Hello Freshmen Parents, 

Antonian’s goal of enhancing the learning environment for our students and bettering the quality of Catholic education your child receives is funded in part through the Annual Heritage Gala. Although the community cannot come together in person for this year’s 11th Annual Heritage Gala, we have reimagined our signature fundraising event and tried to replicate our program through a series of events throughout the year to ensure everyone still has the opportunity to participate in fundraising elements safely from the comfort of their own home.  

Antonian will host an online silent auction from November 22 to December 6 in hopes of raising much-needed funding for classroom cameras to facilitate hybrid (remote and in person) learning. While Antonian already purchased and installed these cameras so that we could open our classrooms on August 17, 2020, the debt of $136,543 remains for their purchase. 

We ask each class to donate a themed basket for the auction. The Freshmen basket theme is “Gourmet Wine and Dine.” The following items are suggestions, but feel free to donate anything you feel can add to the theme: wine, wine glasses, wine glass charms, gift cards to a wine store, Godiva chocolates and truffles, smoked salmon, camembert cheese, or a cheese tray.     

Sending a monetary contribution is also an option and we will be happy to purchase “Gourmet Wine and Dine” theme items. Items should be delivered or mailed to Antonian no later than November 1. Also, please fill out a donation form along with your donation (click here to download). 

If you have any questions, please contact Melinda Perritano at m.perritano@antonian.org. Thank you in advance for your support!
