Annual Live and Silent Auction

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.

Hands Up for Heart

Hands Up for Heart is the most magnificent segment of our Auction! During the live auction, we stop the bidding to raise vital funds for our Tuition Assistance Program. As part of president Sr. Sheila’s vision, all students who qualify academically, regardless of their ability to pay, should be able to attend the Academy. To donate to Hands Up for Heart, please click here.
