St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School’s Auction and Gala
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the SVdP Auction and Gala?
The SVdP Auction and Gala is a fundraising event hosted by the PTO on February 11, 2017. Auction and Gala is the biggest social event of the school year, and the PTO’s most important fundraiser. This event is filled with dinner, dancing, a casino and auction (with both live and online items). For new families, the Auction is a great way to meet other parents.
Are you new to SVdP and don’t know many families/parents?
The Auction and Gala is an excellent way to get to know more families/parents at SVdP. In addition, when you purchase tickets you can indicate the grade level of your student(s), the PTO will aid you in sitting at a table with other families/parents in those grades. Many long lasting friendships have been made at past SVdP Galas.
Where is the Gala this year?
The Citadel is just 15 minutes from the school off 288 South and Airport Blvd. For more information about the venue click here.
How do I purchase tickets and how much do they cost?
Ticket prices vary, but start at $175 for general admission tickets. Or you can underwrite a designated table of 10 starting at $2,500. For more information about tickets click here.
Where does the Auction money go?
Proceeds from the Gala benefit special projects around campus. Funds from previous events have been earmarked for things like playground equipment, the Tiger Patio, the scoreboard, the Adopt a Student Program, and new technology.
How will the auction work?
We open our online auction for bidding the day of the event. You must be present to bid on live auction items.
The BidPal systems will text you when you have been outbid if you allow that feature. The auction will end at 10:00 PM that evening, and if you are present, you are encouraged to take your items with you. Checkout is easy with BidPal. You can email yourself a receipt through the app. To register for BidPal click here.
I can’t attend the auction, but can I still bid on items?
