Ursuline Ultimate Auction 2013
Ursuline Academy will be holding its 31st Ultimate Auction on November 23, 2013 in our own Besl Theatre. It is our honor to announce that this year’s Auction is co-chaired by couples Gerry and Jenny Reilly, parents of Margaret ’06, Caroline ’10, Katie ’12, Sarah ’14 and Grace ’16 and Joe and Jean Desch, parents of Olivia ’14 and Madolyn ’16.
Together we are building a talented Steering Committee who will ensure that Auction 2013 breaks all records for proceeds and fun. This year’s theme celebrates the power of Ursuline ‘green’ along with environmental awareness to reuse, recycle and repurpose. The auction is guaranteed to be an enjoyable night of silent and live oral auction items! With months of work, the success of Ursuline’s Annual Ultimate Auction cannot survive without the dedicated parents, alumnae, and friends of Ursuline.
