Mothers and Friends Dinner Auction

(updated August 17, 2020)

Recognizing the immediate priorities of our community at this time in relation to COVID-19, the Mothers and Friends Auction Committee will host A Knight Under the Big Top as a virtual live auction August 23, 2020, through August 29, 2020.  As always, this event provides an opportunity to raise funds that are vital to the success of Mater Dei Catholic High School.

The virtual live auction is open to everyone (not only guests who previously submitted reservations).

All those interested in participating in online bidding must register via the virtual live auction website.  (Select the “Sign In or Register” option located at the top right.)
