Despite the rainy evening, over 170 people attended and celebrated the Auction Gala on Friday, May 10th at Brookfield Country Club for St. Mary’s!
We want to extend our sincere appreciation to all who attended the event that evening, sent in donations for both silent and live auction items, hosted gift gathering parties, worked on the event committee team and volunteered that evening. An event and fundraiser of this size, could not be the success that it is without your generous gifts of time, talent and treasure.
A special thank you to our advertisers & sponsors, your continued support is gratefully appreciated!
Last but certainly not least, we would like to thank Amy Jensen & Janice O’Brien for their many hours invested in Co-Chairing this event for St. Mary’s in order to guarantee its success!
As the largest fundraiser for our parish and school community, proceeds significantly offset operating costs, campus improvements and support our ministries throughout the year. That evening, “Raise the Paddle,” raised additional funds specifically designated to upgrade the entire campus PA Security System.The Current PA System is outdated and over 50 years old. We have some fundraising still to go on this project, but the Raise the Paddle and Auction gave us a great start!
Our church and school mission is dependent on the support of friends and families in so many ways. Be assured that your generosity and spirit will continue to be felt daily throughout the entire community, and that you are all being remembered in our daily prayers of Thanksgiving.
