Chances to win an $8,000 raffle prize, as well as bid on a wealth of interesting and valuable auction items, are still available for St. Joseph School's annual Spring Swing, set for the evening of Saturday, March 31 at European Chalet, 5445 South Harlem Avenue.
“This is one of our most enjoyable fundraisers of the year, and an important one for the boys and girls of our school,” stated St. Joseph School Principal Lawrence Manetti. “We invite all friends of the school---alumni, alumni parents, our local business community and others---to purchase tickets right now and then join us this Saturday evening for great food, lively entertainment including a Rat Pack tribute, and an exciting auction of some truly outstanding items.”
“Spring Swing will feature nearly 70 raffle baskets and 20 auction items, so it’s fair to say that just about everyone will go home with a unique and valuable prize,” he added.
Auction items include tickets to a Madonna concert, an American Girl doll, Disney “park hopper” passes, a Caribbean vacation package (St. Lucia and Antigua), a Nook color reader, a digital camera, golf clubs and golf package, a genuine Harley Davidson helmet, Panera Bread for a year, tickets to some of Chicago’s best theaters and restaurants, and more.
Cocktails will be served at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, with dinner served at 7:30 p.m.
Admission/dinner tickets are $40 each, or two for $75. A table of 10 is $375.
Grand Raffle tickets are $100 each----with only 200 being sold to maximize the odds of winning one of the prizes: $8,000 grand prize, $2,000 second prize, $1,000 third prize, and $500 fourth and fifth prizes.
Spring Swing tickets will not be available at the door, but are on sale this week on a pre-sale basis. To purchase tickets, contact the school office, 5641 South 73rd Avenue, Summit, 708-458-2927; or the St. Joseph Parish rectory, 7240 West 57th Street, Summit, 708-458-0501.
