O'Dea High School

Thank you for Celebrating O’Dea!

What a wonderful celebrating of bidding, raffles, donating, and generosity to the young men of O’Dea! Thank you to our committee, volunteers, and community for their support of our auction. A special thank you to our 2024 Auction Chairs, Megan Turner and Molly Burdeen!

Not able to join us for Celebrate O’Dea? You can still make an impact on the lives of O’Dea Students! We want to ensure all qualified and deserving young men who wish to attend O’Dea can do so, regardless of their personal financial circumstances. As our need-based financial aid rises to over $2 million a year, we need you! Your commitment ensures that we can continue to educate students who desire a Catholic education at O’Dea High School.

What is Celebrate O’Dea?

Celebrate O’Dea is a fun filled evening for parents, alumni parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends of O’Dea. You will enjoy an evening dedicated to the students of O’Dea as we come together for dinner and raise funds through our live auction, raffles, and Fund-A-Need. This event is held every March.

The auction was first organized in 1971 to give financial support to the school’s operating budget. Today, proceeds from this event not only contribute to the operating budget, but also support programs such as financial aid, facility improvements, academic programs, and student life. Funds raised by the auction will benefit every student, every day, at O’Dea.
