Live Auction & Party

“A Night under the Stars” Live Auction and Party

La Catalina Foundation runs two annual fundraisers.  One is an online auction and the other is “A Night under the Stars” silent auction and party.

The online auction runs from February 1st through February 15th. Last bids must be placed by 10:00pm on February 15th. Visit our online auction page by clicking HERE.  Every year there is art, hotel stays, and spa and restaurant certificates available at great prices!  If you aren’t in our area and win an item, we offer shipping to your home.

Our 14th annual “A Night under the Stars” auction and party is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 24th, 2018 in La Manzanilla’s main plaza.  The event runs from 6pm to 9:30pm.  It includes not only a silent auction, but also a delicious Mexican dinner and a show featuring local talent, folkloric dancers, live music, and kids’ performances. For photos of last year's event please visit our FACEBOOK PAGE.

If you would like to donate an auction item please contact Joanne Kipp (Volunteer Auction Coordinator): auction@lacatalinafoundation.org

Giving back to the community:

The revenue generated from the online auction and the live event are distributed back to the community in three ways:

  • 25% donated to the La Manzanilla public schools
  • 25% supports our free educational programs
  • 50% go towards construction of La Catalina Foundation's center

We rely on donations of items and certificates to make this fundraiser a success! We also look for volunteers to manage the silent auction. If you’re interested in donating or volunteering, please contact us.

We would like to express sincere appreciation to all the many donors and volunteers who made the 2016 event a success!  For a budget of the 2016 online auction and “A Night under the Stars” event please click here to download the pdf file.
