The 2016 edition of a Cardinal Christmas Auction and Dinner on December 3rd, was the most successful in the event’s 29-year history. Thanks to the tireless work, generosity and dedication of so many, especially those in the St. Charles Mothers Club, the lives of many St. Charles students will be significantly changed through the academic and need-based financial assistance generated Saturday evening.

The 2016 Cardinal Christmas Auction will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, starting at 6 p.m. in the Robert C. Walter Student Commons. The evening includes dinner, musical entertainment by the St. Charles Jazz Band, bidding on over 200 silent auction items, bidding on 8 to 10 big-ticket live auction items, and the opportunity to change the lives of St. Charles students through academic and need-based financial assistance. The Mothers Club relies on the support of the many Friends of St. Charles, current families, alumni, and local businesses, to make this night a success.

The Cardinal Christmas auction, which always features great live and silent auction items, has an ESPECIALLY enticing item being offered this year: A memorable stay in a 5-bedroom home located in the medieval Italian village of Navelli (in the Abruzzo region), about one hour and forty-five minutes from Rome and forty-five minutes from the Adriatic Sea and its beaches. The package will also include a couple of nights in Rome!
