Holy Trinity Auction
18th Annual Auction
Save the Date! This year’s Auction, themed Adventures in Candyland will take place Friday, November 3, 2017 at the Airport Hyatt.
Have some fun and join us on this Candy Land adventure! This year's Auction is sure to be another success, full of celebration and adventures as our parents and HTS community work together to raise funds for Holy Trinity School.
What is the Auction?
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.
Past 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.
The proceeds from our Auction represent a significant component of the annual operating budget of our elementary school. Since its inception as a fundraiser seventeen years ago, this event has generated approximately $570,000. The evening consists of Live and Silent Auctions, a Chinese Auction, and assorted raffles, as well as appetizers and dinner for the attendees. All of the items auctioned are donated by businesses in our surrounding communities and by our school families.
Holy Trinity Catholic School provides a faith-based elementary education for students in preschool through eighth grade. Currently, our 438 enrolled students live in the neighboring communities of Robinson Township, North Fayette Township, Moon Township, Findlay Township, Coraopolis, Imperial, McDonald, Oakdale, Green Tree, Crafton, Scott Township, and the City of Pittsburgh.
