Cara Haas works at Good Shepherd Catholic School and is co-chair of the CEF Futures Leadership Council.
The Catholic Education Foundation Futures committee is hosting their seventh annual Art Event at Boulevard Brewing Company on February 28th at 6:30 pm. Every year committee members and friends gather at the Art Event to raise money for the Catholic Education Foundation’s Guardian Angel Fund. The Guardian Angel Fund was created to give scholarship support to families facing emergency financial hardships due to job loss, medical expenses or similar.
I have been involved with the Futures committee for almost four years now. I am so happy to be able to help with the Catholic Education Foundation’s mission to make Catholic education possible for everyone, not just those who can afford it. I was fortunate enough to go to Catholic schools growing up, and was able to build a stronger faith in God because of it. Now, working in a Catholic school I have the opportunity to see the benefits of Catholic education in my everyday work.
In addition to raising money for the Guardian Angel fund, attendees at the Art Event will enjoy appetizers, cupcakes and Boulevard Brewing Company beverages. The Futures committee will also be holding a silent auction where attendees can bid on local art pieces.
Art donations are now being accepted for the silent auction. Some past auction items have been beautiful paintings, hand-crafted wooden furniture, local sports-themed decor and a hand-made quilt. Contact us for more information about art donations.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
