Thank you for your support of our 2018 auction!  We are so grateful to our O'Hara community, once again, for the tremendous support and generosity shown to our school. This year's annual auction event, O'Hara Open, was a successful and fun night! The  auction is our largest fundraiser and we depend on these funds to help support our school in many ways. 
Thank you to our auction chairs, Kate & Kyle Hudson, for their dedication and leadership in planning & executing a wonderful night of generosity and love for our school.  An event of this size takes amazing volunteer power...to all of our committee chairs, volunteers and staff...THANK YOU!! The time and energy you all put forward is fantastic. To all of our sponsors and donors who so generously gave to our event, thank you...our auction simply wouldn't happen without you!
We are thrilled to share with you that our appeals brought in a combined $99,750!
Scholarships: $52,100
Art Room Remodel: $47,650
Missed the appeals on Auction Night, or weren't able to attend? If you would like to donate to one of our 2018 Raise Your Paddle categories, our  donation page  is open for a few more weeks!
The kind support we receive is an inspiring and overwhelming reassurance that we continue to be blessed with a community of supporters who believe in what we are doing at O'Hara. You support our mission of providing the best possible Catholic education that we can in a nurturing, educational environment; thank you. 
The love and support this community has for O'Hara Catholic School was shown  Saturday  night through the generosity of all who attended and raised their bid cards. We are eternally grateful and so very blessed! 

With sincere gratitude,

Fr. Ron Nelson, School Pastor
Mrs. Tammy Conway, Principal
Mrs. Michelle Meador, Director of Advancement
