Limited space remains for annual St. Joseph High School golf fundraiser
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 saintjosephhs.com or by phone at 724-224-5552.
