Posted on 02/15/2023

Our premier fundraiser for Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools returns this spring, as the Heelan Auction will be at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at Bishop Heelan High School.

This year’s theme is, “Totally 80s, Totally Crusaders,” paying homage to the 1980s. Guests are invited to wear their favorite 80's outfit, or wear a costume depicting your favorite 80's movie or television character. 

Join us for a night of celebration at the Heelan Auction,” BHCS Director of Annual Giving Patty Considine-McClintock said. “The O’Gorman Fieldhouse will transport you back in time for a fun night of fluorescent neon, boom-boxes and cassettes!  The best part is we are doing this all to support our mission here at Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools. We are so thankful to all of our Heelan families for making this possible year after year.”

Our Auction Chairs are Matt and Bridget ‘92 Breen, Nate ‘99 and Mindy Foulk, Saul ‘99 and JoBeth Gomez ‘05, Kane ‘06 and Mandi ‘04 Kuehl, and Tim Uber, who graduated from HHS in 1980. 

Early bird tickets — good for $90 through March 3 — are available to buy on the auction web site. After March 3, the admission price goes up to $100 and $125 on April 1. 

Attendees will be able to start bidding on silent auction items before the event, but in person, that night, it’ll start at 5 p.m.., along with games and raffle ticket sales will also begin when the doors open.

Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. following a prayer. We will also hand out Crusader of the Year and Volunteer of the Year awards. 

The live auction and the “Heads or Tails” game will be held at 8 p.m. The Fund-A-Cause and raffle drawings will happen at 8:45. 

We will also have a dance party with a DJ with all 80s music starting at 9 p.m., lasting until midnight. 

There is more info at, such as how to donate auction items or make a monetary donation. 

Last year’s theme was wrapped around the 1989 movie, “Field of Dreams,” which was a huge success.
