What is the Gala?
The St. Katharine Drexel School Gala & Auction is an evening dedicated to our biggest fundraising effort of the year. The evening consists of cocktails, dinner and silent and live auctions. Silent Auction baskets range in value and offer everyone an opportunity to place a winning bid. Live Auction items include unique crafts made by each grade, teacher experiences, exclusive sporting event tickets, dining with our pastors, and naming the drive outside of the school as you wish! We also have raffle tickets for our Grand Prize, chance to win a Beer Tower and a 50/50 cash prize.
Where is the Gala?
The 2019 Gala will be held at the Southampton Room, located at 2980 Southampton Road, Philadelphia, PA. The event is from 7-11pm, with the welcome registration starting at 6:30. The Silent Auction commences at 7pm and tables will close every 15 minutes starting at 7:45pm sharp! The Live Auction opens at 9pm!
What is this year's Grand Prize?
