weekend and $10,000 at St. Joe fundraiser
MADISON (Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018) – Dak Prescott and Tom Brady signed football jerseys, an Ole Miss baseball weekend, a one-week vacation at Gulf Shores and $10,000 in cash could be yours at the 2018 St. Joseph Catholic School Drawdown.
Tickets for the Saturday, Feb. 3, event are on sale at the school and online. For $130 a couple, guests have a shot at a $10,000 grand prize as well as an opportunity to bid on silent and live auctions that include the autographed jerseys, baseball weekend, Gulf Shores vacation and more.
“We have an incredible array of prizes that anyone would love to win,” Principal Dena Kinsey said. “And with a wide assortment of gourmet food available that night, this is a great way to spend time with friends and family while supporting the No. 1-rated Catholic high school in Mississippi.”
Jeans, Jazz & Bruin Blues – St. Joseph Catholic School’s largest annual fundraiser – is Saturday, Feb. 3, 6:30-9:30 p.m., on the school campus. Money raised by the event will be used to enhance student educational experiences.
In addition to silent and live auctions, guests also will enjoy an open bar and gourmet food – seafood gumbo, fried catfish, lamb shots, beef tenderloin, desserts and more – prepared by the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church chapter of the Knights of Columbus.
St. Joseph Catholic School provides students in Grades 7-12 a rigorous college preparatory education grounded in the teachings of the Catholic church. The school is in Madison on Mississippi 463, about a mile west of Interstate 55.
St. Joseph was founded in 1870 by the Sisters of Mercy. The school is accredited by the Mississippi Department of Education and AdvancED; Niche.com named St. Joe Mississippi’s No. 1 Catholic high school in 2016 and again in 2017.
