A Gift Gathering Party is a social get-together at which parents and friends of Cardinal O’Hara High School come together to gather gifts that will be auctioned off the night of Hawk-tion. Attending a Gift Gathering party does not commit you to attend the auction – many people attend both the Dinner-Auction and a party, some only attend a party. A variety of gifts are gathered at the parties, in all different price ranges. Some families join together to purchase a gift of larger value. Gifts range from appliances, handcrafts, home furnishings, sports apparel, handyman needs, bottles of cheer, college sweatshirts, vacation packages, tickets for sporting events or plays, artwork, and gift certificates from malls, restaurants, salons, etc… Call or email the Advancement at 695-2600, extension 312 or

Parties are hosted by groups of people such as parents, alumni parents, alumni, and friends of our school. Without the Gift Gathering Parties, the auction would not be possible.  Parties are held in homes, country clubs, churches, and backyards; anywhere your imagination lets you wander! The hosts determine their guest list. For host information, please call the  Advancement at 695-2600 ext. 312. 

Gifts that are gathered at the parties or donated directly to our school are recorded and prepared for the night of the auction in the Advancement Office.
