Please join us for this year’s auction: “Speakeasy Soiree” at the New York Academy of Medicine.

The annual auction is the school’s largest fundraising event of the year. This fundraiser will consist of an online auction (2/28 – 3/6) culminating with a cocktail party and silent auction on Saturday, March 9, 2019

Proceeds from this event will help to answer the “Call to Action” and provide the necessary funds to continue improvements to both campuses.  The auction has a rich history of raising pivotal funds that have transformed the School of Blessed Sacrament including a new library, computer lab, science lab and more.  

Planning for the auction is in full swing and we need your help to make this event a success.  Check out the information below for more details.
