John F. Kennedy’s KATCH Auction Is April 24th & 25th
John F. Kennedy High School, which has made Burien its home for over 42 years, will be holding its annual KATCH Auction over two nights: Friday April 24th and Saturday, April 25th at the JFK Gymnasium.
KATCH stands for Kennedy Action Toward Christian Heritage, and is an annual benefit auction extravaganza in support of Kennedy High School. Tuition covers only a portion of the expense of providing the superior academic, athletic, artistic and spiritual education that Kennedy offers. The additional funds generated by KATCH are a major component of Kennedyâ€™s capacity for excellence.
Each evening will feature silent and live auctions, excellent food, great raffles and a gym transformed into “An Evening with the Stars.”
Both Friday and Saturday evening are a great time for guests to mingle with friends, network with clients, and most importantly, show their support for the outstanding work Kennedy is doing.
Friday night, April 24th, will be a casual, family event. Packages are designed to meet every budget and special attention is given to items that will appeal to families. Admission is free and no reservations are required.
The evening of Saturday, April 25th will be Hollywood style semi-formal, with a delicious sit-down dinner and a full live auction.
Reservations are required.
KATCH is the biggest social fundraising event on the Kennedy calendar and tables fill fast for this entertaining evening.
The auction is a time for the Kennedy community to come together and demonstrate its commitment to this institution. Many hours of dedicated volunteer work lead up to two nights of food, entertainment and the satisfaction of making a difference.
