THANK YOU, O'HARA!
It is hard to put into words the gratitude in our hearts from the outpouring of support at the auction last night. We are still in awe of the generosity our community continues to share with our school. We are thankful and blessed to be surrounded by such loving families, friends and businesses. Thank you for trusting us and believing in us; as we work to provide the best Catholic education to your children.
We want to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, attendees, auction committee members and our chairs, Ryan and Brita Arcuri, for an amazing 2024 O'Hara Auction: Denim and Diamonds! You were instrumental and inspiring!
Thank you also to O'Hara parents Dustin & Erin Whitaker of Down the Beanstalk Productions for producing our O'Hara auction video. Watching our kids on the big screen is always a highlight of the evening. Please feel free to view the video here.
We are thrilled to share with you that our appeals brought in a combined $180,250
Staff Lounge, Teacher Workroom and Advancement Office: $70,250

Thank you again for all of your support!
RAISE THE PADDLE
Raise the Paddle is a special appeal where O’Hara asks for extra financial assistance in areas of great need. This year we are asking for your help with the following:
We believe that every family seeking a strong Catholic education for their children should have the opportunity to enroll at O’Hara regardless of their financial position. Scholarship needs continue to grow, and it is critical that we do everything we can to help keep our students here. O’Hara provides over $250,000 in tuition assistance each year. Help us continue the traditions and excellence we are blessed with for all who seek it.
TEACHER WORKROOM/LOUNGE & ADVANCEMENT OFFICE UPDATES
While improving and maintaining a functional, healthy and enjoyable environment is important for our students, it is also essential to the health and efficiency of our staff. This summer, O’Hara plans to abate and renovate our staff lounge, staff workroom and Advancement office. These spaces are in desperate need of work, and we need your help tonight in raising the $150,000 necessary to make much-needed improvements. It is so important that we show our teachers how valued they are by giving them a space they can enjoy together. Thank you in advance for your generous support of our teachers and staff.
