The 2015 Roaring 20s Gala was a roaring success!
To say that the 2015 St. Bridget School Gala; The Roaring 20’s was a success would be an understatement! The evening was so moving, powerful, fun, and truly a blessing to this school. From the theme of the Roaring 20’s to the mood being set by the River Falls High School Jazz Band, it truly was a remarkable event. Everyone came together to support our school. In Mr. Slaikeu’ s speech he stated “Change can create emotions like sadness, loss, discomfort and fear. But when you support our kids and this school, you change lives! And you do it for the better. You become the creator of feelings like happiness, generosity, encouragement, pride, and love”. We raised approximately $138,000 (and $1 million dollars over our 11 year history!) on this wonderful evening. That money will help change this school and its students in a very positive way.
The money will be used to continue our efforts to provide the most up-to date technology to our students and teachers (and training for that technology). Also we will be doing a massive landscaping project that will increase the curb appeal of St. Bridget’s. Many other projects will be done and resources purchased throughout the year to make sure all students have access to the best educational supplies and resources. As always, a huge thank you to everyone who helped in any way. We have so many very generous people who support our school. With all of you, we change lives.
