Save the date for this year's Ascension Blue Tie Auction—Saturday, November 18. Maureen and Walter Healy will be the honorees at this year's fabulous Blue Tie Auction. The Healy's have been Ascension friends and boosters for many years, and we are proud to have them and their family and friends as guests of honor.
The Blue Tie is the best opportunity for everyone in our community to show their support of Ascension School. From current parents and parishioners, to alumni and faculty, this event is truly something that everyone comes together to contribute to. While the event itself lasts only a few hours, it takes hundreds of item donors, volunteers, vendors and staff to pull off this special evening-and it shows! Every detail is planned meticulously to ensure guests have a wonderful time and each item is chosen with care to raise more funds each year for Ascension.
Plan now for a wonderful evening with friends. Tickets are $130 per person, or reserve your table of ten! Don’t have a whole table? Don’t worry! We have reserved a table for parents of each grade. Just indicate your child’s grade, and we will seat you with other parents from your child’s class. It’s a great way to connect and make some new friends!
