32nd Annual STARS Gala Auction: March 25, 2017
The 2017 STARS Gala Auction
The 32nd Annual STARS Gala Auction will be held on March 25, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue with an anticipated 600 guests. As a donor, you know you are helping provide a life-changing education and abundant opportunities to more than 930 students in grades six through 12 and from 35 residential communities, both to those whose families can provide their tuition and to those who require tuition assistance.
Today we ask you to become a sponsor or donate an item, a service or event underwriting funds by January 16, 2017. As a sponsor and/or donor, you (or your company) will receive valuable benefits as outlined in the documents linked to the right of your screen. Eastside Catholic receives no funding from state and local taxes and is a non-profit charitable organization, therefore, your donation is potentially tax deductible. Thank you for giving us your heartfelt consideration.
Our three Touchstones—Academic Excellence, Relationships and Servant Leadership are lived out each day on the Eastside Catholic School campus and elsewhere. Last year alone, many middle school and high school student groups collected donations for local organizations, students travelled on mission trips serving those in need and students won regional and state competitions. However, our school community is so much more than winning competitions—it’s about inviting the boys’ basketball team manager, a senior in the Options Program for students with disabilities, to suit up for the Senior Night game and encouraging him to take shots at the net until he scored two points to the sound of a roaring crowd. It’s about groups such as Kind Club and United Nations Foundation’s Girl Up Club promoting positive relationships and girls’ education. And it’s about the daily schoolwide announcements ending with the statement, “remember Crusaders to take care of each other.” All of these opportunities, and many more, are available to every Eastside Catholic student and made possible when our community shows its overwhelming support for our students through the STARS Gala Auction.
