LARK Gift Gathering

What is a Gift Gathering ?

Gift Gatherings are an opportunity for people to get together, have fun and bring a gift for the annual LARK Dinner-Auction. These events have been a key factor in the past success of LARK and play an important role in the gathering of donations for the event.

  • LARKtoberfest—Thursday, October 11

Bringing a Gift to a Gift Gathering

Gifts of ANY size have impact and help to support the mission of Regis Jesuit in forming Men and Women with and for Others.

Suggested gift ideas to bring include: Wine or liquor, gift certificates ($25 increments), sports memorabilia, use of vacation properties/mountain homes and cash donations.

REMINDER: We know that many families get invited to multiple parties, so it is important that we let everyone know that, while these parties started as a way to collect gifts for the LARK Auction, our main focus is to build community and foster relationships. Therefore we want families to attend as many gatherings as they desire without feeling an obligation to bring a gift to each party they attend. Our goal is that every family gets invited (and is able to attend) at least one LARK Gift Gathering.

Host a Gift Gathering

We need multiple families and individuals to host each of the Gift Gatherings. Hosting entails making a donation of $100 to cover the cost of food and beverages, donating gift(s) for the auction and helping during the event itself to welcome and mingle with fellow attendees. Gift gathering hosts get recognition in communications for the Gift Gathering in which they host, in the A/V presentation during the night of LARK and on our website. Any unused balance of money donated for hosting will go back to the general fund for LARK.

If you would like to host, scroll down and complete the donation form below (choose designation: LARK Dinner-Auction and write "Gift Gathering Host" in the comments). You can also submit a check made out to RJHS and submit to Helen Bingham, Director of Events (located in the mobile Advancement office outside the Girls Division entrance by Kellogg Stadium).

If you are unable to attend a Gift Gathering, but would like to support LARK, you can also make a monetary donation using the same form (choose designation: LARK Dinner-Auction).
