Our Annual Auction Fundraiser Was Another Great Success
Our biggest and only fundraiser of the year was a Thorough-bred success!
The theme for this year’s Auction was Kentucky Derby. Hats of many colors and shapes accented the country club venue where 240 guests enjoyed the evening. Numerous tables filled with silent auction donations up for bid, lined the room. Guests mingled and perused the items up for grabs. Exciting live auction items were patiently waiting for the bidding to start. The night was filled with elegance, excitement and generous hearts. Everyone in attendance shared a common feeling, a devotion to their child’s school.
Each year the PTA (WHYS) members of Sacred Heart of Jesus School hold an annual Auction where all proceeds benefit the school in numerous ways. This really is the biggest and only fundraiser of the year. The event is much anticipated as it raises funds to assist the school.
Here are a few of the ways the proceeds from the annual Auction benefit Sacred Heart of Jesus School:
- field trips for every grade and every student
- teacher supplies
- playground equipment and enhancements
- a science and computer lab addition
- flooring around the school
- library makeover with an updated book collection
- academic contests
- and so much MORE!
Without this fundraiser, and so many generous people, many of these things could not be offered. We feel blessed to be able to bring these opportunities to the students, teachers and staff of our great school. The academic enhancements we can provide the students is vital to their education. Why talk about the Battle of Lake Erie and Perry’s Monument when you can take students to see the monument in person! Teachers don’t just show their students pictures of Pittsburgh or Columbus, they take them there!
We are truly a blessed parish and school family. We are supported by numerous community members along with members of our parish and school. We can never take for granted all that we are able to offer at Sacred Heart of Jesus School to enhance the learning experience of the students. We can never take for granted the teachers and staff who are so dedicated to providing an exceptional education for all.
Thank you for your support of Sacred Heart, now and in the years to come!
