2024 Golden Gael-a Auction

Live Auction Preview

Let's Raise the Roof!

We are thrilled to announce the return of our Spring Auction, and we cordially invite you to mark your calendar for the Hollywood Golden Gael-a on Saturday, April 13th, 2024 at St. Mary's Cultural Center. St. Michael has been a beloved home to numerous children, staff members, and families. However, we urgently need a new roof, and we have set an ambitious target of raising over $150,000 for our school's roofing project through this auction.
 
We need your help to make this goal a reality. Every contribution counts, and we would be honored to have your support. We offer a variety of sponsorship and advertising opportunities, donation requests, and volunteer positions to those who wish to contribute to our cause. By supporting this auction, you can help ensure that St. Michael remains a safe and secure learning environment for years to come.
 
Your generosity can significantly impact the lives of our students and staff. We warmly invite you to be part of this inspiring initiative and help us achieve our fundraising goal. Join us in this noble cause and help us create a better future for our community.

Please know that the night will be so much more than just entertainment. We aim to raise $150,000 for our school's roofing project, and we need your support to make this happen. Through silent auctions, live auctions, raffles, and games throughout the night, we are sure to reach our goal.
