Pioneer Premier Auction Announcement

Pioneer Premier Auction Announcement

With concerns about COVID-19 on the rise, we want to personally update you on the Pioneer Premier Auction.

On Friday, Governor Tim Walz declared a peacetime state of emergency, urging all organizations to cancel or postpone large gatherings until further notice.

As a result, we've had to make a difficult decision: we will not hold the Pioneer Premier Auction as planned on April 25th. We acknowledge that invitations have just arrived in your mailbox, but the Auction Committee is working diligently on an alternative event. Stay tuned for an announcement on Thursday, April 2nd at 10:00am when we will outline all the details. If you have purchased event tickets or a sponsorship for the Auction, the Committee will be in touch regarding our plans. The Pioneer Premier Raffle will still happen on April 25th. If you would like to support the Hill-Murray community, we encourage you to purchase a raffle ticket on our website.

The Pioneer Premier Auction raises over $1,000,000 annually to support teacher salaries, classroom resources, access for families who could not otherwise afford a Catholic education, as well as the innovative programming that makes Hill-Murray unique.

We can not thank you enough for your unwavering support of our Hill-Murray students and faculty. Without you, none of this would be possible. We look forward to sharing our plans on April 2nd. We may not be celebrating in person but we will come together as a community and share our love for this school!

If you have any questions, please contact Chris Zupfer at or 651-748-2402.

Go Pioneers!
