Can't Make It To the Gala? 


There are several ways you can support the Gala and the Crusader Fund without getting dressed up or hiring a babysitter.

  • Order a raffle ticket for a chance to win one 2022-23 tuition scholarship or $5,000 cash.
  • Register for the silent auction and have fun bidding on fabulous items donated by SOSM staff & teachers, Crusader Families, Class projects, parish families, and local businesses.
  • Donate to the Crusader Fund.

Thank you for your generosity! 



How to participate in the Silent Auction

(even if you're not attending the Gala)


You must register to start bidding. It takes less than 5 minutes! 
  1. Visit the auction website and click on the register button (left-hand side)
  2. Make sure to use your cell phone in the phone field if you would like to receive text messages as you bid. 


Bidding starts May 6 and will close on May 13 at 10:00 p.m. Visit the auction website and click on SILENT AUCTION to check out the items available for bidding.
On the bidding site, you can click on ALL ITEMS to search items, and then bid on each item by clicking on it and following the on-screen instructions. You may input/pre-set your maximum bid and then let the system bid for you. If you are outbid, the system will send you a text message.
Once the silent auction closes, you may view all items you have won by clicking on VIEW MY ITEMS. You will also receive a notification 15-20 minutes after bidding ends on May 13, summarizing all items and other donations. 
More details about the silent auction items and the process will be in the Gala Look Book that is being sent home with the oldest student in each family on Friday, May 6.
