As our single largest benefit for the parish and school, funds raised at the Ball go directly to improving the quality of education we can provide for our children, and parish projects and groups which support the environment in which we worship.
Here is a little test to see if you should attend this year’s event. If you have a pen you can keep track of your score. Ready? First question:
1. Are you one of the following:
b. Parent of a student
c. Ever been a student
d. Have ever gone to Mass
e. Does your last name begin with a vowel?
f. Does your last name begin with a consonant?
2. Do you like to have fun?
3. Was the last time you went dancing outside of a wedding called “a prom”?
4. Would you like to win one of the following:
a. A pair of Cubs vs. Sox tickets
b. A $500 furniture shopping spree
c. Bread for a year from Panera
d. A wine-tasting for 25
e. 15 yoga classes
And our final question:
5. Are you breathing?
If you answered YES to any of these questions then you should attend this year’s Blacktop Ball on May 12, featuring a new auctioneer, new auction Items, and a whole lot of fun!
