Roaring into the 20's Auction/Gala

Our guests enjoyed a beautiful evening of celebrating faith and education for Corpus Christi Catholic School! The gym and Prefontaine Hall grounds were magically transformed into a dazzling event space reminiscent of the golden 20’s era. The incredible decor, silent, big board and live auction, delicious meal, and the ‘Over the Moon’ photo booth were the Cat’s Meow! To you-all the parent volunteers, school faculty and staff- that worked tirelessly behind the scenes and during the event- please accept our heartfelt gratitude and thanks! This year’s ‘Roaring into the 20’s’ Auction Gala was a success because of your unwavering support! THANK YOU!!
