Holy Trinity Auction
17th Annual Auction
Save the Date! This year’s Auction, themed A Star-Spangled Night, will take place Friday, November 11, 2016 at the Airport Hyatt.
Be a star and shine by joining us on this Star Spangled Night! This year's Auction is sure to be another success, full of celebration and shining stars as our parents and HTS community work together to raise funds for Holy Trinity School.
What is the Auction?
Holy Trinity School holds both large & small fundraisers that contribute to its annual operating budget. Since its inception as a fundraiser 15 years ago, this event has generated over $450,000! Last year, the Auction was the school's largest fundraiser.
The evening consists of Live & Silent Auctions, a Chinese Auction, & assorted raffles, as well as appetizers & dinner for the attendees. During the Live Auction, a genuine auctioneer encourages bids from attendees in the room on a select group of items.
Last year’s Live Auction items included a week-long stay at Seven Springs, the entire collection of Wine Spectator’s 2014 Top Ten Wines, autographed Mike Eruzione jersey, weekend stay at the Loews Hotel in Annapolis, Lynn Swann autographed football, 4 tickets “On the Glass” to a Penguins game and bookshelves decorated by the kindergarten class!
Silent Auction items are bid on using your smartphone or tablet and include overnight stays at area hotels, restaurant gift cards, tickets to sporting events and theater shows. Parents are asked to sell tickets for the Grand Raffle and the 50/50 Raffle in advance and winners are drawn at the Auction (winners need not be present). This year’s Auction will also feature the popular Wine Pull Raffle.
