Gehlen Catholic Ball
an American Celebration is looking
red, white and NEW!

Silent Auction Link: Coming Soon!
Program Link: Coming Soon! 


On April 18, for the good of all, join us for the online Gehlen Catholic Ball. We have reinvented the largest fundraiser for Gehlen Catholic to ensure your safety and allow you to participate from the comfort of your own home.


Since the CDC recommends cancelling or postponing large events due to COVID-19, and we are unsure of what the timeframe will be for these recommendations, we know moving the event online this year is the best option for everyone.


The proceeds from our annual Ball are crucial to the future of our students and school system. So even though we cannot all be together physically, we ask for your virtual support to ensure a fun and successful fundraiser.


Sit back, relax and let us explain how this will work:

  • The Silent Auction will be exclusively online with bidding open for 6 days.
  • On the Silent Auction webpage, you will be able to bid on items AND make monetary donations.
  • Spring Raffle Tickets are continuing to be sold for $100/each (3 drawings for $5,000; $3,000; $2,000).
  • Spring Raffle Ticket winners will be drawn during the online program.
  • Online program celebrating Gehlen Catholic School will be released for your whole family to enjoy.
  • For donation, auction, program and grand reveal details and links, visit the Gehlen Ball webpage at gehlencatholic.org or LIKE the Gehlen Catholic Facebook page @gehlencatholicschool.
