As President of Schools, one major fund raising project I direct is our annual fundraising gala. Our gala includes dinner, dancing, and a live/silent auction. One year I purchased a garden statue of Our Lady. I sought several local business sponsors who donated some outdoor garden pots and some gorgeous multi-colored roses. We grouped those items, the statue (we bought it on sale from Toscano) and the pots filled with rich soil and roses donated by a community business. Together, these items brought in a nice dollar amount for our schools to help promote Catholic Education in South Texas.
