The Central Catholic mystique was alive and well during its 24th annual Viking Victory Auction, where close to 700 alum and their significant others were taking over the Westin for mini class reunions and some good old-fashioned dirt digging.

“We can get out the disciplinary record,” laughed school principal Brother Robert Schaefer as he teased politico Corey O'Connor.

Among those embracing the “Great Gatsby”-themed soiree were co-chairs Bob andLinda Buzzelli and Bob andMarilee Tudi, as well as school prez Brother Patrick Duffy and Bill Sproule (His father, son, and grandson also attended, making them the first family to have four generations graduate from the school.).

Funds from the auction support various endeavors for the prestigious Oakland-based institution, including tuition assistance, technology and capital improvements.
