Main Event 2019
Saturday, October 19, 2019
For 23 years, The Main Event Silent Auction and Dinner has brought together many people who have one goal: to raise money for our children’s school so that it can continue to nurture their minds and spirit. Continued cuts to private schools have made fundraising efforts like The Main Event all the more important. Your participation in The Main Event, as well as your generous donations and sponsorships, will help our teachers, and continually update St. Matthew School’s curriculum, facilities and programs.
Because you make education a priority, St. Matthew School children have a stronger foundation and better understanding of how to live a life of value and contribution. We would be honored by your attendance and offer several opportunities for sponsorship and advertising on social media and on this website. You may purchase tickets, become a sponsor, or donate auction items by clicking on the links at the top of this page.
In the past, we’ve had each class create a themed basket or package for the silent auction during the first two months of school. Every family was asked to contribute an item, a service, or a monetary donation that became one, large silent auction donation. This year, we’re changing things up!
Follow this link to the Official 2019 St. Matthew Main Event Amazon Wishlist. There are a wide variety of items and price points to encourage as many families as possible to contribute to this amazing cause. Again, we will not be asking that you create class baskets this year, so please take advantage of these Black Friday sales days on many of the items on our list. All items on the registry will become bid packages at The Main Event in October, either as a standalone donation or as part of a larger, themed bundle. And all to help us raise the additional funds needed for the school renovations already underway!
Please consider grabbing one, two, TEN items – or maybe joining up with other families to choose a larger item!
As always, Amazon Prime shipping is free and you can either ship the item to your home or directly to the Main Event fundraising committee address on file – no need for Friday morning donation transportation this fall! Your name will appear on the receipt for us to properly credit your generous donation.
Thank you again for your continued support of this incredible event.
