PERU — St. Bede Academy will hold its annual auction on April 26. Each year the Auction Gala raises money to help offset the cost of tuition for St. Bede Academy students.

A live and silent auction will take place. Live auction items include trips to Greece, Barbados, Panama and Antigua, various sporting events and many St. Bede specialty items.

“Wonderful Items provided by our donors and our generous guests dedicated to “funding the gap” make the annual event a success,” said Bonnie Prokup, auction coordinator.

Last year’s auction netted $194,000. The goal this year is $200,000 to help fund the gap of the tuition at St. Bede Academy. Fundraising events are held year-round to assist the cost of tuition.

The St. Bede Academy auction is held at St. Bede with an attendance of more than 300 guests. Tickets are still available and includes full bar, appetizers, dinner, dessert, coffee bar and entertainment including a band and dancing following the auction. A complete listing of auction items can be found on at www.st-bede.com.
