Coming together is what Jesuit does best and this Auction is no exception. We are honored to be co-chairs of the JHS Auction this year. The two words that we have said thousands of times these past few months are "thank you.” The frequency in which we say them does not diminish our sincerity. To the dozens of people who worked tirelessly to make phone calls, write letters, input data, and decorate in addition to the countless other jobs, you have our deepest gratitude. We are thankful to our generous sponsors and every person who contributed to the success of this evening. The committee chairs and especially, Ann Smith Palenchar, our incredible leader, deserve our sincere appreciation. We are humbled by your commitment.
At this year’s Auction, in style, we continued to honor Jesuit’s 60th anniversary and our beloved President John Gladstone. With the enthusiasm of our guests it is no wonder we had another record-breaking year. During the night of the event we raised $1,047,000 and through pre-committed gifts and multi-year pledges our special appeal was elevated by an additional $1.6 million. Our grand total is $2.7 million! Thank you for your dedication to Jesuit and your commitment to the future of this school and its students. We are grateful for your generosity and support.
