We welcome you to join us for St. John XXIII Catholic School’s (SJ23) most significant evening of the year; The 22nd Annual Key Event.

We recognize this event as our most important fundraiser, but it’s so much more. It is the life blood of what draws our school community together. It is a culmination of a year’s worth of planning and participation by volunteers across the SJ23 family that recognize the importance of Catholic education and values to our families and in particular, our young people.

Historically, The Key Event is the single largest source of fundraising revenue for SJ23. It raises between 5-10% of the school’s annual budget and ensures we have the best staff in place to well serve the learning needs of all of our students. Your generosity – whether through bidding online or in person – is, quite literally, the key to continuing the SJ23 tradition of exceptional academics and a quality faith-based education here in Port Washington.

We belong to SJ23 because we believe it’s important to develop and reinforce high moral character in our students and children. We believe community matters. Our children walk a path when they are young that leads them to serve later in life. However, we have to recognize that there is a cost to pave that path. We look to events like this to raise the funds necessary to make our school viable for this generation and those that follow.

We invite you to this fun-filled, auction-packed evening. Come to enjoy the camaraderie, and help support a larger cause that impacts the young people that will shape our future. If you cannot attend in person, please consider supporting The 2023 Key Event by donating an item or service, making a cash donation, or by purchasing an event advertisement. The success of this event is a testament to the mission of SJ23, its importance to the community, and the generosity of supporters such as you. We thank you!
