posted Feb 19 2018 10:00 PM

Marquette Catholic High School’s annual dinner auction is right around the corner. Please consider supporting the Explorer Club’s largest fundraiser. Money raised helps the Explorer Club provide scholarships and gift funds to the school to help enhance the education and continue to improve the school for current and future students.

There are many ways that you can help make this event a success!

Sponsorships - We have many different levels of sponsorships available. This is an opportunity to promote your business and support Marquette. Check out all the levels online at www.marquettecatholic.org/auction.

Donations - Donations are needed for our silent and oral auction. Items donated in the past have included
but not limited to gift certificates, jewelry, restaurant gift cards, home furnishings, vacations, and
parties... You can make your own basket or donate an individual item and we will add other donations to create a basket. Donate individually or as a group. Need some idea for a basket or oral auction item? Check out the “wish list” online at www.marquettecatholic.org/auction. Donations can be dropped off at Marquette Catholic High School in the Development Office or mailed to Marquette Explorer Club/Auction, P.O.Box 311, Alton, IL 62002. Donations are requested to be turned in by March 9th. Donation pick up can also be arranged.

Attend - Join in the fun! This is a night to mingle with old friends, meet some new and perhaps find something you have to have! Tables fill up quickly, so get your table registrations in early. You can purchase your tickets online at www.marquettecatholic.org/auction.

Volunteer - This is a great way to get service hours. There are many ways to help out leading up to, during and after the auction. Is your child involved in a school club or sport? We are looking for a parent from each club and sports team to organize a basket or donated item. Be on the lookout for future emails with Signup Genius links for other opportunities to help. 

Last year’s online catalog and bidding was a huge success. We will open the Auction Website early so you can see all the fabulous items available for bidding. 

It’s a great time to be an Explorer!
