On October 13, 2018, the Father Silva Education Foundation will be hosting its second Oktoberfest at the St. Stanislaus Cathoic Community gym. This fundraising event was very successful and enjoyed by all who attended.
We are seeking sponsorships and/or a donation of items to be used in our silent auction. A sponsorship is a donation of $300.00 which will include two (2) tickets or $500.00 which will include four (4) tickets, signage at our event and publication in our news letter. Any donation will help and is very much appreciated.
In recent years the Foundation has funded many facility improvements, new computer programs for education, and tuition assistance. This year all proceeds will help support St. Stanislaus School through our endowment fund, facility and safety improvements, books and education, and tuition assistance to families in need.
Your donation is greatly appreciated by all of the students, staff, and parents. Our school is primarily funded by the students’ families, parish, and donations from our supporting community. Your tax-deductible donation will help us meet our expenses for the evening, have a successful event, and more importantly, help ensure the future success of our school.
Ticket prices are $35.00 (you may purchase online below) in advance or $40.00 at the door if still available.
If you have any questions or would like tickets to this event, please contact President Danay Manseau at (209) 585-5403. To help sponsor the event or donate items for the silent auction, please fill in the appropriate form (right), or download here.
