Dear Friend of Saint Peter School,


At Saint Peter School we pride ourselves on a legacy of guiding and supporting students as they grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Dedicated to promoting Catholic values, high standards, and the success of each student, Saint Peter's prepares its students to think critically and creatively and to act compassionately and responsibly. Our graduates are well prepared to lead and serve!


The coronavirus crisis has challenged Saint Peter's fundraising efforts while rendering them more important than ever. This year marks the Saint Peter's 18th Annual Dare to Dream Re-imagined Virtual Gala & Auction. The week-long virtual event begins on Saturday, March 27, 2021. Using the fundraising platform GiveSmart, the week-long virtual auction will allow "attendees" to bid on items using their computers or smartphones. Each day new items were made available to encourage regular and frequent visits to the site.


As a valued and respected business member in our community, we rely on support from generous friends like you. We are looking for business sponsors and items to auction off. A significant portion of the proceeds will be achieved through the virtual auction, which includes donations from individuals and businesses such as yours. Donations may be in the form of actual merchandise, certificates, or services. All donations are tax-deductible. Your donation will be acknowledged at the Gala and school publications. Part of the proceeds from this event goes directly to Saint Peter School Annual Fund, which directly benefits our students. Every donation to Saint Peter is invaluable and welcome!


An auction committee member will be happy to pick up your donation at your convenience or you may mail or drop off your donation to:
