It is almost time for the August 15 $1,000 Early Bird drawing!  If you have not bought a ticket or if you want an additional one, there is still time.  We have sold 474 tickets so far.  This is down slightly from last year, but this means your chances are still great to win $1,000 or more in the remaining 6 drawings.  All donations are clear profit, which means that if you buy a $100 ticket, $50 goes to the school and $50 to the parish.  What better way to donate than to have 6 chances to win even more money!  A part of your winnings could be donated back to the parking lot fund, or you can keep it.  It is a great way to donate but get a chance to win even more.  If your ticket is drawn on August 15, it goes back in the drawing on September 15, and then back in for the Grand Prize drawings on October 7 at the Holy Name Trivia Night.We will not sell more than 600 total tickets, and you can get them at the parish office or by contacting Staci Wittenauer ( or 618.791.7131).

Thank you for your support.  Good luck!  Staci Wittenauer
