The 3rd Annual St. Francis of Assisi Gala will be held on Saturday March 12, 2016 at LaVera Party Center. We will continue on our year-long theme to “Live Like Francis” by recognizing individuals and families who have unconditionally shown this spirit of giving, by going above and beyond. This event is guaranteed to inspire many while at the same time show real life examples of why we all come together as a parish, school and community as a whole. We are honoring the following for their sincere support and commitment in the “Live Like Francis” way of life:
Cindy D’Alessandro • John & Catharine Zbiegien • Phillip & Juanita Campanella
This annual event supports our continued efforts to educate and inspire all through the church, school and community as a whole. Thanks to the generosity of our school and parish families, benefactors and corporate sponsors, we have raised more than $200,000.
The annual gala was created for the purpose of raising funds for the school and church and to honor individuals or families who have truly shown us all what it means to give and inspire in the St. Francis of Assisi community. Past honorees include Fr. James Caddy and the Nacy Panzica family.
St. Francis of Assisi relies on the kindness of individual donors, local businesses and our community partners for donations of items for our auctions, ads in our event program and sponsorships. This year our goal is to use proceeds from the event to expand our STEM program, aid in the development of our youth ministry initiatives and increase outreach for other parish ministries.
Every gift, no matter the size, demonstrates a collective commitment to the education of our students and the development of our parish ministries. Your participation is as important as the amount of your gift because it inspires others to give.
Thank you for your prayers and support in continuing our efforts to inspire many to lead by example and make a impact for many to learn from and pass down from generation to generation.
