St. Edmond Ball succeeds

To the editor:

As co-chairs of the 31st Friends of St. Edmond Ball, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of wonderful people who made this year’s event such a success. We could not do this without the support of the St. Edmond faculty and staff, the staff of Holy Trinity Parish, or the volunteers who dedicated many hours of hard work. Their Gael spirit was evident in every part of the preparations for the Ball.

We are also very grateful for the many raffle and auction prizes that were donated by our individual sponsors and businesses, as well as the financial gifts from our generous donors. St. Edmond Catholic Schools could not exist without the support of our families, alumni, and the community. The $230,000 raised by this event will ensure that the students of St. Edmond receive an outstanding Catholic education so they may, in turn, offer the same opportunities to future students.

We feel truly blessed to have the privilege of being a part of the great tradition of the Friends of St. Edmond Ball. Go Gaels
