St. Rose of Lima Catholic School in Ephrata shattered its record for money raised at the 28th Annual Benefit Auction Saturday night.
I was honored to serve as the Master of Ceremonies. And having attended St. Rose from kindergarten through sixth grade, I was humbled by the amount of money raised for my old school.
St. Rose grossed $164,900 from the auction, which is roughly $70,000 more than it had ever grossed before.
The live auction raised over $100,000 alone. Another $31,500 was raised for Father Kerr's scholarship fund.
