Dear Friends of St. Pat's,
We are honored to chair this year’s REACH Auction. Since 1975, St. Pat’s has sponsored a REACH (Religious Education A Catholic Heritage) dinner auction run by volunteers and dedicated staff to help fund critical school programs. Our theme is REACH Reunion…Building on Generations for a Bright Future. Our goal is to re-engage alumni, celebrate enrolled families, cherish parishioners, and introduce our school to prospective families. We are blessed to have Chris Gavin as our principal and our auction will highlight our wonderful school community.
We look forward to bringing the auction back to school this year. A preview reception to thank our sponsors, REACH Board, REACH Steering Committee, and past Chairs will be held at 5:00 pm in the library. Doors will open at 6:00 pm for the auction and registration will be in the library.
Dinner will be held in the gym and served family style. We will have limited, but strategic, live and silent auction items because we want to increase our revenue from the auction and we also want it to be a fun night for everyone who attends. We hired a great band, The Shy Boys, who play rock and roll. Jeans and dancing shoes are encouraged!
In addition to increasing our revenue on the live and silent auctions, we also hope to raise important needed funds for this year’s Fund-an-Item.
REACH Reunion…Building on Generations for a Bright Future is our opportunity to support our beloved school. With your support, we will reach our goal to raise $300,000. We are looking forward to seeing you at REACH Reunion on April 16, 2016.

St. Pat’s has a long tradition of providing a formative education to children in North Tacoma. What was started by the Tacoma Dominican Sisters in 1893 is now a pre-kindergarten through 8th grade community (primary through middle school) staffed by committed teachers with specialties in literacy, music, art and physical education as well as Spanish and technology. St. Pat’s has maintained the original mission of the Dominican Sisters — to provide a quality Catholic education in order to nourish the faith life of our students.
