About the REACH Auction
Since 1975, REACH– Religious Education A Catholic Heritage auction, dinner, and dance have been coordinated by generous volunteers and dedicated staff.
Funds raised at REACH, the school’s biggest fundraiser offset tuition and operating costs. REACH ensures our legacy of Catholic education in Tacoma since 1983 continues.
REACH is a season of community building– many people working together with a shared commitment. To continue to make the auction a success, we ask for support from parishioners and the broader Tacoma community, but especially from each school family, to support in planning, donating and attending REACH. We are grateful for your generous and selfless commitment.
“Let’s kick the tires and light the fires” for REACH 2020! We are pleased to announce that the St. Patrick Catholic School REACH Auction is on Saturday, March 14, 2020, and we are honored to chair this event. This year’s theme invites you to Come Fly With Us as we celebrate 126 years of Catholic Education and soar beyond our next horizon. Board our flight for an evening including dinner (not your typical airline food!), silent and live auction, and dancing!
The REACH Auction is our community’s primary fundraising event. While we know you get asked to give to many worthwhile causes, and we know you get asked to fund a number of significant initiatives at St. Pat’s, and all of those causes are important, but the REACH Auction allows us to keep offering a Catholic Education that is affordable for all of our students and their families. It allows us to make critical improvements to students’ experiences at St. Patrick Catholic School.
Our fundraising goal for the 2020 REACH Auction is $350,000. This is a tall order and we cannot succeed without your assistance, and we are asking for your help.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will join us on March 14, 2020, when we hit Mach 2 with our hair on fire!
