Dear St. Perpetua Parents and Friends,
The ribbon has been cut and the finishing touches are underway as we are blessed to be the first event in our new Community Center. But for this night, it is the St. Perpetua Social Club to celebrate "A Night in Havana", our 38th Annual Auction! Along with celebrating, dining, and dancing, the night is about raising funds for our school. We are fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing community, both within and outside of schedule, who have graciously donated many incredible items.
Teachers and staff who have created experiences to share their time with the students, class traditions which capture creativity, love, and the inspiration of our children, and the many parents who have donated time, and/or treasures to help make this event a success! Each day in the many months leading up to tonight, has included planning on many levels. First and foremost, would we really have the auction in the Grand Hall, at our very own venue? Beyond securing this location, so many people worked diligently behind the scene to make this all happen. The support I have received all these people and more does not go unnoticed. I am truly grateful for their help! To Lucy Mason, Cary Tschann, Allison Mein, Chris Flitter, and Alicia Griffith, with your guidance, shared knowledge, and experience, you made this process all worthwhile and I thank you!
So as we gather together to enjoy this evening, we are all working toward a common goal. The gab between tuition and the actual cost to educate each child is over $3000. Let's have our bidding fans ready to help close that gap and make this evening a huge success!
