‘Angel Aid’ Auction to Benefit AHA Tuition Assistance Fund

Demarest, NJ: Power the flight of an Angel by participating in this month’s Angel Aid online auction! Proceeds from this age 21+ event will benefit the Academy of the Holy Angels’ Tuition Assistance Fund, which was established to aid AHA families who are facing health issues, job loss, and economic difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Visit https://angelaid.givesmart.com today to register for the auction and preview the exciting prizes donated by local vendors and members of the AHA community. Offerings include a retro bicycle, jewelry, tutoring services, hotel stays, designer handbags, gift baskets, a golf outing, a personalized parking space at Holy Angels, and more.

Participants may also donate directly to the Tuition Assistance Fund. A generous supporter has pledged to match up to $50,000 in donations.

Bidding will be conducted online and can easily be done on cell phones or tablets. Bids will be accepted from 6 p.m. on Friday, June 12, 2020 until noon on Saturday, June 20, 2020. Winners will receive their prizes at a curbside pickup at Holy Angels, 315 Hillside Avenue in Demarest.

“This is the first time we are doing a virtual auction and we are excited to be able to make the opportunity available to members of our AHA community who will be able to participate remotely, from the comfort and safety of their homes, all for the benefit of AHA,” said AHA Events Coordinator Barbara Burklund. “Our goal is that no Angel's educational journey should be disrupted by unexpected unemployment or financial downturns.”

AHA's main fundraiser, Angelic Evening, which was scheduled for late March, was canceled due to coronavirus concerns. Many individuals who had donated prizes to support this event enthusiastically offered their donations toward Angel Aid in response to the current need. The next Angelic Evening is slated for March 19, 2021 at The Edgewood Country Club.

Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879, the Academy of the Holy Angels is the oldest private girls’ school in Bergen County. While AHA is steeped in Catholic tradition, this prestigious high school serves young women from a broad spectrum of cultural and religious backgrounds. Over time, thousands of women have passed through AHA’s portals. Many go on to study at some of the nation’s best universities, earning high-ranking positions in medicine, government, law, education, public service, business, arts, and athletics. The Academy’s current leaders continue to further the SSND mission to provide each student with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically, by offering a first-rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity, and service to others.
