Class Baskets

Spartan Safari Graphic for Gala & Auction 2020

Our goal is for each grade level to contribute themed baskets to be auctioned on March 7, 2020 at the Spartan Safari Gala and Auction. We hope each family will generously donate in some way.  

1.      Donate item(s) for ANY class basket!  Watch for Donut Drop-Off Days or send to your son’s homeroom with last name and the approximate value of the item(s) attached. 

2.      Donate money for the Auction Committee to purchase items needed for the class baskets.  Send cash/check to homeroom in an envelope clearly marked “Auction Class Baskets” with last name and class.  Checks Payable to De Smet Jesuit, with ‘Auction Class Basket’ in the memo line.  OR, you may donate directly online by filling out the donation form below.

3.      Have a family member, business, or Friend of De Smet donate item(s)—any of them!  (Services, items, gift cards, etc.) We’ll put it all to good use!!

We're making it easy! Drop off dates for Items/Gift Cards are Friday mornings October 19th, November 9th, and December 10th in the Emerson Lobby. The first 75 students to drop off an item will enjoy a donut before school.
