Our 10th Anniversary Gala is not only our largest fundraising event of the year, but also a place for fellowship, where family and friends can share food, drink, dancing, as well as participate in live and silent auctions.  The money raised through this event enables our school to purchase materials for classrooms, school supplies, and provide scholarships for a variety of students.

In August of 2010, St. John the Baptist expanded our preschool — which has been in the community for 40 years — to include Kindergarten. Each year we added an additional grade, and now offer preschool to grade 6.  We are the first school in the Diocese of Harrisburg to open in over 50 years.

You can make a huge impact by helping in the form of a monetary donation or an auction item. By donating silent and live auction items you will help us reach our annual goal to grow St. John the Baptist Catholic School. Consider donating some of the following:

  • Travel Gifts (Airline, Hotel, Bed &Breakfast, Vacation Rentals, Cruises)
  • Home (Flat screen televisions, I Pads, I Pods, Lap Tops, Grills,)
  • Entertainment/Experiences (Theater, concert, or movie tickets, Wine tours, Week of camp, Sporting event tickets)
  • Services (Photography, Spa, Lessons, Home Cleaning Service, Auto-repair)
  • Unique Gifts (Autographed Items, Paintings, Wine Baskets, Landscaping tools, Kitchen Supplies)
  • For kids (Bikes, Scooters, Riding Toys, Sports Equipment, Xbox)

Your contribution makes a significant and meaningful impact on the education of our children. In return for your generosity, our sponsors will be acknowledged before, during and after our fundraiser.  Your company will be featured in our program, on our web-site, in our church bulletin and throughout the night of the event.
