2016 Auction

Notre Dame High School thanks you for your generous gifts to our 2016 Annual Auction. Your commitment to helping the advancement of our mission is truly a blessing.

The goal of the Annual Auction is to continue to make a difference by enhancing the programs that are offered to our students and teachers. This year we raised $64,000 and with the help of donations from supporers such as you, we will continue to achieve our goals.

Thank you again for your generous support of our efforts. We look forward to celebrating our 25th year with you next October.


The Notre Dame Signature Auction Event is a fun-filled evening which will be held at The Stone Terrace in Hamilton, New Jersey!  The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with a Silent Auction and Gaming while enjoying a lavish cocktail/dinner reception, Live Auction at 8:00 pm and Tuition Raffle drawing at 8:30 pm.  Silent auction will end at 9:30 pm but the fun doesn't end there, we will have a DJ, dancing and a dessert reception until the evening ends at 10:00 pm! 

We are going to try something different this year.  Since we will not be having a formal sit down dinner there is no need to put together a table.  This year our event will be more like a lavish cocktail reception with mixed seating options scattered throughout the venue.  Gaming, food and spirited auction bidding will go on throughout the evening. So get ready to ANTE UP!!! It's going to be a great evening!

Using your own Smartphone, you can electronically bid on baskets, and one of a kind Notre Dame experiences, such as First Choice Field Trip for your son or daughter or use of our luxury box at Homecoming.  Participate in games of chance such as our ever popular "Pot of Gold" and "Stock your Bar" while socializing with members of the Notre Dame Community.
