The Marquette Academy is hosting its 40th Annual May Merriment Dinner/Auction on Saturday May 7th.
The main objective of May Merriment is to bridge the gap between tuition fees and the real cost of education.
If you can’t make it to May Merriment, the silent auction opened its online auction on Friday. You may submit a proxy bid for live auction items by calling the High School Advancement Office, 815-433-0125, ext. 1018. Visit the auction website at www.bidpal.net/mmm40 to see all the items for sale and buy a raffle ticket.
The Big Cash Raffle early draw took place on Friday, but there are five more cash prizes, including a grand prize of $25,000.
Marquette Academy said it appreciates the hundreds of people involved who have made May Merriment a continued success for 40 years. May Merriment has provided a progressive revenue stream that has enabled thousands of students to obtain quality religious education at Marquette Academy.
