The Alumni Association of Thomas More Prep-Marian is proud to sponsor the 49th Annual Auction for Christian Education (ACE). From the first auction in 1975 to 2022, ACE has raised $11,868,702.18 for Thomas More Prep-Marian.

The Hays business community, TMP-Marian parents, alumni, and friends have worked many years together with the Capuchin friars and Agnesian sisters and now the Diocese of Salina to keep the dream of a Catholic educational option alive for Hays, Ellis County, and western Kansas. Thanks to you, our alumni, and many others in the business and professional community, ACE is a continuing testimony to your support of, and belief in, our mission. Our gracious ACE 2023 hosts are Dan '64 & Judy '64 Dischner and Glen '67 & Anita Neuburger.
