Annual Live and Silent Auction

Saturday, March 24, 2017

The auction has been Sacred Heart Academy's signature event since it began in 1991 as an annual fundraiser to make premier Catholic education affordable and attainable for all deserving young women. The auction always boasts a memorable evening with stunning staging, gourmet cuisine, and fine beverages. Guests have the opportunity to bid on and win an astonishing assortment of prizes, gifts, and must-haves of the year in the live and silent auction.

Special thanks to John & Anne Cropp P'18 for their dedicated leadership and enthusiasm as chairs of Auction 2017 - 0070th License to Give! Close to $140,000 was raised to benefit Sacred Heart Academy!


A huge thank you to those who helped with this year's auction. Under the leadership of dedicated chairs David and Kristen Falls, our event was truly “a swell affair with a twenties flair!” As we bask in our success, we are already planning for next year’s auction…if you would like to join the 2015 committee, please contact Maryanne Pisani.

Hands Up for Heart

Hands Up for Heart was once again a highlight during this year's auction, raising nearly $70,000 for need-based scholarships. With a simple hand in the air, guests donated funds to support the Tuition Assistance Program, enabling young women in need of financial assistance the opportunity to attend Sacred Heart. Enjoy the video shown to our guests on Saturday evening. We invite you to join those who have given to this initiative by making a gift here.

"The generous donations of the many individuals that contributed to Hands Up for Heart touch one third of the SHA students.  It warms our hearts that we can have a little impact on shaping the lives of so many girls. " - Anne Cropp
