CASINO NIGHT AND DWTS
I hope that this email finds you well and with a great start to the new year of 2021! In regards to fundraising, I wanted to give you an update on where we are this school year. As most of you know, we were a week away from having our 9th annual Dancing with the Stars when COVID halted our plans. After we all got over the initial shock, we made plans to reschedule DWTS. We have since tried to reschedule this event twice and were unable to do so because of the COVID restrictions placed on us due to the large number of tickets sold for this event and the unavailability of the casino.
We WILL have our 9th annual Dancing with the Stars event, one way or another. Please do understand that the amount of people attending will be limited, but we will try our best to make accommodations. Once we have a date scheduled for DWTS, we will notify everyone who bought tickets of our intention for capacity and tickets. Please understand that this has been a heavy burden on all of us, and we want to do everything we can to make this event happen for everyone that has invested so much time, effort, and money into our school. The money that is raised for DWTS has always gone towards facility improvements, tuition assistance for needy families, and our CHS Endowment fund. This year because of limited capabilities in having a large fundraising gathering, these funds are even more crucial.
Because we lost a year of Dancing with the Stars and our school depends on these funds, we decided to have “Blackjack 21”! This will be a Casino gaming night on Saturday, February 6th at 7pm at Bayou Oaks here in town. We are working with our vendors to ensure that all COVID protocols can be met, which means that we can only sell a limited amount of tickets. Now is the time to get your tickets! Since there is a limit, we are asking that you “request” tickets by using this link, http://ow.ly/CkHS50Dcmf8
In addition to our live Casino Night, we are also conducting a virtual silent auction that is starting today until the night of the event! These items can be found by clicking on the following link, https://chsni.rallyup.
We appreciate your support of Catholic High School during the trying times of this pandemic. If you have any questions regarding these events, I ask that you contact myself or Dr. Arabie. Thank you for your time and understanding and thank you for your continued support of CHS!
