Last year was a record for the annual ACE auction at Thomas More Prep-Marian High School in Hays.
The fundraiser, which supports TMP and Holy Family Elementary schools, brought in more than $600,000, according to Advancement Director Jeff Brull. Half of the proceeds were used for the TMP elevator project, which is nearly complete.
This year is another kind of record, as the ACE auction will mark its 40th year. Although tickets are sold out, donors still can participate in the live auction online at Hays Post and the TMP website:
The TMP ACE auction for Catholic Education is Saturday, April 26.
