The “Spring Fling” is an annual event where parents, faculty, alumni and friends come together to support St. James while enjoying great food, cocktails, and music. There is a live auction, as well as a silent auction, where patrons can bid on trips, wonderful merchandise, and children’s art projects. It is always an exceptionally fun event for everyone. The proceeds from the Spring Fling directly impact our scholars by helping to fund technology in the classrooms, salaries and professional development for faculty, curricular materials, scholarships, grants and financial aid, along with athletics and other enrichment programs. Every dollar we make supports our scholars and has the impact to change our community for the best.
This event draws upon the creativity, vision, and energy of the whole community. There is a job for everyone, from decorations, entertainment, solicitation of auction items and more. All committees are open and everyone is encouraged to find a place to join in, and bring a friend.
Information about Spring Fling
Just like everything else this year, our Spring Fling is going to look very different from past years, due to COVID. We were unable to hold a Spring Fling event in 2020, and in lieu of a large indoor gathering for 2021, we have created a NEW outdoor event to celebrate with our community.
We are introducing a Sporting Clay Shoot and Spring Festival to provide fun and fellowship for the whole family!
