          ST. PATRICK’S SPIRIT
N
        ow in its 36th year, the Auction to Benefit Financial Aid is one of the most important
        annual traditions at the Day School. We look forward to carrying this torch into the
        future with a theme that emphasizes the great community spirit we have.

This year’s Auction, GAME ON!, is focused on sports—particularly building the spirit of team-
work, cooperation, and personal achievement—and reinforcing our belief that financial aid is the
shared responsibility of our community. The success of the Auction ultimately depends on the
time, talent, and generosity of our parent volunteers and community contributors.

We hope you will join the team!
