Our destination is China! 

Our Destination is China for A Grand Tour of Nations 2017, a special night benefiting Saint John’s Preparatory School. We’re inviting you to be a part of Saint John’s Prep’s biggest party of the year on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Gorecki Center on the campus of the College of Saint Benedict.
Join this entertaining celebration and help raise money for scholarships and our school. A Grand Tour includes gourmet hors d’oevre stations, a Chinese tasting menu and energetic live & silent auctions. This exciting event brings together more than 200 people and raises over $50,000 for Saint John’s Prep.

Be a part of this exciting event as our guest, donate an auciton item, advertise in our auction book or become a sponsor. We are very grateful for all of the support we receive from our families, alumni/ae and friends.

Thanks for a Great 2016 Event

Thank you to all of our parents, grandparents, alumni/ae and friends who supported us at A Grand Tour of Nations on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at the Gorecki Center on the campus of the College of Saint Benedict. The Grand Tour of Nations is the premiere tuition assistance fundraiser for Saint John’s Preparatory School. This event featured a delicious Italian food, Italian decor, silent and live auctions and musical entertainment.

A Grand Tour of Nations is our largest fundraising event of the year. It's a party filled with fun including live and silent auctions, great food and beautiful music. The 2017 theme is a "Destination: China" so get ready for some incredible Asian delights!

The money raised at A Grand Tour goes towards student scholarships and programming. All help is appreciated for this important fundraiser. There are many ways to volunteer! If you would like to volunteer in any of these areas, please contact Rita Meyer.
• Decor (how the room and tables at Gorecki Center/CSB gets decorated)
• Auction item solicitation and management (track correspondence & responses from those solicited, coordinate follow-up calls/visits/e-mails and coordinate the pick up of items)
• Advertising (secure/sell auction book advertising)
• Event execution (assist in the event set up and/or be present the night of the event)
All of these areas would require a minimal amount of your time, especially if we can achieve the "many hands make light work" mantra.

Thank You to Our 2016 Sponsors!
