As we come to the end of the first quarter, it's time to start planning for this year's annual auction. If you volunteered to help or would like more information about our major fundraising event, please plan to attend this meeting.

  • Meet the Auction Co-Chairs and Committee chairs
  • Share your ideas and give suggestions
  • Learn how the success of the auction affects every St. Francis family

The auction goal is $250,000 which will help bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the actual cost to educate each student. The number of volunteers directly impacts the success of the auction. Bring a friend and find out how you can help St. Francis High School achieve auction SUCCESS!
