Auction 2018

With event chairs Steve and Jackie Fitzgerald, P’16, ’18, ’22, and their talented steering committee at the helm, a fabulous evening was had by all at this year’s auction.  Held at Anthony’s Ocean View—a wonderful seaside location—we Set Sail with Sacred Heart Academy and Anchored Our Hearts in Giving.

Close to 300 guests gathered and nearly $170,000 was raised to benefit our students. Again this year, the mobile technology Text2Bid was used for the silent auction, offering a high energy alternative to the traditional bidding process. The live auction was the most spirited ever, garnering $50,000 and Hands Up for Heart, always the most memorable part of the evening because it supports need-based scholarships, raised $70,000. Manythanks to our generous alumnae, parents, students, and friends for helping in so many ways to make our signature benefit a success!
