Father Adrian Education Fund raised to date:  $125,140
Goal for 2009-2010:  $450,000

The publication of  the new Benedictine Annual Report is underway.  We hope to provide this report to you by March 2010.

The Father Adrian education fund supports and supplements everything we do at Benedictine.  Your support is much needed and appreciated.  To make an online gift, click here.

  


The Benedictine Blast is by far our largest fundraiser of the year.  Last year, we netted $110,000!  This was the largest amount raised from any Blast event!  I am very proud of this.  We have a great volunteer committee that is working extremely hard, but they need some help.  With tough economic times we NEED for more auction items and sponsorships.  I am asking for you to consider donating or sponsoring the Blast.

We have many sponsorship opportunities (click on this link to take you to our sponsorship package)  A sponsorship, to help underwrite the cost involved, at any level, would be greatly appreciated.  We have come up with a fun way to be  able to sponsor the event by having Derby Games.  There will be horse racing at the Blast and you can "buy" a horse and this gets you into the Blast for free!

We also need donations for the auctions.  Ideas to trigger some thoughts on where to start:
~ANY TRIPS, SECOND HOMES, ANYWHERE
~Week of camp, babysitting, riding lessons, music lessons
~Round of golf for four and hour private clinic from your club and pro you've been taking lessons from for years
~$100.00 gift certificate from the wine store you frequent...or a dozen bottles of good wine
~Catering or bartender/cocktails from your last party, wedding
~Wine tour and tasting for eight people at your friends winery
~Clay/Pigeon Shooting for eight people where you shoot a couple times a month, or one of your friends owns
~Cooking class and/or wine tasting from your friend or restaurant you go to every month
~Tickets to college, professional games (these go over huge with our group)
~BBQ from where you get your tailgating food, and Country Band, from someone's cousin, friend,
~A guest spot in a TV show, movie or on the radio
~Progressive Dinner Party for 12 in your neighborhood
~ANY TRIPS, SECOND HOMES, ANYWHERE

Thank you for your consideration of these requests and I appreciate your support of the Advancement Office at Benedictine High School and the Blast!
