Prince of Peace Irish Auction slated for Jan. 19

CLINTON — Prince of Peace Catholic School is telling people to dress like a movie star during the 16th Annual Irish Dinner Auction.

The 16th Annual Irish Dinner Auction will be Jan. 19.

This year’s theme is “An Irish Night at the Oscars.”

“So if you have some bling in your closet, this is the night for it,” Karen Witt, Development Director of Prince of Peace Schools, said.

More than 100 packages are available for the live and silent auctions. Some of the live auction packages include a pool party, a trip to Milwaukee, a week in a cabin for eight in Wisconsin, a year of FitPro Boot Camp and a 2012 Kate Spade NY Harmony leopard print bag.

The auction booklet, with a complete list of the packages, can be found at the Prince of Peace website, www.prince.pvt.k12.ia.us. People unable to attend the event can call Witt at 242-1663.

The event will begin at 5 p.m. with a social hour and silent auction. The dinner and live auction will begin at 6:30 p.m. Menu choices for the dinner are prime rib and baked potatoes or herb-roasted chicken with garlic mashed potatoes. Complimentary beer and wine will be available until 9 p.m. and a cash bar will be available through the night. Tickets are $40 per person or $400 for a table of 10. Tickets can be purchased by calling Witt or visiting the website.

The dinner will once again be held at the Wild Rose Casino & Resort, 777 Wild Rose Drive. Witt said the casino is a wonderful location and they “love it out there.” Before last year, the auction was held in the school’s gymnasium.

“It was a Herculean effort to do it in our own gym,” Witt said.

Witt added that the Irish dinner auction is a very successful event for the school. She pointed out that as a private school, the tuition does not pay all of their costs, so fundraisers are important.

Witt said the fundraisers receive a lot of community support, with a lot of the parents volunteering.

She felt this is what allows them to typically make their $50,000 goal.

“There's a lot of fellowship that happens there,” Witt said. “It's a very community supported event.”
