“Con Amore CBA” was the theme of this year’s celebration which directly benefits students of the school by helping to offset tuition costs, and thus ensuring that CBA remains accessible to those who desire a high caliber, college preparatory, Catholic education in the Lasallian tradition.
More than 250 silent auction and 20 live auction items were featured. Live auction items included: a Chocolate Golden Doodle puppy, a trip to Napa Valley, tickets to the play Hamilton, and the PGA tournament at Bethpage; tickets to a Giants football game and lunch with punter Riley Dixon ’11 the day before; a weekend at Saratoga Race track, front row graduation seats and two country mega tickets to five country concerts at the Amphitheater. Also, part of the live auction was “Raise Your Paddle.” During the year, teachers are asked to submit proposals for teaching aids or equipment that will directly benefit the students. This year’s “Raise Your Paddle” live-auction funds went toward funding a pilot program for SAT preparation; an upgrade to the current CBA greenhouse; teaching tools for the physical education department; upgrades to the Robotics program and portable display panels and cases for the Visual Arts Department.
Raffle tickets for a trip to Hawaii were sold, and Andrew Goodwin ‘14 was the lucky winner.
A number of students volunteered, passing out hors d’oeuvres, checking coats and assisting with the live portion of the auction. John Marshall, AFSC ’67 was the emcee and Jim Kirby was the auctioneer.
