Raffle Tickets – Ice Cream Winners

Thank you to all the students and families who sold raffle tickets for the St. Patrick Festival this year!  We almost doubled our total from last year!  The total number of tickets sold was 4,036.  Fourth grade came in first place, selling 1,095 or 64% and first grade came in second with 923 or 49%.  Since the classes did so well, the festival committee decided that all classes should be awarded ice cream!  This was the best year ever for selling tickets.   Due to the extended school closure, a decision will be made in the coming weeks on how to give out the reward.  Congratulations!

SCRIP

What is Scrip? “Scrip” turns everyday shopping into cash for the St. Patrick Church and School. Purchase gift cards at face value in advance to use at checkout, instead of paying with credit, debit card, check or cash.

How Does It Work? Purchase gift cards at face value from local merchants who designate their own discount percentage ranging from 1.5% to 30%. The discount amount translates to profit for the St. Patrick!

  • $50 Raising Canes gift card at 30% = $15.00 St. Patrick profit
  • $50 Marcus Theatres gift card at 8% = $4 St. Patrick profit
  • $100 Walmart gift card at 2.% = $2.50 St. Patrick profit

Click here for the SCRIP order form.  SCRIP can be purchased at the parish office or after weekend masses.
