WINGS AUCTION 2020

"And if you threw a virtual party..." 

 

On March 26, President Jim Kubacki announced that we had to "interrupt our regularly scheduled program" and transition the Wings Auction from our traditional event at St. Edward High School to our first-ever virtual Wings Auction. While there were challenges, the vision was clear... Achieve our budgeted goal of $600,000 in net dollars for our Edsmen and our Scholarship and Financial Aid Programs for the 2019-2020 fiscal year, as these funds are crucial to our Holy Cross Mission. 

 

In true Eagle fashion, the St. Ed's Community rallied, and not only did we surpass our goal, the ratings for Wings 2020 ~ Classic TV Returns were Dy-No-Mite!!
