About those Live Auction Items...
here's a "pro tip"
Have you always wanted to bid on one of the delicious dinner parties or trips you hear about in the Live Auction, but thought it was out of your price range? Well, the secret is to strategize with your friends before the auction.
Let’s say the dinner you have your eye on is for eight people. Pick three other couples you’d like to spend the evening with and volunteer to be the bidder for the group. Then determine the maximum you want to spend per couple. The night of the auction, collect bidder numbers from your friends, and when you successfully bid for that delicious dinner, submit all four bidder numbers to the recorder. Voila! You will each be charged for just your portion of the total bid. Enjoy the auction!

Welcome to The Madeleine Round-Up, the 2016 Madeleine School Auction
Saturday, November 5, 2016
The annual Madeleine Auction is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year, helping to keep tuition affordable for our families, and to keep the quality of education high for all students. Simply put, without the auction the Madeleine School would not be what it is today.
The Madeleine Auction is also the biggest (and most fun) social event of the year for our parish and our school. It’s the perfect time to build community, make new friends and to reconnect with people you haven't seen for awhile.
But most of all, it's a time when we can all come together and work on behalf of our most important assets: our children.
