Dickinson County Catholic School hosts annual fundraiser
The donations will go to benefit Holy Spirit Catholic School in Norway
NORWAY, Mich. (WLUC) - The Holy Spirit Catholic School in Norway hosted its second annual 50-50 fundraiser. All 4,000 tickets were purchased, at $10 a ticket, with over $40,000 raised.
$20,000 went directly back to the school, and $20,000 was divided to five random winners. Drawings took place at the Thirsty Whale in Norway. The grand prize winner was Natalie Gendron of Vulcan, who took home $10,000.
Organizer Paula Land says the outpour of community support is heartwarming, and the $20,000 will go directly back to the school to keep it operational. The school just got a $2,500 bill to fix the boiler and will use money from the fundraiser to pay for it. Land says the school does not receive government funding.
Land says the fundraiser was a success, and the school will host it again next year.
