Letter from the Chair

We can't wait to welcome you to "A Lucky Knight for St. Ambrose" on March 3rd for a night of fellowship and fundraising for our wonderful school! Be ready to open your wallets and raise those paddles during our live auction led once again by professional auctioneer, Chris Rasmus of Rasmus Auctions. Get in a bidding war over the awesome donations from our teachers, such as the library pajama party with Mrs. Healy & Mrs. Rowley or lunch for 3 at American Girl Café with Ms. Beaulieu. Try your luck and pull a gift card for $100 to Flynn O'Hara or snag a treasure in the pot of souvenirs. Who will be the lucky raffle winners of dinner at the Inn at Little Washington, 50/50, or jewelry? You don't want to miss this memorable evening!
 
Thanks so much for your support,
Cindy Hollcraft

Photo Booth

For a small fee, grab your friends and create fun group pictures using traditional props or St. Patrick's Day props.

It promises to be entertaining and you walk away with fun keepsakes from the evening!

A huge thank you to Gabriel Catering for agreeing to offer catering services at a discount for our special Irish evening. He will be providing a choice of Shepherd's Pie or Chicken Marsala with Orzo pasta and green beans. A garden salad and rolls will also be included. Rumor has it that Mrs. Rowley will be making a batch of her mother's Irish potato and leek soup for a limited number of tastings!
