Event Details & Description

What:

The Black & Red Bash, is an annual Spring event for HCA friends and family to come together for good food, great company, and to raise money for the school through a live and silent auction. The Black & Red Bash is a fun evening including dinner, entertainment, live and silent auctions, as well as exciting drawings for items such as half-off tuition for next year, and more. All proceeds raised benefit HCA and its educational programs.

What's New:

This year, there are some exciting additions. We are thrilled to have Tim Brown, Heisman Trophy Recipient and NFL Hall of Fame Inductee, join us as keynote speaker. Additionally, we will have some new games such as the "Ticket to Win It" game, and you can buy a square at the "100 Wins" board. There will also be some "Fund-a-Cause" options to support some specific new school programs. Also, try your bidding skills at the "Big Board Auction" for our not-quite-live items. Lastly, for those with elementary age children needing childcare, no worries, we have a pre-registration and fee-based option to take care of that at the venue. 

When/Where:

The Black & Red Bash will take place on Saturday, April 7th, 2018, 6:00pm, at the Hilton Lakefront in Rockwall. Tickets are $75.00. Tickets are available for purchase through this online link: https://payit.nelnet.net/form/03PppoGo

2017 Results:

This event has always been one of the most successful fundraisers for HCA, and in 2017, that proved to be the case once again. The school raised a net profit of over $115,000! Due to the generosity of our donors, volunteers, attendees, families, staff and friends, money raised has gone a long way toward furthering our mission.


Thank you, and Glory to God!

How You Can Help

Attend the Event:

The most important thing you can do is attend the event, and not only attend the event but also invite your friends and family to join as well. This is not a closed event; it is a great way for the parents and supporters of HCA to gather for a evening of food, fellowship and fun. 


Purchase Car Tickets:

You have probably been asked to sell car tickets, and some of you probably don't know what that means.

This year, the school has graciously been provided a car from Sewell Automotive which was purchased/donated by an anonymous friend of HCA. The car isn't auctioned off, but instead raffled off the night of the Black & Red Bash, need not be present to win. We ask that our students and families sell tickets at $25 each, and all proceeds from the ticket sales go straight to HCA; if each student sold 10 tickets, then the school would earn over $90,000! So the moral of the story is SELL SELL SELL! This money, like all the money raised during the event, goes a long way in furthering our student's education.

In order to sweeten the deal, there are incentives for selling a certain amount of tickets and the highest ticket sells per class and per student for secondary and elementary earn amazing prizes, but the greatest incentive of all is the impact these sales will have on our students' educational programs. The 2017-2018 incentives and rewards that a student and/or class can earn for selling car tickets can be found below.

Donate An Auction Item for The Event:

The last thing that makes this event a huge success is the donations and event sponsorships that our families and friends bring us. All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible, and no item is too small.

HCA families often feel burdened to donate something themselves, so the easiest thing to do is talk to friends, family or businesses that you frequent and ask if they could donate an item, gift certificate or service. From a free massage to a time share in Florida and everything in between, these donations make a huge impact on making the live/silent auction portion of the evening and overall event successful. Did we mention the donation is tax-deductible? Also, for every item you have donated, your name will be entered into a drawing for half-off a tuition! To sponsor the event or donate an item, you can pick up an "Auction Agreement" from the Front Office, the Development Office or download PDF here. Return it filled out with your check or item to the school office. More information on the different sponsorship levels can be found on our Sponsorship page.
