  • Published in Letters
To The Daily Sun,
On April 13, Holy Trinity Catholic School hosted its Annual Spring Auction at Sacred Heart Parish Center. We welcomed local residents and businesses who joined us in support of the school on a spectacular spring evening. We are pleased to announce that this event raised an astonishing $41,500 to benefit HTS.
This is a highlighted fundraising and social event of the spring. Hosting over 200 guests, the Playground Themed event was gratefully presented by AutoServ of Tilton and Bank of New Hampshire. The evening presented over 200 silent auction items, 69 Live Auction items, a dinner buffet compliments of Fratello's Restaurant and Shaw's of Gilford, an unimaginable candy buffet, an ice carving sculpted by Ice Designs by Jeff Day presented the center piece of 200 cupcakes compliments of Oh La La Bakery, Tony Sarno and son, Aiden (1st grade), played a set of live songs during the Silent Auction, followed by DJ services compliments of Warren Bailey Entertainment; the event was more than a fun evening out to support a great cause but one great night out! In an effort to truly recognize the additional support we received, the HTS Auction Committee wish to extend our sincere appreciation to our many other sponsors and contributors.
A special thank you to Children's Dentistry of the Lakes Region, Benson Auto, Rowley Agency, Kennell Orthodontics, Albin Randall & Bennett CPA's, Paradigm Plumbing & Heating, Barlo Signs, Irwin Motors, Watermark Marine Construction, Northway Bank, Propel Development, Cross Insurance, Eptam Plastics, Dion's Landscaping, Rowell's Sewer & Drain, and JMG Marketing. Thank you to the businesses that made donations to our silent and live auction program, we are excited to announce over 225 local and New England regional businesses donated more than 400 items valued at over $40,000 to be placed up on a Silent and Live Auction agenda.
Holy Trinity Catholic School is dedicated to providing a total Christian educational experience which engages students intellectually, promotes social and personal responsibility and inspires spiritual growth. Proceeds from this annual event will be used to fund scholarships and programs that continue to support our School's mission.
We feel extremely fortunate to live in a community that supports so many great programs and efforts like ours.
Our sincere thank you!
