SS. Peter and Paul School Auction- November 5, 2016
Each year, SS Peter and Paul Catholic School in Collinsville, IL holds our single biggest fundraiser, the school auction. All proceeds go directly to the school, with some special fundraisers, such as Raise Your Paddle, going to an area of particular need. The 2016 Raise Your Paddle funds went to S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education) materials, one of which is the purchase of Google Chromebooks for students in grades 6-8!
The SS Peter and Paul Catholic School auction is put together annually by school volunteers of the 4th grade class. There are many ways, other than attending, that you can help make this years auction a huge success.
You can view the live auction page here.
