St. Michael's Christmas Bazaar raises $9,000


Dear Editor,
Thank you to everyone who helped in any way at our December Santa’s Christmas Bazaar. Because of the hard work and dedication of several key people and the generosity of many individuals and local businesses, our school raised $9,000 to help one of our parents, Donna Avant Thomas, with medical expenses accumulated over the past several years.
Thank you to the members of the committee set up to plan the event: Jennifer Bishop, Jimmy Gips, Jennifer Gonzales, Gina Haun, Lourdes Saenz, Audrey Sauer, and Pam Zengerle. We especially thank Brenda Martin who helped solicit donations and directed us as to what to do.
Thank you to the local businesses who donated items or money for the meals and raffle: Aviation Credit, Barbecue Station, Dairy Queen, Donut Palace, KN Drive-in, Leske Oil Company, Longhorn Restaurant, Monster Burger, and the St. Michael’s HSA. We also received an anonymous donation of stew meat and an anonymous monetary donation for the hamburger patties.
Many, many monetary donations were received from individuals and we thank everyone for those. Thank you also to everyone who came that day and supported our event. 
What a great way to celebrate the gift that is Christmas.
Judy Roeder, Principal
Jennifer Bishop, HSA President
