Com­mu­nity shows its sup­port for Bas­ket Raf­fle

The Phoenix - - COMMUNITY - —Sub­mit­ted by Lau­ren Ma­chita

The an­nual Holy Cross Bas­ket Raf­fle is not just a school event, it’s a com­mu­nity event! So many friends of the Holy Cross fam­ily at­tended to show their sup­port. Many school fam­i­lies and lo­cal busi­nesses do­nated. Stu­dents vol­un­teered, weav­ing through the crowd of 500 guests to de­liver an ex­cit­ing prize to its win­ner. Pope John Paul II High School opened their doors, trans­form­ing the gym into “A Boun­ti­ful Fall Even­ing” as the raf­fle theme.

Jen­nifer Bres­lawski, Melissa DiRado, Julie Fre­dette, Su­san Hunter and Denise Richards are the team who made the night a suc­cess with out­stand­ing lead­er­ship, prepa­ra­tion, cre­ativ­ity and or­ga­ni­za­tion.

In ad­di­tion to the grownup Bas­ket Raf­fle, the stu­dents joined in the fun. Stu­dent Coun­cil or­ga­nized a sim­i­lar raf­fle for the kids, bas­kets filled with toys, games and ac­tiv­i­ties.
