Saturday, March 2: Come to the “Growing Great Kids” Auction and Gala!

Don’t miss the best celebration of the year!  Mark your calendar, gather fellow alumni, and RSVP for the annual “Growing Great Kids” Auction and Gala (http://assumption.maestroweb.com), the largest fundraiser for Assumption Catholic School.  Last year’s event sold out, so reserve your spot and table today.

This festive evening begins with a silent auction featuring items donated by friends of Assumption and local businesses, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.  The event then moves into the ballroom for a seated dinner, live auction, dessert dash, and dancing.

If you’ve attended, you know this is one of the most anticipated nights of the year, with over 250 parents, parishioners, and community members who come together to support our school and Catholic education in Whatcom County.  If you’ve never attended as an alum, you are warmly invited this year!
