Annual Dinner Auction

For more than 100 years, Assumption Catholic School has provided a challenging academic curriculum to students starting from our early childhood program through our eighth-grade classrooms. Each year we hold a Gala Dinner Auction to directly benefit all students of our day school and PSR programs through tuition assistance, faculty development, student activities and technology enhancements. These auction proceeds are vital to our ability to help our students meet the academic and spiritual challenges of their future. 

We know that a successful auction is not possible without the remarkable support and backing of our Assumption community. CLICK HERE for Sponsorship Opportunities and Check us out on Facebook

This year's Gala is almost here! Dust off your prom dress and dig out that vintage bow tie, Assumption is getting ready to celebrate the 2023 Gala: Prom through the Decades, Saturday, April 22! Join us for an exciting evening of music, dancing, dinner, drinks, raffles, games, and plenty of chances to win unique live and silent auction items. Tickets are on sale now! Prom attire welcome, but not needed to attend! 

Doors open and cocktails will be served at 6:30 p.m. This year's signature drink is sponsored by our wonderful friends at El Tio Pepe and is sure to be a hit! Dinner is provided by Russo’s Catering and will be promptly served at 7 p.m., and the live auction begins at 7:45 p.m. A brand new electric ICON i40L Caribbean Blue, four-person golf cart courtesy of STL Custom Cartz will be raffled off at 9 p.m., and everyone goes home with a gift bag of favors.

Assumption Parishioner John Grabowski will be serving as the Gala Auctioneer for the evening. A few of the popular auction items featured at the event include:

  • Autographed jersey of our very own Assumption School alumni Josh Sargent, professional soccer player and starter in the 2022 FIFA World Cup game

  • Dinner with O'Fallon Mayor Bill Hennessy at The Corner Pub and Grill

  • A variety of autographed baseball memorabilia generously donated by Ken Behlmann, retired owner of Behlmann Buick GMC

  • And so much more! 

Donations are being accepted and can be dropped off at the Gala table downstairs in the pre-function area of the Parish Hall on Palm Sunday, April 2, after Mass (8 a.m., 10 a.m. and noon) or by making other arrangements. This year’s Fund the Need campaign is calling for the installation of 20 additional school security cameras. Sponsorships and business advertisements in the Gala souvenir booklet also are available and offer great exposure and publicity to any business or organization. Anyone interested in assisting with our fundraising efforts, should contact Mindy Saxbury or Gina Nelson at

But that’s not all! As a tribute to you, we want to highlight our beautiful Assumption families by featuring your prom photos at the event! Just take a photo of your prom photo and email it to no later than April 1. No joke! These photos are priceless and are sure to add historical décor to the glitzy Gala atmosphere. 

Be sure to join us for this amazing 10th anniversary celebration which serves as the largest Assumption School fundraiser of the year. We can't wait to see you there! If you need any additional information, please contact us at 636-240-4474.
