Shamrock & Roll 2020

What is Shamrock & Roll?

In addition to being the most FUN event that Holy Redeemer's Home and School Association (HSA) hosts, it is our MOST IMPORTANT event that enables us to make sizable capital improvements & enhancements to our beloved school.  All funds raised at our 100% volunteer-run auction go directly to our school community and our children's educational experience. This year, our fundraising efforts will enhance Holy Redeemer School’s technology resources and our *new* outdoor play areas. 

What should I expect on Auction Night?

7:00 pm Doors Open and Check-In

7:00 pm-10:00 pm Dinner, Drinks, Bidding and More!

10:00 pm SHARP Live Auction Begins and Silent Auction CLOSES

10:30 pm -Midnight Love, Loyalty, Friendship (and DANCING!)

With your ticket, you receive access to the full beer and wine bar and a bid number to engage in the silent auction - which will begin earlier that week (and you'll use this website to preview and BID on the items). You’ll eat delicious food and have plenty of time to balance socializing and outbidding your friends for all your favorite auction items. At approximately 10 pm, the live auction begins, emceed by two HR dads. The live auction is full of surprises!  After the live auction, there is dancing, more socializing and fellowship until the very end.

What is St. Joseph's Night?

Something new this year to kick things off! On Thursday, March 5th from 7-9 pm in HYA, the First Annual St. Joseph’s Night will be an evening of fellowship, friendship and the celebration of fatherhood for the men of HR. Holy Redeemer will be honoring Johnny Holliday, legendary sports broadcaster, 50-year parishioner, former HR dad, and current HR grandfather, as a superb example of one who has endeavored to be “a father to all” through his extensive and far-reaching charitable efforts to bring Catholic education to children who would otherwise not be able to afford it. We are truly grateful to take time to honor Mr. Holliday whose life and career is a true example of true Christian fatherhood to the world at large. Enjoy locally produced adult beverages & delicious food with fellow men of our community. For more detailed information, navigate to the St. Joseph's Night tab. 

What if I'm new to Holy Redeemer or a preschool parent?

We got you, new folks! Check out the Green Package, a special value just for our newest HR school and parish families in their first or second year with us. In addition to tickets to the auction itself, you’ll also receive entrance to a special advance pre-party the night of the auction, aka, the Green Party, just for you and other new families, just steps away from the auction itself. Any questions? Email Meaghan Davis, mmccarthy20@gmail.com.

What about CCD families, CYO families, neighbors and Holy Redeemer parish community members?  

We want you, CCD families, CYO families, neighbors, and parishioners - alums too!  We welcome you and with open arms. The Claddagh Package is just for you.  

What if my child’s grandparent wants to participate? 

Oh yes, HR grandparents! Of course, if you’re able to attend, we’d love any grandparents, friends or relatives to attend in person, but if you cannot attend or would prefer to attend remotely, the St. Patrick’s Package is for you. This is for any grandparents, relatives or friends who’d like to be in on the fun and participate, but who can’t be there in person.

What is the Family Video Ad and how do we do it?

Reusable tumblers, smartphone bidding - and an online program - SRR has gone green! No more paper programs - Family Video Ads will be accessible via the SRR website, social media feeds, and onsite! This is the perfect opportunity to create a slideshow or live video thanking the faculty, staff, and priests of Holy Redeemer. Be as creative (and funny!) as you would like! This is your family’s time to shine! 

Family Ad Video Specifications

  • Video Length: No longer than 30 Seconds

  • Format: All videos must be sent as a .mov file, which is the format used on iOS/iPhone devices. Please flip your phone horizontally to ensure proper formatting.

Where are the T-Shirts and how do we order?

We’re thrilled to offer a la carte ordering for SRR T-Shirts this year. You only order what you want in the sizes you want.  After selecting your ticket package, be sure to select the a la carte t-shirt option in the size(s) you wish to order. Please note that ALL T-Shirts MUST Be Ordered BY 2/18. We will not be ordering additional t-shirts over and above your orders, so please choose wisely - once the t-shirt window is over, it’s really over! And for those who don’t know, HR kids can wear the SRR2020 t-shirts in lieu of their PE uniform on PE days before the auction!


What’s the deal on the YETI tumblers?

YETI makes the best-insulated tumblers and offering them this year is just one part of our effort to “go green” and reduce waste and provide a durable, practical souvenir that you can use on auction night and beyond! Full disclosure, we are offering them at our cost because we want to offer our families a memento to last and make it as affordable as possible. These are sure to be a collector's item, and a must-have at flag-football games, CYO Basketball Tourneys, and perfect for Spring Break beach beverages!

I don't have a green blazer or cocktail gown. What should I wear to SRR 2020?

It's completely appropriate (and expected) to dress St. Patrick's Day Chic (whatever that may mean to you!) for Shamrock & Roll 2020. This isn't your typical buttoned-up school auction. We won't give away too many surprises but GET YOUR GREEN ON for an especially fun night at Holy Redeemer's neighborhood Irish Pub.

St. Joseph's Night

Saint Joseph’s Night is our first-ever extension of the Shamrock & Roll auction experience. Taking place on Thursday, two days before the actual auction, it will be a smaller, more intimate evening for men only, designed to build community and celebrate fatherhood with a festive whiskey tasting and Mediterranean tapas. It is also a night to spotlight Christian fatherhood in the tradition of Saint Joseph. 

Holy Redeemer will be honoring Johnny Holliday, legendary sports broadcaster, 50-year parishioner, former HR dad, and current HR grandfather, as a superb example of one who has endeavored to be “a father to all” through his extensive and far-reaching charitable efforts to bring Catholic education to children who would otherwise not be able to afford it. We are truly grateful to take time to honor Mr. Holliday whose life and career is a true example of true Christian fatherhood to the world at large.

Tickets to St. Joseph's Night are available both in ticket packages and separately. Please visit the Buy Tickets page to purchase. We welcome all men of the Holy Redeemer community to what is sure to be a night to remember.
