About Bid 4 The Kids
In its 16th year, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School’s largest fundraiser is the annual Bid 4 the Kids Auction which strengthens our school community through a fun-filled evening of fellowship and the opportunity to bid on fantastic silent, Insta buys, and live auction items. Generous auction donations from community members, businesses, parish, and school families provide financial support that enhances every aspect of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School to provide an excellent environment for educating our children. The total focus of the auction is fulfilling the needs of our school by helping financially support programs, curriculum, fun activities, and providing a healthy and safe environment for our children.
Our annual auction will be held on Saturday, February 5th, 2022. We would love to have your support again this year by attending the event or donating in any which way you can! We work so hard to make this successful for everyone. You make all the difference for SFA!

AM I GOING TO BE PRESSURED TO BUY SOMETHING? NO! Just coming to the event helps financially, promise. And more importantly, you will leave having a fun night with dinner, live music, and time with new & old friends. We do however want you to know that the price range of items is wide with many affordable items.
