On March 16th the students of St. Anselm Catholic Academy (SACA) received a very special gift from Academy families and friends. The evening, which is a major fundraiser to support academic programs at the Academy, featured an array of 155 amazing “Super” raffle prizes ranging from gift baskets containing gorgeous bags (Longchamp/Coach) to an iPad Mini. If this weren’t enough, there were also “Grand” prizes (including a 55” TV and Caribbean Vacations) and “Luxury” prizes (a Gucci bag or $1,000 Amex gift card). Finally, if you were feeling especially lucky, you could buy tickets for the 50/50, Money Globe, or Occasion Board.
There was truly something for everyone who attended the “Ladies’ Night Extravaganza”, which was held for the first time at Gargiulo’s Restaurant.
Wonderful fundraisers such as the Ladies’ Extravaganza take months of planning and reaching out to organizations for donations, days of combining gifts to make perfect baskets and then hours and hours of wrapping these prizes and creating an informative program guide. We are grateful to have so many dedicated parents who gave their time and talents to provide such a wonderful event. Thanks as well to Co-Chairs Rosa Stagnitta and Rosie Byron for their leadership and Principal James McKeon, the SACA Board members and President John Quaglione, and finally Msgr. Maloney and the St. Anselm priests for their continued support. Finally, we thank all the SACA families and friends for attending this important fundraiser. We can’t wait for next year!
All the best,
The St. Anselm Publicity Committee
