NORTH PLATTE – The 21st annual G.R.E.E.N. fundraising event for the North Platte Catholic Schools is planned for Saturday, October 21st at St. Patrick High School. Generating Resources for Educational Excellence Now is the largest single event of the year for the North Platte Catholic Schools Endowment Trust, which works year-round to generate around $600,000 for McDaid and St. Patrick’s schools.
Endowment Director Wendy Dodson says that this year’s event will feature all of the things that supporters have loved about G.R.E.E.N. over the years… A delicious meal, an online silent auction, Heads or Tails game, Lucky Lotto drawing, live auction, and Spirit Wagon raffle. Plus, guests may also try their hand at the Wall of Wine and the Wall of Whiskey and enjoy some fun entertainment with the Polka Police.
Dodson says that since the G.R.E.E.N. event began in 2003, it has generated over $2.1 million dollars in support of the North Platte Catholic Schools. These funds have been used to establish a teacher retirement fund, support general operations of McDaid and St. Patrick’s, fund school improvement projects and technology, and to provide tuition assistance for families.
Tickets to G.R.E.E.N. are $75 per person, which includes drinks, dinner & entertainment. Call or visit the Endowment office to register: 308-534-5939, 601 S.
