St. Pascal Baylon School launches our annual Rake-A-Thon/Read-A-Thon!

Rake-A-Thon for St. Pascal Baylon Catholic SchoolOn Monday, October 3, St. Pascal’s School will kick-off it’s Annual Fundraiser Rake-a-thon /Read-a-thon (formerly known as Marathon). This event is by far the largest fundraiser for St. Pascal Baylon Catholic School and 100% of all donations raised for this event go directly to the school. One new addition this year is the option for students to complete Rake-a-thon and Read-a-thon sessions to raise money and collect donations. St. Pascal’s students will be engaged in community service and reading literacy, all while raising money for their school!

Our goal is to raise $25,000 during this fundraising event and we ask that each student set a goal of raising $150.00. How to raise $150? Ask friends, family members, grandparents, coaches and neighbors to sponsor your child’s raking and reading efforts during the month of October. The most important thing is for everyone to participate and to have fun!
