FGR Hosts Light In the World: A fundraising event and online auction
In lieu of our annual dinner auction, FGR is excited to present Light In the World: A fundraising event and online auction. On Saturday, October 17, 2020. From 5:30 – 8:00 pm, supporters will drive-thru at FGR to pick up delicious pre-purchased meals. Seating will be available under the tent for those who wish to picnic at FGR in a socially-distanced manner. If you choose to dine at home, purchase dinners for the whole family. Meals are $50 each for the first two dinners and $25 each for each additional meal. Choose our American Meal featuring pork ribs, macaroni and cheese and corn on the cob, or our International Meal which includes kielbasa and sauerkraut with potato cheese pierogis and a squash sauté. Bottles of red and white wines which pair perfectly with our dinner offerings are also available. Visit fgrhs.org/auction by October 7 to purchase your meals. A festive atmosphere will await you at pick up.
Auction chair and FGR parent, Carolyn Palka, speaks to the theme of this year’s event, “We really wanted to highlight the universality of our Catholic faith and to point out that in these unusual times, FGR is a light of hope in the world. We see this light in our faculty who are all working to bring an excellent Catholic education to our students and in our students who are being formed to be lights in the world in Christ’s image as they work toward their future goals in a supportive environment at FGR,” she said. “Even though we cannot gather together for a fun evening in support of FGR this year, we can work to bring the community together in a unique way by offering this drive-thru and online bidding experience.”
Sponsors will receive recognition on our website and in an event program and online auction attendees will be able to bid on some select and unique items beginning on Friday evening, October 16 at 6:00 pm and continuing until 9:00 pm on Saturday, October 17.
Also available will be the opportunity to donate to our Scholarship Appeal. Donors can help families provide an academically excellent Catholic education for more students through our scholarship appeal with a tax-deductible donation.
Especially now, we need more Light in the World. Let FGR continue to be that light for our students, families, community, and world. Click here for more information and to order your meals today.
