What is Auction?

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

The event raises funds for:

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

Past Auction proceeds have been applied to the following projects:

  • New computer labs and various computer lab accessories, software, and internet services
  • Upgrades to the parish office and school wiring for campus wide WiFi
  • Professional technical support to school and parish
  • New playground
  • Furnished a cart with 30 portable iPads
  • New Laptops for teachers
