What a night our “Rock Around the Clock” Dinner & Auction turned out to be! With the guests in leather jackets, poodle skirts and cardigans, a 1950s diner menu and a rock and roll soundtrack, it was a great evening in support of Catholic education!
The vintage cars parked outside Mattie Hall set the scene, and enthusiastic bidding by our great supporters made the night financially successful. Funds raised are an integral part of our budget. Proceeds will exceed $64,000 in net profit to our school.
We also raised $12,550 through Fund-A-Need, to complete a beautiful and functional outdoor learning area in our Annex courtyard. The finished space will contain a shaded picnic area under an arbor, benches for an outdoor classroom, planter boxes for a student-centered garden, sustainable landscape features, and space for older and younger students to partner in exploring science, reading stories, and enjoying God’s creation in the midst of our urban campus.
