Seeking Chatard-A-Bration Volunteers

Chatard-A-Bration is one of Bishop Chatard’s primary fundraisers, providing many students the financial assistance they need to attend our North Deanery Catholic school. Our volunteers are a huge part of the event’s fun and success. As planning begins, we are looking for energetic volunteers who are interested in meeting other parents and becoming part of our vibrant school community. We need YOU!

Volunteer opportunities are available on the following committees:

Members of this committee will collaborate with other parents in your parish (or the parish area you live in, if you are not a member) to solicit and collect donations for Chatard-A-Bration’s silent auction. The full committee meets three or four times between September and January, and your individual parish groups may meet more often. You will be provided with a list of past donors in your parish area and be asked to brainstorm for new auction items. Encourage a few friends sign up with you, and make it a fun social way to get involved with Chatard-A-Bration!
Members of the Raffle Committee will sell raffle tickets (and work closely with Advancement staff) starting in October and continuing through the night of Chatard-A-Bration. In past years, tickets have been sold at athletic and theatre events, and we have conducted a phone-a-thon to boost ticket sales. This committee will help sell tickets, but members will also brainstorm other creative ways to reach ticket buyers and boost sales.
Members of this committee will work behind the scenes, entering donated auction items into a google form for our auction software. The approximately 700 auction items we anticipate having this year will need to be entered, with much of the work being completed in January and February during the school day at BCHS. If you have computer experience and free time during the school day, this committee might be perfect for you!

Chatard-A-Bration 2018

Over 600 guests came ready for a good time at Chatard-A-Bration’s Oktoberfest on February 17, 2018, and the event did not disappoint! Hometown favorite PolkaBoy, presented by Printing Partners, rocked Bishop Chatard’s Biergarten, keeping many on the dance floor. Thank you to all who donated auction items, sponsored the event, volunteered for committees and, of course, joined us Saturday night. It was a very successful night for the Bishop Chatard community!

Fund-A-Need 2018

It’s not too late to support this cause! Our Fund-A-Need cause for 2018 has an independent goal of raising $30,000 for 75 new iPads, to replace some of our original school-owned iPads purchased five years ago with devices that better serve today’s needs.
