Holiday Auction & Gala
November 20, 2021 at 5pm
We had a very successful 2020 virtual event! This year we will have a virtual Silent Auction that will run from Monday, November 15th through Saturday, November 20th. Bidding will be done using our One Cause/BidPal software that we used last year. However, we plan to hold our Live Auction as an in-person event even though it will be modified to follow the current health guidelines. Everyone who registers and bids on Silent and/or attends the Live Auction with dinner, drinks, and dancing are supporting our school and the advancement of Catholic education. The Development Team, Auction & Gala Auction Leads, volunteers, and staff work very hard to create this event!
Many thanks to our Auction & Gala sponsors who helped offset the costs of this event. We also thank and greatly appreciate all of the businesses who generously donated goods and/or services.
Please patronize these businesses and let them know you saw their sponsorship at the SMS Auction & Gala.
More information will be posted as details become available. So, please check back often.

Guys and gals! Have you ever wanted to legally drive as fast as a NASCAR driver? Well here is your chance! NASCAR Racing Experience, 2-Night Stay for 2. This Experience Includes:
• NASCAR car racing experience at your choice of participating locations throughout the contiguous U.S.
• 2-night stay in a standard guest room at a Hyatt Place, Hampton Inn, or comparable hotel
This is a driving experience like no other racing experience or racing school — an experience you will never forget!
The NASCAR Racing Experience:
Enjoy a package for two that provides classroom training AND the ability to drive real NASCAR Monster Energy Cup cars on a professional superspeedway track during one 8-minute racing session per driver.
There is no lead car to follow and no instructor riding with you. Personal racing instructors communicate with you using 2-way radio racing electronics, as well as being your spotter, coaching you during the racing sessions, and helping you achieve fast speeds safely. Passing is allowed — pass the slower cars as you catch them, putting the pedal to the metal and seeing if you have what it takes to be a NASCAR driver! For more detailed information, tracks and dates, etc., please go to the online description.
