Make plans to attend HGP's Spring Auction on Saturday, May 6, 2017
The Holy Ghost Prep Spring Auction will take place on Saturday, May 6. Last year, 332 people attended this can’t-miss event, so please make plans to join us. Some of the highlights of the Spring Auction include mobile bidding; a tuition raffle (full tuition for 2017-18 school year or $10,000 in cash; $100 per ticket or $200 for 3 tickets); catering by Carlucci’s; cool HGP items; and a wide array of great silent auction items.
In addition, there is a live auction with must-have items such as:
- Authentic Italian dinner prepared by Chef Greg Geruson ’79 (pictured below, photo by Catalano Studio): Due to popular demand last year, two dinners were auctioned off. Don’t miss the opportunity to have HGP’s world-class chef prepare an Italian dinner for eight people in your home.
- Unforgettable vacation to St.Maarten: One-week stay at the Oyster Bay Beach Resort.
- Golf at the Union League: Foursome and complimentary lunch at MacAlester's Dining Room.
