Today was the big day! Our entire school community gathered to support Father Matt as he braved the shave. The students cheered in support of Father Matt as he was shaved at our special assembly.
The assembly began with Ben’s Bubble Show, which was an engaging and fun time for all! Then, Father Matt came to the stage and our expert stylist and school parent Mrs. Cwik shaved Father Matt.
Thanks to the generous donations the Brave the Shave raised a total of $16,261! $6,261 were donations from our school and parish community, which exceeded the $5,000 goal and unlocked matching donations. We had not one, but two $5,000 matching donations. Our first generous matching donation was from MJ Shining Stars and the second donation was from an anonymous donor.
A special note of gratitude to Father Matt for braving the shave and helping to raise money to support our school!
