The Annual Gala Auction is the greatest single fundraising event undertaken by the school community. All funds raised by the auction go directly into the Charlottesville Catholic School Catholic Education Fund. This fund supports the exceptional educational experience we provide for our students every day, advances academic initiatives and programs, and provides grants for tuition assistance, multi-child family aid, and professional development for faculty & staff. Our fundraising goal this year is $100,000 with any amount exceeding that going to our endowment fund. The event consists of raffles, a silent auction, seated dinner during our exciting live auction, Teacher Wish List fund drive, and and optional speakeasy with casino games! Thanks to the valiant efforts of our parents and the wonderful support of the community, the Gala Auction continues to be a successful event each year which supports and celebrates Charlottesville Catholic School.
