The 37th Annual Rainbow Auction planned for April 25, 2020 has been POSTPONED! For more information, email awallace@muskegoncatholic.org.  


The Rainbow Auction, established by a committee of volunteers in 1983, is our signature fundraising event!  Over 300 guests with a passion for and commitment to Catholic education come together each year for an evening of food, fun, friendship, and bidding to celebrate and support our school.

The evening kicks off with our silent auction, which features art and décor, household items, toys and games, food and drink, gift certificates, and much more—all generously donated from local and regional businesses, parishioners, and our school families.  After enjoying a delicious meal, catered by Hearthstone Bistro, we launch right into our live auction, which includes everything from awesome vacations/stay-cations and sports event packages to dining excursions and one-of-a-kind experiences. 

All funds raised at the Auction help us to reach our financial goals in order to provide tuition assistance, vital improvements in classrooms and around campus, and funds for academic programs that enrich the curriculum for all students at Muskegon Catholic Central.

Purchase Tickets to the 37th Annual Rainbow Auction hereTickets are $125 and include hors d'oeuvres, dinner and dessert catered by Hearthstone Bistro, and top shelf bar.
