Soirée Invites Coming Home Today!

 

The annual Saint James School Soirée & Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and a great adults-only event to celebrate the awesome community we share while raising money for our school! The event will take place on Saturday, March 28th from 7:00pm – 11:30pm, in what we are calling The Saber’s Den (our school’s gymnasium, transformed for the event). This year’s theme will be 60’s Beach Party! Attendees are welcome to come in their favorite 60’s Beach Party attire (but please know that beach attire is not required to attend).

In keeping with tradition, attendees of the Soirée will have the option to participate in the live and/or silent auctions and purchase raffle tickets for the class baskets.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Saint James School. There will be delicious food from Highland Park Market, a cash bar from Lucky Taco, a hula hoop contest, and – of course – A WHOLE LOT of fun!

Invitations and RSVP cards are being sent home with students this week so please check their folders!

If you would like to volunteer at the event, donate an auction item, or help us solicit donations, please contact parent volunteer chair Erin Daley at erindaley6416@gmail.com. Information on sponsorships can be found here: 2020 Soiree Sponsorship Form

The 2020 Soirée artwork was beautifully designed by Alessandra and Miles Maull (who won this honor at last year’s event).
