The FantaSHA Auction has been Sacred Heart Academy's signature event since it began in 1991 as an annual fundraiser to make premier Catholic education affordable and attainable for all deserving young women. By the late 1990s, the auction transitioned to a biennial event, alternating years with the Hearts of the Community dinner. In 2013, FantaSHA returned to the calendar as an annual affair.
FantaSHA always boasts a memorable evening with stunning staging, gourmet cuisine, and fine beverages. Guests have the opportunity to bid on and win an astonishing assortment of prizes, gifts, and must-haves of the year in the silent auction, live auction, and gift baskets.

A huge thank you to those who helped with this year's auction. Under the leadership of dedicated chairs David and Kristen Falls, our event was truly “a swell affair with a twenties flair!”
Over 100 parents, alumnae and friends of SHA worked to make FantaSHA ’14 the bee's knees and 50 students, alumnae and parents volunteered the night of the auction! A freshman family even won $10,000 in the Razzle Dazzle Raffle. Nearly $153,000 (net) was generated from FantaSHA ’14 and over $72,000 was raised for scholarship through “Hands Up for Heart”.
Special thanks to our Hands Up for Heart partners...
