The Saints Peter and Paul Home and School Association will host its 32nd annual dinner and auction at Knights of Columbus Hall in Boonville beginning at 5:00 PM on Saturday, Feb., 24.
The event, which has a construction theme, is the primary fundraiser to support the developments and operations of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School. Proceeds from previous years have contributed to the addition of the school’s new gym, updated physical education equipment, a playground renovation and upgrades to school technology.
Proceeds from the event will be utilized primarily for classroom technology upgrades including Google Chromebooks and accessories. To finance these upgrades, the goal of SS Peter and Paul Home and School Association is to raise $6,000.
The dinner menu for the 2018 fundraiser will feature smoked chicken breasts, cheesy potatoes, green beans, dessert and salad. The price of the meal is $15 per person. Dinner will be served from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM.
In addition to the dinner, a silent auction will run until 7:15 PM and the live auction will begin at 7:30 PM. The more than 250 Items in the auction will include: an Amazon Echo, Frigidaire Stainless Electric Range, a Serta massage recliner, a pond party for 20 people, homemade furniture and foods, among others. A full listing of items for auction is available at and there is a Facebook page dedicated to the auction titled “SS Peter and Paul Annual Auction.”
Five auctioneers will conduct the live auction during the event; Eric Reisinger, Mickey Reichel, Cody Martin, Tim Derendinger and Charlie Flashpohler. The dinner was sponsored by donation from Dr. Stephen Taylor and will be prepared by Joe Whitting and Seth Cater.
