Fundraising Events

Special events offer a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and raise funds for programs and projects to enhance the Prout student experience.

Spring Auction: March 21, 2020

The Spring Auction, now in its 26th year, is The Prout School's single largest fundraising event. All proceeds -- except for the monies raised during the Fund a Need portion of the evening -- allow the school to provide financial assistance to those families that want a safe, rigorous Catholic education for their children, but cannot do so without some help.

This year's auction will take place at Ochre Court, on the campus of Salve Regina University in Newport on Saturday, March 21, 2020. Invitations will be sent out shortly.

The event is a lot of fun, but an enormous undertaking. Fortunately, we are in the capable hands of our auction co-chairs -- Prout moms Meredith Barber and Chantel O'Neill -- and an incredibly enthusiastic and hard-working committee members:
