Joy is in the Giving!

ANNUAL BENEFIT DINNER

It’s almost here!

This Saturday, March 14, at The Shrine Restaurant in Belleville, we will come together as a community and celebrate all the amazing things that are accomplished at Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School and help make sure that we continue to make a difference for the families we serve. This Annual Fundraiser begins with a Silent Auction/Social Hour starting at 6pm followed by dinner and an Oral Auction.

Thanks to those of you who returned your money for the two tickets for the Annual Benefit Dinner. As you are aware, each family is required to purchase or sell two tickets to the dinner, or pay a $100.00 fundraising fee.

Thanks, also, to those who have volunteered to donate a basket or silent auction item.

Baskets are on display in the main entrance.  For those who plan to donate a basket or another item, please send it no later than Thursday, March 12.

Violinists who are part of the entertainment should be at The Shrine Restaurant by 5:30pm., dressed in black slacks, white shirts/blouses and dark shoes.  Jewelry is limited to stud earrings and a plain watch.  *Please remind your child that this is a privilege and only the “best-version” of themselves will be accepted.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
