2012 St. Ann Sponsor’s Dinner Dance & Auction

St. Ann Sponsor's Dinner Dance & Auction 2012

Dear St. Ann School families, friends & parishioners,

The 41st annual Sponsor’s Dinner Dance & Auction is coming up on Saturday, April 28, 2011.  This is the school’s biggest fundraiser of the year.  Last year we raised an amazing $65,000, which was used to finish updating the Science Lab, purchase 2 additional classroom MIMIO boards and laptops, plaster and repaint the school gym, and refinish some flooring.  In addition, the money raised helps to ensure the financial stability and budget of the school and parish, and take care of many other necessary repairs/maintenance to the school and church … all thanks to many generous donors.

You may not realize it, but you have connections to local and national businesses, individuals, and organizations that may be willing to contribute to this event!

Do you work at a hotel or know someone that does who would donate a stay?  Do you have a connection at one of the airlines who would be willing to give tickets?  Do you have a vacation home/time share you would be willing to donate for others to bid on and enjoy?  Do you have a favorite restaurant, coffee shop, or movie theater that would be willing to donate a gift certificate?  How about a hairdresser, masseuse, craftsman, or contractor that would donate their services?

Please take some time to think about what you do and who you know and how you may be able to help make this year’s event a huge success!

New items and services are always needed to keep the auction going, year after year.  Just call or drop a note through school to one of this year’s auction chairpersons, Kay Dieckmann (381-7201) or Cheri Smith (382-1107) and let us know what you are thinking about.  The deadline for donations is April 4th.  If you are interested in helping out in other ways with this year’s auction, please let us know… new people bring new ideas.

We hope you are able to join us and other St. Ann School parents and parishioners on April 28th  for a fantastic evening of great food, fun, a live band, dancing, and over 175 incredible items and services to bid on!  Don’t miss it!

Cub Scouts + Pie = Sweet Revenge!

Every year the Scouts sell popcorn as a fundraiser.  This year to help encourage more sales, the Cub Scout leaders of our very own Pack 516 challenge the boys by telling them if they raised a certain level of money they would get to throw a pie in their pack leader’s face at a future meeting.

Well, I’m sure you can guess what happened. That’s right, 3 of the packs met the challenge and were rewarded with the opportunity to put a pie in their leader’s face. What follows is a teaser from the sure to be smash hit “Pie Face” featuring our very own scouts from Pack 516. (Anyone know where I can sign up to be a scout? This looks like fun!)

St. Ann Parish Picnic – Photos & Video

Despite Mother Nature doing her best to thwart our efforts the 2011 St. Ann Parish Picnic was held on Saturday – May 14th.  Although the day was rainy and cold people came out to celebrate St. Ann and spend time with friends in a carnival atmosphere.  There were rides for the kids, carnival games, food, live entertainment and even craft vendors selling their wares in the Parish Center.  There was something for everyone!

We hope that all of you had a chance to brave the weather and spend some time with your family and friends in support of the St. Ann Parish. In between rain showers we were able to get a few photos of the picnic.  Here is a video remix of the photos as well as a link to view individual photos online.  (Remember, 50% of any online print purchases goes back into the St. Ann community.)
