SMA Great Cash Giveaway

We invite you to help sponsor or attend  “A Night Under the Big Top” Great Cash Giveaway event on Saturday, November 3, 2018. The evening promises to be exciting with the opportunity of winning $10,000. It is a great occasion to gather together as a school and parish community. You will be supporting our school in an important way, while at the same time, experiencing an enjoyable evening.  Reservations for the event will open on September 30, 2018.

The planning stages for St. Martin of Tours Academy’s Annual Great Cash Giveaway Gala is  underway. The gala’s Auction Committee is currently seeking donations of goods or services from local businesses for live and silent auction. For example, season ticket seats to local sporting events, a handmade item that can be treasured by a family, or donating a stay at your timeshare are welcome.

All donors will be mentioned on the school’s website, social media, and event program. We are also accepting sponsorship of the event through gift cards to local restaurants, shops, grocery stores, gas stations, and online shopping sites. Please include printed receipts with gift card donations. All donations are tax deductible.

If you or someone you know would like to donate, please contact Auction Committee Co-Chairs Mitzi Elsten at @, or Teresa Propper at @.

Proceeds from the event will support St. Martin of Tours Academy’s Catholic education, operational expenses, and tuition assistance for students and families in need.

Over 120 people attended the event Saturday, November 4 at the Hilton Mission Valley. While bidding on over 60 live and silent auction items, attendees enjoyed drinks, music and a dinner. The winner of the $10,000 cash giveaway was Judy and Len Vanderbosch, grandparents to Tabitha and Isaac (Class of 2012).

Proceeds contribute to the quality of education we have come to know at St. Martin of Tours Academy. With a variety of ways to make a donation, this fundraiser joins our business, school, and parish communities together.

Student art work was auctioned during the “Live Auction” portion of the evening.

    There were over 60 silent auction items to bid on.

The beautiful “Candy Buffet” was created by the Suzuki Family!
