Join Us at the Annual SMS Gala!

Which ticket is right for me?


Ticket tiers are designed to customize the night based on your budget. You can start with the basic admission offered with the Emmy level, upgrade to Grammy, Tony, or Oscar, or pick and choose from the à la carte options! A la carte options can also be added to any package deal - for example, you can purchase an Oscar ticket (trivia entry, entrée, wine, dessert & swag), and add on an extra entrée & dessert for your spouse, or purchase a Tony ticket (trivia entry, wine, & dessert) and add on a set of SMS wine glasses or an extra dessert. The sky is the limit, and all purchases benefit the school!




Can I invite non-school families?


Yes! This event is intended for adults (we suggest you let your kids have a movie night of their own in another room!) and all are welcome to attend: friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, parishioners, families from other schools, anyone who wants to support SMS and have a great time is welcome! Since the event is virtual this year, it’s a great opportunity for your friends and family who live out-of-state to support SMS without having to travel - they can register for the Emmy ticket level and play trivia, buy 50/50 tickets, and support the school no matter how far away they are.




Can I purchase tickets for my favorite teacher/clergy/staff?


Yes! Just submit the RSVP cards with the Staff Member’s name filled in on the RSVP card or purchase via Eventbrite. Email Emily Molloy to reserve your favorite teacher, buy a block of staff tickets or to specify who you purchased a Staff ticket for on Eventbrite. stmartinschoolauction@gmail.com




What meal choices will I have?


Meals will be provided by Freshly, an innovative meal delivery service that creates freshly prepared meals that are fully cooked and refrigerated. All you’ll need to do is heat your meal in the microwave and plate it. More details on specific entrée choices coming asap! Entrées will be served with rolls and side salads.

Wine selections include wines from Olney Winery, a local business that supports the school. Choose from Early Morning Moon Pinot Grigio, X Brothers Pinot Noir, Olney Winery Blackberry Merlot, Olney Winery Peach Chardonnay. A bottle of Perrier is an available option as well.

Dessert will be gourmet Hollywood-themed cookies by the famous Ecinue Creations. If you’re lucky, you’ve seen and tasted these beautiful and delicious works of art at another SMS event. Each one is a work of art - almost too pretty to eat, but too delicious not to!

The Oscar level ticket includes home delivery - all meal items will be dropped off at your home (within a 15 mile radius of school) on the day of the event. Delivery can be added to other packages for a minimal fee.




Can I make additional donations & purchases during the event?


Yes! You can use a credit card or a PayPal account to buy additional 50/50 tickets and make specific donations to the school during the event. 50/50 tickets will be available for cash, check, or credit card leading up to the event, and tickets can be purchased by cash, check, or credit card.




Do I have to be on the Zoom call to bid on live auction items? Or to win the 50/50 drawing?


To bid on live auction items, you must be in the Zoom call. Your internet connection is your responsibility. If someone has a lag or a connectivity issue after they have started bidding, we will make a good faith effort to hear their bids. The winner of the 50/50 raffle need not be present to win.




I purchased an Emmy (or Grammy, or Tony) level ticket but now I want to upgrade. Can I do that?


Yes! Just email Emily Molloy at stmartinschoolauction@gmail.com and/or send in a note explaining what level you previously purchased and what you would like to change it to along with payment for the difference in price.
