St. Tim’s fundraiser a ‘Blast to the Past in Plaid’


Organizers are expecting a large, plaid-clad crowd at St. Timothy’s Catholic School’s 17th annual Spring Dinner Auction on Saturday, April 5, at The V by HH.
“We’re inviting back all the alumni, dating back to 1951, when the school was founded, so there should be a good turnout,” organizer Kim Larson said.
“Blast to the Past in Plaid” is the theme for the event, which will include the sisters of St. Timothy’s alumni staff.
The event will kick off with a beef and pork tenderloin dinner and a silent auction from 5 to 7 p.m. A tribute to the school will take place at 7 p.m., with the live auction following at 7:30 p.m.
Items include “Poolside with the Padres,” featuring Father John Meyer and Father Michael Izen; a “Hawaiian Cruise” pontoon ride on Maple Lake; quilts; and student-made stained glass projects; among several other items donated by parishioners and parents of students.
Additional items are still being accepted.
Following the auction, raffle winners will be announced. This year, the winner will have a choice between a 2014 Ford Focus SE from Morrie’s Buffalo Ford or $10,000 in cash. Second place will take home $500, third place will be worth $200 and the next three places will pay $100 each.
