Spartan Safari Auction Success

Spartan Safari Auction Success
John Stewart, jstewart@desmet.org

The 2020 Spartan Safari Auction was a resounding success this year. Official numbers are still being calculated, but it looks like together we raised $650,000!

The Spartan Safari Auction is the culmination of a true team effort. It would not have happened without the extraordinary efforts of everybody involved, but most especially our Auction Chairs, Becky Lane and Melissa Dawson.

Our sincerest gratitude extends to each and every one of you who helped, who attended, and who donated. We deeply appreciate your hard work and generosity in making this event both an incredible success and a celebration of our outstanding De Smet Jesuit community.

In case you missed it - or would like to view it again - enjoy the 2020 Fund-A-Need video, created by Connor Pohl '21.

Thank you again for the many ways you support this school. Both current and future Spartans appreciate your commitment!
