Saint Edmund's annual fundraiser, An Elegant Evening, will be held on Saturday, May 8th. This is our parish's major fundraiser to support church operations and our school. Although it's a few months away, we need your assistance now. Here are some ways in which you can donate time, talent and resources to support YOUR parish:
1) Volunteer for one of the Elegant Evening committees: Auction, Alumni, Raffle, Creative, or Reservations. The time commitment required for each committee varies, but none are too time-consuming.
2) Help us locate underwriters: If your employer would be willing to place an advertisement in the ad book, underwrite the cost of some of the event's food or music, or match a donation to the fundraiser, your input would be greatly appreciated. An Elegant Evening committee member can even speak to a human resources representative from your employer if you'd like.
3) Buy a raffle ticket: Raffle tickets for a cash drawing will be sold after each mass starting in a few weeks. The drawing will be held on the night of the Elegant Evening. You need not be present to win.
4) Join us for the event: You have the option to share a table with other SEYA members. A sit-down dinner, silent and live auction, and music and dancing, comprise the event. It promises to be a great time!
