2016 Auction

Dear Friends of St. Mary Catholic School,

The annual St. Mary School Auction continues to enhance the educational experience for current and future students. Since its inception in 1997, the money raised has contributed to the improvement of our school grounds and building. All proceeds are invested directly in the future of St. Mary, through improvements. Recent projects included new desks, bleachers, improved technology infrastructure and more.  

The 2016 auction is scheduled for April 30 in the school gym. We hope to use the funds to update the 1960’s era heating and cooling system and creating space for a chapel and conference room.  

You have been very generous in previous years with your donations of goods or services, so we humbly ask for your continued assistance. Your tax deductible contribution may be made a physical item, gift certificate, or cash donation. Higher valued gifts will be placed in the live auction, while others in the silent auction. Your donation earns display of your company’s name in advertisements and event promotional materials. 

On behalf of our students who attend our parish based tuition-free school, we thank you for helping to improve their future and the future of many more who will walk the halls of St. Mary. Thank you for your consideration. You may send your donation to the school address at 101 E. 9th St. Newton, KS 67114, attention St. Mary Auction. Dinner tickets are also available through the school office at (316) 282-1974 for $40 each or a table of 8 for $280.

We are grateful for your support and kind consideration.
