St. Joseph High School’s biggest annual fundraiser is coming up in June.

Limited space remains for the 27th annual “Spartan Scramble,” being held June 10 at Lenape Heights Golf Resort in Manor, Armstrong County.

The event includes golf, dinner, auctions and a “super raffle.” More than 100 golfers participate each year, and the event is often sold out, according to the school.

The Harrison school aims to raise $50,000. Proceeds are used to keep tuition affordable for students.

St. Joseph has 160 students in ninth through 12th grades. Current tuition is $10,200 for a Catholic family and $10,500 for non-Catholics.

“We have financial aid as well to keep a Catholic education affordable for families,” admissions Director Shane Palumbo said.

Registration will start at 10:30 a.m. followed by lunch, golf and dinner. Those who are not golfing can attend at 5:30 p.m. for the dinner and auction.

Businesses and families can sponsor a “Tee & Green” or a foursome of golfers at various levels.

Individuals can register for $150, which includes lunch, cart, green fees and dinner; dinner costs $50 for non-golfers.

In addition to team and skill prizes for men and women, Sebak Insurance, O’Neil Insurance, Henne Jewelers, and Seita Diamond Jewelers sponsor hole-in-one prizes. Anchor Inn sponsors a “Best Spartan Putter” contest, independent of the round of golf.

There will be live and silent auctions, a 50/50 raffle, and card games. Scholarships to Carlow University, Duquesne University, La Roche University, Mount Aloysius College, Point Park University, Saint Francis University, and Saint Vincent College will be auctioned.

Auctions are open to all. Silent bids on scholarships are accepted by calling the development office at 724-226-8043.

The evening will end with a $20,000 “Super Raffle” drawing. Only 500 tickets are being sold at $100 each.

In addition to the $20,000 grand prize, there will be three $1,000 runner-up prizes.

Tickets for the raffle can be bought on the school’s website at or by phone at 724-224-5552.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
