What exactly IS Cardinella?
St John’s Episcopal School’s Annual Benefit – Cardinella - is an evening full of celebration, fellowship, silent and live auctions, the ever popular wine wall, and a luxury getaway opportunity drawing. Funds from this highly anticipated event will be dedicated to transforming your children's classrooms to provide them the exceptional learning environment they deserve.
The Resort at Pelican Hill
Celebrate an evening at Orange County's ultra luxury resort, The Resort at Pelican Hill. Perched high on a hillside offering panoramic coastal views of the Pacific Ocean, the venue offers St. John's guests luxury amenities and top-notch service as we celebrate three defining decades of incredible educational offerings. Book your room here.
Purchase an opportunity drawing ticket(s) to win a luxury getaway. Each ticket includes a glass of champagne when you arrive at the event.
We have a fabulous Silent Auction lined up, offering a range of items from luxury car racing to helicopter tours, and more. The Silent Auction is open to all St. John's families and friends, whether you attend Cardinella or not.
In addition to the Silent Auction, there are also incredible "Live Auction" items available only at Cardinella, the evening of March 30. Prepare to raise your paddles in action-packed bidding for an exquisite selection of exclusive items and experiences- like tickets to cheer on your favorite sports team, or enjoy a concert or show! How about a luxury trip to Baja, CA to dive with Great White Sharks? We have a whole host of unique experiences you'll want to bid on.
Each year St. John's families generously make contributions toward our St. John's Parent Gift. This past year, the Parent Gift funded our beautiful new Learning Commons. This year's 2019 Parent Gift will support our school-wide initiative to revolutionize our classrooms.
