The 17th Annual St. Francis House Dinner and Auction will be held on Monday, September 21, at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. Doors will open at 5:30 pm with dinner served at 6 pm.
For individuals not able to attend in person, we have added a virtual component to our event. Not only will you be able to watch a livestream of the event, but you will be able to bid on live auction items along with the individuals at the event.
The Dinner and Auction is a chance to come together to celebrate the St. Francis House. Those attending learn more about our continued work to provide a hand up to our guests instead of a hand out. During the event, awards are given out to those making a difference in the lives of our guests. This evening is also a time to educate the community on our needs by raising money for our operations through a live auction and a silent auction.
Due to our generous corporate sponsors, there is no cost for the event!

For the second consecutive year, St. Francis House is partnering with ClickBid Online to offer mobile bidding for this year’s event. This allows individuals the chance to participate in the auctions and fund-a-mission, whether they are at the event, at home or even on vacation.
This year we are requiring bidders to enter their credit card information during the registration process. This will make things a lot easier for bidders during the event. By having that information on file ahead of time, you will be able to start bidding a lot sooner. Then at the end of the night, you will be able to check out right from your phone, mobile device or computer. We understand the sensitivity with providing credit card information online. That is why all credit card information will be deleted from the system when the event is completed.
The St. Francis House has partnered with ClickBid Simple Mobile Giving to provide mobile bidding at the 17th Annual St. Francis House Dinner & Auction.
