The Walk-a-Thon is an annual event designed to increase the visibility of our school in the community and raise money for the SCC Angel Fund. The SCC Angel Fund is a tuition assistance fund for families in need of financial aid. Each year, we receive requests for tuition assistance from our SCC families.  SCC strives to give tuition assistance to as many as possible but we have been unable to meet the financial needs of everyone.

In preparation for the Walk-a-Thon, students are asked to collect donations from community members, neighbors, relatives and family friends.  Our hope is that each SCC family will collect at least $100 and not require parents to donate.

For each family that collects $100 in donations, your name will be placed into raffles for:

1st prize: an iPad Mini

2nd prize:  a $100 gift card to Student Styles!

For every additional $50 collected, we will add another raffle ticket in your name.

The raffles will take place after Mass on October 6th.

Following the raffles, we will be presented with the 2017-18 School of Distinction Award

The 25 families who raise the most for the SCC Angel Fund will receive an SCC Angel Card which will allow free admission to this year’s regular season Saints Basketball Home Games in the 2017 – 2018 academic year.  In addition, each SCC student in these families will receive four tickets valid for a dress-down day for this school year.

Last year some enterprising students uploaded pictures of themselves in their school uniform and petitioned on social media and were very successful in raising funds!

We also had students who set up tables after weekend Mass at their parishes!



PLEASE NOTE

Although Saratoga Central Catholic collects money for the SCC Angel Fund all year round……

when we coordinate with the Walk-a-thon, in order for a student to be eligible to participate in the iPad and gift card raffles, the money must be in to Mrs. Guarnieri by the morning of October 6th. The number of raffle tickets a student gets to enter into the raffles depends on the amount of money raised by that student.  The raffles will be pulled at the end of Mass on the 6th.

Mrs. Guarnieri will extend the competition for the top 25 families until October 13th.
