WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH OUR FIRST VIRTUAL EXTRAVAGANZA.

Online bidding will be open on Wednesday, August 12 and will conclude with a live broadcast on Saturday, August 15 at 7:30 p.m.

When we postponed Extravaganza 2020 in March at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, we never imagined we would still be social distancing in August. Now, we know that a large gathering on August 22 is not possible. See more details about the virtual event below.

Planning safe, responsible watch parties

We hope that families can plan small, safe Virtual Extravaganza watch parties on Saturday, Aug. 15. Extravaganza co-chair Patty Wartko ’77 provides some important safety tips to make sure gatherings are safe and responsible.

Dawn Gainer shares four, simple centerpiece ideas for our watch-party hosts. 

Thanks, Rock The House Entertainment, for all your support and helping make the night extra special!

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!

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.
