Dear parents, students and friends,
I would like to thank everyone who helped make our annual fundraiser, A Night of 1000 Stars, a success. This important event helped raise the necessary funds for our school to continue providing a quality Catholic education for our community.
My deepest gratitude goes especially to our Event Chair Tom Stoudt, Auction Chair Jan Moore, Decoration Chair Maggie Tedesco, Event Publication Chair, Pam Geraghty, and for Mary Miloe and Pam Leonardo for their tireless dedication in processing computerizing all our auction, underwriting and table sponsor gifts.
My gratitude also extends to all our underwriters, table sponsors, auction donors and the many other workers and volunteers who, in no small way, contributed to the evening’s success: the Auction Committee lead by Jan Moore and her assistant, Margie DiBernardo; Volunteer Coordinator Shannon Deeter; Opportunity Drawing Coordinator Jean Pichler (representing Star Academic); Logistics and Consulting Mike Ringleman and Steve Tedesco; and the many parent volunteers who so generously helped us with this event and all the past events. Your many hours of labor will help brighten the future education for many students. Thank you for helping build up the kingdom of God at Mary Star of the Sea High School.
Above all, we must thank almighty God, who in his providence has blessed our school community with such dedicated and generous persons. All our work must be ordered for His greater honor and glory. May God bless you all for your support.
In Mary, Star of the Sea,
Rev. Nicholas Tacito, O.Praem.
