Teamwork makes the dream work...especially when you are tearing up the old playbook. And all that teamwork added up to an answer to our prayers. Prayers that this would work, that people would be interested, that people would notice, that people would be moved to give even during a pandemic and economic crisis. Words cannot adequately express the level of gratitude we feel to each and every one of you.
We raised more than $100,000 to support Immaculata's school programs, curriculum and operations PLUS An unprecedented display of rapid generosity in our Raise the Paddle appeal for special areas. Tuition Assistance: $14,620 STEM/Technology: $11,202 Arts/Humanities: $5,235 Athletics/Playground: $3,435
On behalf of everyone who benefits from your generosity, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
