Our Fall Fundraiser, which helps kick-off our Annual Giving Campaign each year, supports our school’s academic and enrichment programs, tuition assistance, professional development, technology needs and necessary building maintenance. Without the funds raised by this special event, St. Mary’s would either have to curtail or eliminate these valuable studies possibly raise tuition substantially and decrease the amount of tuition assistance provided each year to families in need.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR ELEVENTH ANNUAL HARVEST HOEDOWN!
With your help, our Hoedown raised over $19,000 to support our students and school community!

On October 14, Locust Street was packed with members of our school community, friends, family, teachers, staff and alumni - the sun even peeked out to join the fun! Vendors old and new came out to celebrate this wonderful event and provided delicious food, great entertainment, and tons of fun for all of our guests in attendance.We served delicious food from local restaurants, such as Las Cazuelas, Campo's Cheesesteaks, and Square Pie Pizza, and our bake table was a huge success once again this year - over 40 parents volunteered to bake treats for the school! Thank you!
TWe welcomed back the 4-H petting zoo, which continues to be a showstopper, as many lined up to pet the sheep and pigs on Locust. New this year were our Photo Booth and Picnic in the Park! Our Photo Booth was a hit, giving guests the chance to remember this Hoedown with a souvenir photo strip.
In the Magnolia Garden, guests were encouraged to bring a blanket and enjoy the chance to picnic in a part of Independence National Historical Park.
