Since 1986, parents, alumni, employees and friends of Hoban have helped plan this dinner and auction event. It is now Hoban's largest fundraising event. Proceeds from the auction have supported facility improvements, student scholarships and technology upgrades.

Hoban Extravaganza “A Knight at the Disco” has been postponed until the Fall

Dear Extravaganza Sponsors, Advertisers and Hoban Community,

We are all very disappointed that we will not be gathering on March 28 to celebrate Extravaganza 2020 - A Knight at the Disco. After much consideration, we have decided to postpone Extravaganza 2020 to early Fall. A future email will be sent with the new date.

Since 1953, our community has supported Hoban through many difficult circumstances. There is no way of knowing the full impact that the coronavirus and subsequent shutdowns will have on each of us. We strongly feel we need to take the time to care for each other. We are hopeful that postponing Extravaganza until the Fall will be the best decision for all of us - Hoban, our students, our families, and our supporters.

We will continue to offer our $100 raffle tickets for a chance to win $10,000. You can purchase these tickets now.

We look forward to seeing you all soon and celebrating A Knight at the Disco at a time when we can all genuinely celebrate and support Hoban.

During these challenging times, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Thank you for your generous support of Archbishop Hoban.

Extravaganza 2019 set new records in raising funds

Extravaganza on April 13 took in a gross total of $673,328 in sponsorships and gifts—an all-time record! "This success is a reflection of the extraordinary generosity of the Hoban family, which is a true blessing," President Todd Sweda said.

The Bernard Foundation offered a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $60,000 in pledges. Amazingly, Hoban supporters exceeded the challenge by $32,575, for a record-breaking total of $152,575. This will be used for student scholarships and financial aid. 

Special thanks to sponsors, including the title sponsors, Don Wartko Construction and the Wartko family and William ’71 and Sally Scala, as well as advertisers, donors, volunteers and guests.
