A delightful evening with Deacon Ron Hansen and Tobias Wolff was had by all at Saint Elizabeth Seton School. Ron and Tobias donated their time to help raise funds that will be used to subsidize our food program at Seton School. We prepare and serve our students a healthy breakfast, lunch and a snack each day and work throughout the year to raise funds to cover this expense!
With more than 150 people in attendance we had a lovely Authors Event. For the early reception our kitchen staff prepared the hors d’houvres, faculty and staff served food and poured wine and our students did a marvelous job leading school tours. We all had an opportunity to get to know and thank our Seton Community for all the help they give us each year.
A humorous reading from both authors and a warm conversation between the two, followed by a question-and-answer session, gave the audience a chance to get to know both Ron and Tobias a little better. Ron and Tobias spent plenty of time mingling with the crowd too!
The Daughters of Charity provide a large portion of support for our school, but we are still very dependent on the support of sponsors, our local community and grants to cover our operating expenses. Our students, families, faculty and staff are all blessed to have that support. Through our enriched program, we expose our students to new concepts and opportunities each day!
This event provided funds to feed students for a month, generated new after school volunteers and was a community event that was enjoyable for all.
