DEADLINE EXTENDED: Auction Donation, Saintly Spot, and Corporate Sponsor and Ad Deadline for our Shine Bright - Light Up the Night Gala - this year's DDA
The Dinner Dance Auction Countdown is ON.
On Saturday, March 12, 2022, All Saints will be holding its biggest party and largest fundraising event of the school year - our Shine Bright - Light Up the Night Gala. We are so excited to return to an in person event where we can come together, have fun, and support All Saints Catholic Academy and our students.
First of all ~ Have you Saved the Date? Are you planning on coming? The DDA is for everyone!! The comment that we hear from brand new (and seasoned) attendees over and over is how much fun they had. So, clear your calendar. Talk to your friends. Secure the baby sitter. The team can even seat you with families from your student's grade level. You need to be there!
There are many ways in which you can participate and support the success of this year's auction. Please take a close look at the following options, as there are important deadlines coming up in January.
1. Auction Donation
Please consider donating an item to this year's auction. You will receive credit toward your Family Fundraising Obligation (FFO) up to $500 for this school year for the amount your item sells for at the auction. Need some ideas? Best sellers are vacation getaways, golf outings and outdoor adventures, just to name a few. Have questions? Contact the DDA team at email@example.com.
Click here for the Auction Donation Form. The form and item donations are due no later than Friday, January 21, 2022.
2. Cash Donation
A cash donation will help the DDA committee to supplement auction items and create more desirable packages. The cash amount (up to $500) directly offsets your Family Fundraising Obligation (FFO). You can make this payment via your FACTS account (if your account is set to auto pay), cash, or check payable to ASCA.
Click here for the Cash Donation Form. The form and your payment is due no later than Friday, January 14, 2022.
3. Tuition Credit Raffle
It you purchase a ticket for the Tuition Credit Raffle, you could be the lucky winner of a $5,000 tuition credit for the 2022-2023 school year. Tickets are $100 each, and only 150 total tickets will be sold.
Please note the following date change: Any Tuition Credit Raffle ticket purchased on or before Monday, January 31, 2022 will be entered in an Early Bird Drawing which will be held during Catholic Schools Week (1st week of February). The winner of the Early Bird Drawing will receive a Fees and Forms credit toward their 2022-2023 student fees, currently valued at up to $390. You don't want to leave that opportunity on the table.
Tickets are also sold before and after mass each week. If you don't plan on coming to Mass, you are welcome to stop by the DDA table to purchase a ticket (and meet team members) when you are dropping off your student on Mass days (most Fridays).
Click here for the Tuition Credit Raffle Form that you can also fill out and return to school.
The winner of the $5,000 tuition credit will be drawn during the Shine Bright ~ Light Up the Night Gala on Saturday, March 12th, 2022. Please note that Tuition Credit Raffle Ticket purchases do not count toward the FFO.
4. 50/50 Raffle
This is another very popular way to support the DDA, and win some nice cool cash! The lucky winner will take 50% of the pot, with the other 50% going straight to ASCA for this year's 'Fund a Need' initiative (more details coming soon). 50/50 raffle tickets are available now, and are sold before and after mass each week. Please note that 50/50 Ticket purchases do not count toward the FFO.
5. Saintly Spot Ad
Celebrate the special moments in your child’s life: their graduation, their First Communion, their sports team or scout troop, or any other special day or event. Ads are only $50, and families can participate together in one ad recognizing their Saints. Saintly Spot Ads will be part of the DDA Auction Catalog, and will also be displayed on the school TV in the 1st Floor Hallway.
