Save the Date for Spring Virtual Event – Saturday, March 13th, 2021!

As promised, here is the information regarding our upcoming annual fundraiser, ‘Around the World in 80 Minutes.’ This will be a virtual event that will give families and friends a fun-filled evening at home with a live trivia competition, gift boxes filled with international treats to enjoy, as well as live bidding in our silent auction. 
 Our St. William Fundraising Committee is busy contacting local businesses for gift certificates, products, experiences or cash donations, but we need the help of all our school families! If you own a family business, work for a business, frequent a business and/or know somebody that works for a business that may be interested in donating to or sponsoring our event please contact Roseanne Diponio at or use the BELOW donation/sponsorship forms. We depend on the support of our community to help our school thrive! 

Stay tuned for more event details and ticket information, coming soon!

Update on our event results From LAST YEAR’S event!

Our Mardi Gras – Sweepstakes event at Cantoro’s was well attended February 8th – about 190 in attendance!  All of the numbers are not in yet but it was certainly a success and will likely bring in almost $31,000 to help close the tuition gap. 

We are grateful to the team of parent volunteers that worked very hard to create this wonderful evening – Ann Kenyon, Dina Karim, Lisa Collias, Cyndy Marsh, Samantha Wren (and husband Andrew!), Roseanne Diponio, Erica Cusick, Christine Roe, Melanie Maas, Martina Nakash, Nelda Shunyia, and Lori Zoulek. Special thank you also to Monica Logan for her Summer Bash table!

The committee worked hard on donation acquisition and were able to exceed last year’s auction by $2,000 but the participation for the Sweepstakes Raffle fell short with only 56% of the families selling all tickets. Fundraising is not easy but a necessary part of education – public or private.

Thanks again,

The St. William Mardi Gras Beer & Wine Tasting Committee                 

Co-chairs – Lisa Collias, Ann Kenyon, Rosanne Herrick, and Lori Zoulek
