Dear OLL Families and Friends,
We are thrilled to announce the 50th Annual Our Lady of the Lake School Auction, taking place on February 10, 2024. Prepare to "Boot Scoot & Boogie" the night away as we celebrate and raise funds as a community. This year’s theme is the “Boots and Bling Ball”, a western experience. Join us at the Oregon Golf Club for an evening filled with excitement. Evening line-up includes a silent auction and happy hour, followed by a formal sit-down dinner and live auction.
Our PreK-8th grade school, is comprised of over 280 students, and relies entirely on the support from our parish, tuition payments, and Parent Association fundraising efforts.
Our school’s mission is to provide a high-quality Catholic education to our children. The OLL Parent Associations fundraising efforts help achieve this mission. This year that requirement has increased to $250,000. The School Auction is our most critical fundraising source to meet this goal. The funds we raise go directly to the schools operating budget and helps support our tuition assistance program, which helps give all families the gift of a catholic education.
How can you contribute? Every dollar we receive in Sponsorship and Underwriting goes towards reducing the costs associated with the live auction, enabling us to generate more funds for our school. To become a Sponsor or Underwriter: Please reach out to us at email@example.com

Join our community in raising your paddle for a special cause! It is important for all families to have access to the exceptional Catholic education at Our Lady of the Lake. This year’s paddle raise will help to ensure that the ability to pay will not be a deterrent to the education we all enjoy. 100% of this year’s paddle raise will go directly toward Our Lady of the Lake’s 2024-25 tuition assistance in the operating budget. No goods or services were provided in consideration of this gift.
We appreciate your dedication to supporting our kids and making sure families’ financial situations do not impact their ability to choose a Catholic education.
Thank You Generous Donors.
