2019 SCC Walk supports The SCC Angel Fund

SCC Walk: Friday, October 25th, 2019

All SCC Students take a brief walk up and down Broadway with an SCC Banner to demonstrate our  presence in Saratoga Springs. The rest of the day is spent volunteering in our community to support other charitable organizations.


The SCC Walk 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 SCC Walk, students are asked to visit community members, neighbors, relatives and family friends to share their appreciation for SCC and collect small donations to help their classmates offset the cost of tuition.  Students may also ask for corporate/business donations to the SCC Walk. Our hope is that each SCC family will collect at least $100 and not require parents to donate.

For every $25 raised by a family, each SCC student in that family will receive a dress down ticket (4 dress down ticket maximum per student).  These dress down tickets are only valid during the 2019-20 school year and may not be used on Mass days.

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

1st prize: Apple AirPods with charging case

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 at the end of the day on November 1st.

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 2019 – 2020 academic 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!


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

when we coordinate with the SCC Walk, 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 November 1st. 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 the day on the 1st.

Mrs. Guarnieri will extend the competition for the top 25 families until November 30th.
