HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Anchor Ball Fundraising Goal 2019 = $185,000*

 

Our goal is for every family to contribute a gift of $50 or greater.
This is why we ask every family to participate to help make a difference!
Anchor Ball funds go to the school’s operating budget, which means these funds
directly help keep ALL of our educational costs down

 

*This number is in addition to the much-needed and very important “Tuition Assistance Ask” during the live auction.

 

TOP WAYS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT THIS YEAR’S EVENT:

1.      Donate item(s) during Gift Gathering January

2.      UNDERWRITING is important as it supports a huge portion of our event.  Check out all the underwriting OPPORTUNITIES (which includes a chance to buy the bar and naming rights to a craft cocktail).

3.      Volunteer your time and talents in assisting with Anchor Ball.

4.      Buy tickets to attend and then bid on show stopping items featured at the event.  Coming Soon!

 

Did you know?  The cost of your Anchor Ball ticket only covers the fun of the party itself?  In order to truly make our fundraising goal we must have sponsors, underwriters, and generous bidders.  Even if you are unable to make it to the party we still need your help to create our auctions and support our underwriting.


Thank you for supporting Anchor Ball 2019. 
We appreciate your gifts to make our event a success!

This is a PTO sponsored event and all proceeds benefit the students of
St. Junipero Serra Catholic School.  All purchases are non-refundable.  #SERRASTRONG
