#iGiveCatholic is the first-ever online giving day for the Catholic community. It is a call to share of our blessings with the Church and those the Church helps and supports in our communities. This year, #iGiveCatholic is being celebrated by the Diocese of Jackson along with five other dioceses. The goal of the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day is to inspire our Catholic community to come together with giving in support of organizations that shape our souls: our parishes, schools, ministries and not-for-profit organizations. #iGiveCatholic’s goal is to deliver $1,500,000 to our Catholic organizations in a 24-hour period.
So, on November 29th visit www.igivecatholic.org and search for Annunciation Catholic School. Please consider giving a minimum donation of $25.
Out of town or busy on #GivingTuesday, November 29th? No problem! Schedule your gift (today or beginning November 18th) by visiting http://iGiveCatholic.org and your card will be automatically charged on #GivingTuesday, November 29th!
On November 11th, we will hold our Annual Art Auction with a Night at the Museum theme at the Trotter Convention Center. The event will begin at 7:00pm. The funds raised by this event will support our commitment to providing the highest quality education possible for our students.
Event tickets are now available! Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. You do not want to miss the chance to see the class art projects your students have already been working on for the event. Contact the school office to purchase your tickets today!
Continue to sell those raffle tickets! The grand prize drawings will take place the night of the Art Auction. Grand Prize #1 is an iRobot Roomba donated by Dr. and Mrs. Robert Jones. Grand Prize #2 is one semester of free tuition. You do not have to be present to win. Tickets should be turned in to the office by November 10th. Feel free to make as many copies of the raffle ticket sheet as you wish or call the office for additional tickets. The student/family with the most ticket sales will win a gift certificate to the Uniform Company.
We need sponsors! If you would like to sponsor this event please see the sponsor form that was sent home in brown envelopes last Monday or contact Katie Fenstermacher at email@example.com.
