Discovery Auction: Thank You for Coming!
The 2020 Bootlegger’s Ball was an enormous success! We hosted over 340 attendees for a night of fun and fundraising. Many, many thanks to all of the people who made the event so special: the Auction committee and all of their work in transforming the Knights of Columbus into an amazing Speakeasy, marketing the event, and bringing in new and exciting donations; the families who generously contributed parties, sporting tickets, professional services, and items; the teachers/staff who conceptualized amazing experiences to share with students; the room parents who put together incredible class-wide donations; and all of the families who either participated from the event or bid from home.
All bids are being double checked for accuracy, and final receipts will be sent out soon. If you won an item, you will be contacted on how to retrieve it. Teachers and party hosts will receive the names of the winners and contact you directly about the event.
Thank you again to everyone who helped make this an exceptional evening!
