Save Saturday, Nov. 2, for Annual Kennedy Auction!


Planning has already been underway for the 32nd Annual Auction, which is Kennedy’s oldest and most important fundraiser of the year. It takes place on Saturday, Nov. 2 this year.

We hope for a great outcome and the important financial boost it brings to the school’s fiscal health and viability. To ensure the Auction’s success, we ask the Kennedy Community to donate, solicit or financially underwrite, to the best of their family’s ability, items which can be offered at either the Live or Silent Auction being held.

Attendance is also a great way to provide financial support to the school while purchasing useful items and gifts at a reasonable price. Students can also offer assistance and receive credit towards their service hours.

For the Kennedy Community, the Auction offers a wonderful night out with dinner, an opportunity to socialize and a chance to support a most valuable gift to your child – a Catholic education.

Please take a moment to view the items on our 2013 Wish List below,  and then use the Item Donation Form 2013 to pledge the gift of a good or service, or it’s underwriting.

Thank you in advance for your help with Auction 2013!
