For more than four decades, hundreds of guests have taken a ride on our Chemin de Fer charity train—the Academy’s largest fundraiser of the year. Held the first Saturday in May, Chemin de Fer is a journey to a fascinating destination—the Kentucky Derby, the Orient, Tuscany, New York City or Paris, to name a few. It’s also an opportunity to win exciting and one-of-a-kind auction prizes, enjoy an elegant sit-down dinner, and visit with Academy parents and friends, all while supporting the important work of Sacred Heart education here at the Academy of the Sacred Heart.

The Academy’s 43rd annual Chemin de Fer dinner auction on May 6, 2017 will be a nod to our upcoming Bicentennial year.  “France: Our Story Begins” will take us to our roots, the home of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne.

Deep gratitude to Elizabeth Grygo and David Smith, who will be reprising their roles as Auction Chairs, and Rick and Megan (Kahn ’93) Lee, Co-Chairs.

Fittingly, the evening’s Honorary Chairs will be the Religious of the Sacred Heart. All RSCJ who have been affiliated with the Academy through the years have been invited to attend this very special Chemin de Fer. You won’t want to miss it!

Our Chemin BidPal website is now live.
Check it out to purchase ASH 300 tickets, make a contribution, and more.
