Big Bucks is Coming Back!

The ever-popular Big Bucks is back! Save the date Friday, April 12, 2024! Anyone wanting to help or volunteer in any compacity, please contact Abby Borberg ([email protected]) or Brad Shimmens ([email protected]). We are hosting our first Big Bucks meeting on Monday, April 24, 2023 at 5:30 in Fr. Ahren’s room. We encourage anyone that would like to volunteer to come to the meeting or contact Brad or Abby with any questions.

What is Big Bucks?

"Big Bucks" is a gala-style fundraising event held each spring (prior to COVID). It has been the largest fundraiser for St. Peter taking place for close to 20 years! It is made entirely possible by VOLUNTEERS!

We sell 300 tickets. Each ticket admits two people for dinner, adult drinks, and the chance to win $10,000 through a reverse raffle, or $5000 if the final two people decide to split the pot. Throughout the evening there are also side games and other items for purchase in the silent and live auctions. 

Why do we need it? 

Big Bucks has raised a lot of money over the years to give back to the school for general operating costs, to help with any needs they have for the year--it really helps to make ends meet at the school. It's a great way for families to get involved and make a huge difference!
