The Auction of Blessings (formerly Banquet of Blessings) is just around the corner! The auction is St. Ben's School's biggest fundraiser of the year. For many years, this fundraiser was held in person as a live auction. That changed in 2020 when gathering in person was not feasible. Since then, the auction has been held virtually over several days. The 2022 Auction of Blessings will once again be held online via Sweeney's Auction Service, but this year we've added a twist! We will get the auction weekend started with an in-person Auction Kick-off party held on Friday, April 29th, from 6:00 - 10:00 p.m. at the Elks Lodge. If you have not made your reservations yet, please make sure to do that before the night of the event. We will NOT be taking reservations at the door. Cost is $25/person and includes a free drink and heavy appetizers and dessert. The Freeport Social Club will provide live music throughout the evening as well. With the help of generous donors, the auction committee was able to put together over 100 AMAZING packages. Ranging from things like learning a skill (sewing) and creative art projects by each class at St. Ben's, to the opportunity to take your family on a wonderful vacation (Hello, sunny Florida!). The committee is confident there is something for everyone in this year's auction! Packages can be previewed starting Monday, April 25th. The actual bidding will open on Friday (29th) morning bright and early at 7:00 a.m. and close on Sunday, May 1 at 7:00 p.m. Feel free to share the auction with friends and family who may not be local but who want to win some great packages and support our school! Remember that every dollar raised goes to funding our wonderful school so St. Ben's can continue to provide an excellent education to our children. We look forward to seeing you at the kick-off! In Friendship, The Auction of Blessings Committee Sarah Harman, Marissa Nordschow, Rhonda Albert, Gabriel Surovy, Alexandra Wicks, Keegan Luzum, Jennifer Kuehner, & Rita Dykstra
