What an amazing night! Thanks to everyone that donated their time and efforts for St. Leo. Looking forward to next year!

We were snapped! Check out the pictures here.


Hello Awesome St Leo Community,


Another silent auction has come and gone.  It was fantastic.  It takes an immense amount of people to put this auction on.  Some people take on big jobs, some people simply pinch hit where required - but it is a cast of thousands that gets it all done.


Below is the list of people who took on any or many of the following tasks - organized the event, engaged the Maple Leaf House and auction house, sold tickets, collected ticket money, solicited many many donations, set up, tore down, delivered tables, planned games, ran the prize wheel, ran the 50/50 draw, ran the prize board, designed the tickets or the poster, reached out to the media, ran errands and/or took tickets at the door.


Michelle Nolden Szarka, Brandi Ward, Tania Zoldak, Lucy Dorgan, Kim Daniel, Andrea Larsen , Stephanie Naval, Nikki Dettbarn, Jackie McGrath, Carey Burleigh, Tonya Perri, Linsey Raposo, Chantelle Nakhooda, Lina Dhingra, Blair Larsen, Chris Szarka, John Zarand, Bobby Raposo, Mary Jo Janzen


Warmest thanks to all of you.


A special thanks to DJ Valentine - aka Nikki Dettbarn - and her assistant Jackie McGrath for entertaining us throughout the evening and making it a super fun night.

What is a Silent Auction?
Local businesses donate items, gift certificates and services to the school to be put up for auction. People bid on the items and this money goes to the school. Everybody wins– the businesses get advertising, St. Leo makes money for resources and those who attend the auction get fabulous deals on everything from summer camps, to sports items to restaurant gift certificates. For example if an auction item is valued at $100.00 the opening bid is usually around $40.00. People continue to bid throughout the evening until the item reaches it’s value but more often the bidding stops when the item is well below value! This means you can get savings on these items of up to 60%. Items are paid for at the end of the evening by cash or credit card and taken home with you.
