The GraND Knight is the only major fundraising event sponsored entirely by the Parents Association.

This year’s GraND Knight, "Rock the Knight Away", takes place on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at Anthony’s Ocean View. The night features "text-to-bid" silent and "basket raffle" auctions, along with fabulous food and drinks, and live entertainment provided by the Rum Runners.  The evening culminates with the GraND Raffle drawing featuring three outstanding prizes: $10,000, $2,500 and $1,000 Visa gift cards!

As a prelude to the GraND Knight, there is also an online auction that runs for one week before the festivities at Anthony’s. This auction is affectionately known as "NDbay" and includes a great selection of items for bidding by parents, alumni, and others throughout ND Nation.  "NDbay" will run Friday, February 24th at 8:00 AM - Friday, March 3rd at 8:00 PM.

The GraND Knight is a huge success every year due to the organization and hard work of our parent volunteers. In addition, we count on the support of our families to donate auction items and sell raffle tickets. The proceeds from this event directly benefit all students by supporting their academic and co-curricular programs.
