Annual Gala

Dear Parents/Guardians and Friends of Holy Name School,

Our school’s annual gala is fast approaching us, and the gala committee is reaching out to everyone for donations for our auction. This year, we are asking that students' parents/guardians each donate a scratch ticket or two to our lottery basket. Everyone can send them in with the students or drop them off to the office with the label of attention gala committee. If anyone prefers to drop off a gift card or certificate to the school, we would also appreciate those. We are always looking for items for the auction. Without your help, this fundraiser would not be able to happen. We are looking forward to everyone attending our gala. It is a great night with food, dancing, and lots of entertainment. Please purchase your tickets soon from the school or contact a gala committee person.

Please see our gala donation request letter for more information, and thank you for all of your support!
