The Main Event Donations
Each year the Main Event offers a Fund-A-Need tuition assistance donation opportunity within the Live Auction portion of this great gala evening. The 2012 Main Event was blessed with a generous anonymous donor who provided a matching challenge of $150,000+! In other words, the donor agreed to provide a dollar-for-dollar match if we reached a minimum threshold of $150,000. Thank you to the many guests and donors who made this match possible. We are proud to report that we far exceeded that threshold, and this year's Main Event Auction raised a net total of $622,353 for tuition assistance for our Men of Moeller!
Looking ahead to our "Evening in Tuscany," it is now time to start collecting items for the silent and live auction portion of the Main Event. This portion of the evening has the potential of not only bringing in more than $120,000 for the Men of Moeller, it also provides the evening with a TON of fun and excitement as once-in-a-lifetime items go up for bid. That's where you come in....please help us put together packages that are pure profit for Moeller High School. Your donation of sports tickets, electronices, logo items - make this happen. Cash donations are always welcome to purchase auction gifts to offset the cost of the event. See our 2013 wish list below. If you have any leads/connections for wish list items, please email LHoelker@Moeller.org or call Louise at 513-791-1680 ext. 1304.
