Highland Catholic School is going back in time to the era of peace, love and good vibes with That 70s Swing

Join our annual events and online auction between May 5-13 and let’s together do our students and the community a solid. This year’s annual fundraiser encompasses a full week of impactful community fun that promises to be far out while raising funds for our beloved school. 

Our theme also recognizes the great work of our students and teachers to learn and embody All Are Welcome this school year.


Why is SWING so important?

In addition to supporting the general operating budget, including stable tuition rates, access to specialists, extra programming, technology upgrades, and facility improvements, the focus of this year’s fundraiser is critical resources to continue our efforts to support the whole child. Because strong children make a community stronger.

How do I join this year’s SWING love train?

First and foremost, bid in our online auction May 5-13, bring your family and friends to the Family Fun Event on May 5 and join us for a night of community and fundraising at our May 13 gala.

There are also other critical ways you can help us make SWING a smashing success:

  • Join the hustle. Learn more about how you can volunteer your time and talents during our kick-off meeting: Feb 13, 7:00-8:00pm, Lumen Christi Community Room.
  • Be part of the movement. Become a fundraiser business sponsor or donate an auction item or service. Contact us for more information.
  • Dig the swag. Pre-order student SWING shirts once sales open this Spring.

As we get closer to May 5, keep an eye out for shopping teasers as well as exclusive SUPER Silent Auction items being featured at the Gala.
