exciting event with Silent Auction Bid Boards, a Live Auction, and numerous other raffles throughout the evening.  The items auctioned off are donated by local business, school parents, parishioners and other individuals in the community.


The event raises funds for:

  • SJV School technology
  • SJV student scholarships
  • Capital improvements in the parish and school.  

Past Auction proceeds have been applied to the following projects:

  • New computer labs
  • Upgraded the parish office and school wiring for campus wide WiFi
  • Various computer lab accessories, software, and internet services
  • Professional technical support to school and parish
  • New playground
  • Furnished a cart with 30 portable iPads
  • New state of the art Teacher Laptops
  • New Gym/Auditorium Sound System
  • New school office

Each year our Auction has a fun theme.  This year, we are celebrating that over $1 Million Dollars will have been raised through Auction for the SJV School.  Join us in celebrating with the SJV Millionaire’s Club: A Roaring 20’s Evening!  Feel free to dress in 20’s style fashion!
