Scholarship Auction

Save the date for the 47th Annual Scholarship Auction on Saturday, November 10, 2018!

U of D Jesuit is dedicated to its mission of providing an affordable education to all qualified students in the Metro Detroit area. In the 2018-19 school year we will provide financial assistance to 34% of our students. This amounts to more than $1.7 million in tuition reduction for those families. Through your generosity at the Scholarship Auction we are able to continue our pledge to provide tuition assistance to any family showing financial need.

This year's Honorary Chairs for the Scholarship Auction are Lorri and Dr. James Delaney III ’80. U of D Jesuit thanks the Delaneys for their many years of volunteering and attending auctions at The High. Additionally, we appreciate their generosity in opening their home for auction gift-gathering parties and ticketed "Casino Nights" over the years. Lorri and James' Cubs are Jamie ’06, Ryan ’12, Adam ’16, Kyle ’16, and Shane ’19.
