The 2018 Gala and Auction, The Future in Motion, was held at the Marconi Car Museum in Tustin. The Gala and Auction is the largest fundraiser of the school year and helps raise funds that support St. John the Baptist Catholic School in a variety of ways.

This year's Gala netted a total profit of $157,000. Of this total amount, $49,800 was specifically raised during our annual Paddle Raise. These specific funds will be used this year to make much needed improvements to our sound systems in the Parish Hall where the school's Drama Program puts on a fall play and a spring musical each year as well as our Christmas Program, Spring Sing, and a variety of assemblies throughout the school year.

Additionally, improvements will be made to the sound system at Mary's Grotto. This Grotto is where the entire school community begins each day in prayer.
