Help make Mardi Gras magical for St. Mary's students
Holding a Mardi Gras celebration and fundraiser isn’t an easy feat, especially for educators whose first priority is teaching children. That’s why officials at St. Mary of the Assumption are asking local businesses and individuals for donations.
The Mardi Gras Dinner, Dance, and Auction is the school’s largest fundraiser. This year’s proceeds will go toward building a shade structure for the school’s new outdoor eating area. The fundraiser also helps keep St. Mary’s tuition affordable.
Examples of potential services donated include gardening; event planning; web-page development; medical procedures, such as dental or optometry work; fitness/personal training; printing; maintenance; and advertising services.
Examples of potential items donated include travel (airline tickets, hotel room, vacation rental); technology; dinners; jewelry; landscaping; photography packages; office supplies; beverages; and art.
People interested in making a donation can call the school at 925-6713 or drop items off there, 424 E. Cypress St., from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
