Touch of Class Auction – Postponed

April 6, 2020
On behalf of our Touch of Class Dinner & Auction Committee, I would like to thank you for your continued support through the years. Unfortunately, we must postpone our event for this spring. But we are discussing possible option dates to host our auction in mid-summer or early fall. Like you, we are waiting for news from Governor DeWine about the return to work status. We also must have the blessing of Bishop Brennan in order to host this and any event for Newark Catholic. Once we have their approval we will communicate auction details to you.
For those of you who have donated, we will be using your gift as planned unless you request we return your donation. For those of you who have purchased tickets, we will hold them for the event unless you request that you would like to be reimbursed at this time. For those of you who would still like to donate or purchase a ticket, we will be in touch as soon as we know the exact date for you to do so. Please email me, at with any questions or concerns.
We will all need to gather in celebration once this time in history is over, what better place to do so then with your friends and family at NCHS. Check this website often for updates about the Auction and all school events that will be posted as quickly as possible.
Again, thank you for all you continue to do for our Newark Catholic Community. Please keep us in your prayers as you will remain in ours.
May the Lord bless you and keep you close during this time and always.
Miss Beth Hill, Principal
