No Na Keiki ‘O St. John (For the Children of St. John)
Hawaiian Fun Fact...
Mahalo nui loa means “thank you very much”
Thank you very much St. John community; collectively you raised a gross amount of over $490,000 for our school! As Bernadette O’Leary said in NewsViews last week….”you did an incredible job of helping us ensure that next year, we can offer a just and fair salary to our teachers. The Auction proceeds are such a huge part of the operating budget, comprising about eight percent of the revenue, revenue that is used to pay those salaries and benefits, purchase instructional programs, keep the lights on, etc. This year’s Auction grossed $490,346 – almost $100,000 more than 2018. Fund-a-Need exceeded $148,000 including two large matching gifts totaling $45,000. Corporate matching has not yet been reported, so this total is expected to increase. Over $50,000 came in through sponsorship and cash donations which allows us to not only hold the event at Fremont Studios, but to direct more of the evening’s proceeds into the school operating budget.”
Thank you, St. John community, for an incredible Auction year!
