Past Presidents And Award Recipients

Each year the Fathers Club produces and manages the Pirate Treasure Auction and Car Raffle, a storied tradition within The Prep community. With all hands-on deck, this is our largest fundraiser of the year. The gymnasium is outfitted to accommodate over 400 attendees, a tricky tray auction, a silent auction and a live auction. In addition, the winner of the car raffle is selected and the Art Williams Award is presented to this year’s recipient.

All current, past and incoming members of The Prep, spouses, family and friends over the age of 21 are invited to attend. Admission for two is included with the purchase of a car raffle ticket. We serve a buffet dinner with an open bar that includes wine, beer and water along with coffee and dessert. This is a great night of enjoying the The Prep Family with great friends, great laughs and great auction items!

The evening begins at 7:00 pm and concludes around 11:00pm. All proceeds are utilized by The Prep for the support of activities, athletics and events in many capacities. This year’s auction will be held on Saturday, April, 25, 2020 at 7pm in the school gymnasium….we hope you will join us!
