  • Aaron Hund is the Leavenworth Regional Catholic School System president. The Catholic schools are hosting Greenway Auction 2014 on Saturday at McGilley Field House on the campus of the University of Saint Mary, 4100 S. Fourth St.
    In this Q5, Hund elaborates on the event, the causes it supports and the impressive prizes up for auction.
    1. What is the Greenway Auction?
    Since 1978, the Greenway Auction has been the annual signature fundraising event for the Leavenworth Regional Catholic Schools. Thousands of guests from our local communities in the Leavenworth-area and beyond have gathered over the years at the ‘Greenway’ to share in friendship and fun, while showing their support for our Catholic schools.”
    2. What's the theme for this year's auction, and how was it chosen?
    The theme for Greenway Auction 2014 is ‘Stayin’ Alive.’ Our Greenway Auction planning committee strives to be creative from year to year, choosing themes that keep the event fresh and exciting. As we celebrate the disco days of the 1970s this year, how can we not think of the Bee Gees hit song when we catch that ‘Saturday Night Fever’ on March 29?”
    3. What are some of the items up for auction this year?
    Items up for bid at this year’s Greenway Auction include: a week-long stay in Ireland, Justin Timberlake concert tickets, Kansas Jayhawks men’s basketball tickets, a lawn care package for the entire year, and highly sought-after Boulevard Brewing Company Chocolate Ale gift baskets. With hundreds of silent and live auction items available, there is something for everyone at Greenway Auction 2014.”
    4. How much has the event raised throughout the years, and do you have a goal for this year?
    In the past five years, the Greenway Auction has raised more than $525,000 to support the Leavenworth Regional Catholic Schools. Thank you to our many guests and donors who have helped us achieve outstanding results over the years. The goal for Greenway Auction 2014 is $133,000.”
    5. How will the money raised during the auction be used?
    Monies raised at Greenway Auction play an integral role in the fiscal year operating budget of the Leavenworth Regional Catholic School System. Maintaining fiduciary responsibility while keeping tuition affordable for families, improving and maintaining school facilities, and retaining and recruiting the very best faculty and staff is a high priority for the LRCSS.
