Auction & Gala

Snowballs & Highballs

March 4, 2023

We’re gearing up for “Snowballs & Highballs,” our aprés-(insert favorite snow activity here)-themed Auction scheduled for March 4, 2023! Dig out your brightest ski jacket and comfiest snow boots and prepare to join fellow OLG parents and community members alike in a fantastic evening of off-piste shenanigans.

Our Lady of Guadalupe School Auction & Dinner is the largest fundraiser of the year, making it among the most significant contributors to the school’s operating budget. The Auction is sponsored and supported by the Parent Organization, OLG Parish, School Commission, parents, students, staff, and our surrounding community and businesses.

glassybaby is Back!

To support and commemorate our 2023 aprés-themed Auction, we’re working with Seattle-based glassybaby to create a limited number of votive holders, splashers, and drinkers that match our Auction color scheme!

  • “celebrate” — a hand-blown, snow-white candle holder (40)
  • “sparkling water” — a light sky blue glass drinker (40)
  • “steel blue rocker” — a lowball drinking glass (20)

Note: glassybabys will be made available for purchase and delivered in November for $100 each. Unlike our inaugural glassybabys offered in 2020, these are unetched, making them the perfect gift for family and friends beyond our OLG community. To reserve your glassybaby in advance, add your name to our pre-sale list at School Supply Drop-Off Night or e-mail hilary.j.reeves@gmail.com.
