What I really like about the gala is that
we’re all here to celebrate the students at Valley Catholic School and carry out
the mission of the sisters. The number of sisters here, the number of faculty
members here really emphasizes how much we care about our kids. It’s very
exciting for us to have this event every year. There’s so much work that goes into
it and people volunteer and they donate things. It really is a wonderful
community effort and it does wonderful things for helping our students to
continue a good education at Valley Catholic. All the students are really
appreciative for the money that’s donated because it gives them more
opportunities. This all benefits our students and it keeps our community
together and it maintains diversity on campus. Good evening, everybody. Our first item is the golden ticket, is that right? It is the golden ticket. If you want a live auction item tonight for $100, here they come. Ready? I’m going to read them off right now… My favorite part of the evening is the
Light a Fire paddle raise. I just love the energy that comes off of that. The Light
a Fire appeal benefits all of our students who are on tuition assistance.
And really and truly that is what we are about at Valley Catholic; helping
students who want to receive a Valley Catholic education receive one.
