Thank you to everyone who made this year's Gala, "Romance in Venice" a success.  Whether through selling raffle tickets, attending, and/or supporting with your gifts or prayers, it was a wonderful celebration for our St. Francis of Assisi community.  We were pleased to see so many of you enjoying this event; connecting with one another as members of our school and parish family!   As the biggest fundraiser for our exciting new school building project, we raised approximately: 

·  $29,000 in sponsorship 

·  $22,000 in our silent and live auctions

·  $13,000 in direct donations to the project

·  additional $$ from our raffle, 50/50 and bar sales, 

We raised over $70,000 for our New School Building Project!

Please help us reach our original goal of raising $80,000.  Perhaps you missed your chance and were unable to attend or were unsuccessful with a silent/live auction bid... If you were not yet able to make your donation to the event, its not too late.  Every gift helps!  We would love to see everyone contributing in some way to achieve our goal!  Please help us reach our goal:  http://www.sfaschool.ca/donate

Every year, we continue to be amazed by the extraordinary work of our parent volunteers.  We are especially grateful to all the gala committee members and volunteers of the event: Lisa Angelillo, Cinnamon Bhayani, Michelle Burns, Kristina Cavallari, Lucia Herdin, Maria McKim, Kerri Nardulli, Aileen Pereira, Shafeen Sarangi, Natalie Smith, Rabecca Talbot, Laurin Thompson, and Christine Vandebeek.  Congratulations to everyone for putting together such a memorable evening! Also, a big thank you to our wonderful MC, Lynn Colliar, Father Gino, the PEC, and all the school staff for their help!  

Gala greetings from Archbishop Miller:  Please see attached letter which was read aloud by Mrs. Sussex to gala attendees. It beautifully captures the Archbishop's support for this important project for the community.
