The Solicitation Team Needs your Help!

Do you have a favorite gym, restaurant or salon that you frequent and that you think would be willing to donate a gift card or a basket to our Tricky Tray?? The donations we are receiving from St. Francis families make up the majority of our 400-basket goal and we are very grateful for your generous donations! In addition, we rely on local businesses, the generosity of friends and extended family for the remaining baskets. Please e-mail us at trickytray@stfranciscathedralschool.org with the name, phone number, relationship of the person willing to make a donation to our event and we will do the rest! We will make sure that your name is mentioned when we speak to them!

Stay tuned to the blog for updated information and volunteer opportunities!
