Do I have to spend a lot of money?
How much money you spend is entirely up to you. There will be items in a variety of price ranges, inexpensive drawing tickets (suggested donation only) to win excellent prizes, parties you can sign up to attend, games that will give you chances to win cash, a variety of Silent Auction goods and services, all the way up to parties you can purchase as a group, if you choose, and classroom projects (always popular) in the Live Auction. Remember the money you spend goes directly to support the amazing programs at St. Elizabeth’s School.

What are Community Builders?
