Monsignor Sean Acton Foundation. Is a permanent investment fund that ensures a stable annual income for educating and developing the members of St. Dorothy Parish community intellectually, spiritually, physically, ethically and socially. The foundation considers one of the most important parts of the endowment mission to be the passing on of Catholic values.
The Endowment Fund Committee has committed $40,000 to the 2012-2013 school budget in an effort to keep Catholic educaton affordable. The Endowment Fund is celebrating a twenty-fifth year anniversary.
Countdown to the 25th Annual St. Dorothy . Endowment Dinner Dance and Auction!
My child loves free dress. Is it true that if I attend my child will get a free dress pass? What if I have more than one child at the school?
Yes, all your children will get a FREE DRESS PASS to be used on Monday, October 29th. Also, the class with the most parents attending will get a pizza party on Monday, October 29th, so make sure to tell all parents to attend!
Why do I have to pay $100 if I’m not going to the dinner?
The primary function of the Dinner Dance is as a fundraiser. While we do hope that everyone would want to attend, the event serves to raise money for the Endowment Fund which benefits all St. Dorothy students. Therefore, all school families are required to participate whether they attend or not. The Endowment Fund provided $40,000 to St. Dorothy School last year.
If I don’t go, can I give my ticket to someone else?
Because this event is a fundraiser, we hope that all families understand that we need to maximize the money that we raise. Although you will not be able to give your ticket to another family, you can donate your ticket for use by a teacher, priest, or deacon.
I own a business, but I don’t know if it would be worth advertising at the dinner. What is the benefit of placing an ad at the event?
The program is given out to all attendees, which is usually about 200 school and community members. Event-goers refer to the program all night long, looking through it for entertainment information and auction items. Your business’ name would also be listed on our on-line auction site (the site will be explained in detail in next week’s Auction Newsletter), which will be accessed by school, parish, and alumni families and friends.
The ads are very affordable; for just $35, you can get a business card size ad in the program. We encourage our school families to patronize the establishments of our supporters.
What kind of Raffle and Silent/Live Auction items are available so far?
