Alumni Executive Council


September 25th – October 3rd

Begins Online Tomorrow!

The highly-popular Laurentian Silent Auction is now in its 3rd year!  Online bidding begins tomorrow, Friday, September 25th at Noon, and will end the following weekend, on Saturday, October 3rd at 10 pm, during Family Weekend.

All Laurentians -- alumni, parents, and friends -- will receive an email on the 25th with a LINK to begin perusing the fabulous items online.  You may also access the Silent Auction website through the Alumni Association page, or the Family Weekend page on the St. Lawrence website.  

Once you’re on the auction website, it will be easy to begin placing your bids!

When you bid, your name will be put into a drawing – the first 159 people drawn will receive a St. Lawrence “famous” Pub Cookie!   (159 is the number of years since St. Lawrence was founded in 1856.)

In addition, there will be $10 raffle tickets available online for the new APPLE IPAD Pro – so, even if you aren’t the high bidder on your favorite items, you still have a chance to win the iPad, and at the same time, you’re helping support the great work of the Alumni Council.

There are over 100 fabulous items this year, all donated by St. Lawrence Alumni Executive Council members, Parents Committee members, plus Laurentian alumni, parents and friends from near and far!  

Here’s a sampling of some of the great items that will be available:

  • Stays at special places, including vacation homes in Steamboat, Colorado, Sugarloaf, Maine, Londonderry, VT and Lake Sunapee, NH, and at wonderful inns like Canton’s 24 East Main B&B, Alexandria Bay’s Bonnie Castle, and Lake Placid’s Mirror Lake Inn, plus a vacation at St. Lawrence’s iconic Adirondack Great Camp Canaras!
