The first HOPE Dinner & Auction, an idea originated by, then principal, Sister Dorothy Zeller, was a spaghetti supper and auction in 1992 at the Knights of Columbus Hall. This event continues to grow each year and proves itself to be an evening of fun, fellowship, fine dining, and especially, an essential supporting foundation for St. John's Academy, its staff, students and their families.

If you can help support in any way, please contact Sarah Sankey, Advancement & Marketing by emailing: sarah.sankey@k12.nd.us or call St. John's Academy at 701-252-3397.
