BISHOP’S CAR RAFFLE WINNER

Congratulations to Martha Ochoa from St. Thomas Apostle School. She won the 2021 Ford Mustang. Despite this pandemic, our school sold 910 tickets totaling $9,100 raised for the Bishop’s Endowment. Our school receives $7.50 per ticket, and we will see $6,825 come our way. This fundraiser is so important as the funds raised go right back into our parents’ pockets through the Endowment funds & local financial school assistance awarded to families in need every year.
