Notre Dame de Sion – 36th Annual Gala Auction

Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland was the site for Notre Dame de Sion’s 36th Annual Gala Auction. The Mardi Gras-themed event featured a three-course dinner, silent and live auctions, a raffle, and dancing to the tunes of the Ernest James Zydeco Band. Bryonha Marie Parham ‘03, a successful actress and singer who has performed on Broadway and in national and international shows, entertained the guests. Judy and Bob Hoehn were honored for more than 20 years of scholarship support, which has helped 75 students receive a Sion education. Proceeds provide support for Sion to provide a high-quality Catholic education.

Katherine Houlehan ‘97, and Brittany Zschoche ‘99


The Sion Drumline, the only all-female drumline in Kansas City, led a second line through the crowd to kick off the festivities.
