On April 21, nearly 400 friends, family members, and supporters gathered at the InterContinental Hotel and Conference Center to celebrate the children of Julie Billiart Schools. Proceeds of the silent auction, live auction and Fund-A-Need portion of the evening exceeded $300,000 (gross). These dollars will be used to help sustain our current programs and services for children with unique learning needs while allowing us to reach even more students throughout Northeast Ohio.
Highlights of the evening included the presentation of the Community Partnership Award to the Drexel Fund, while Jenniffer and Daryl Deckard were honored with the Spirit of St. Julie Award.
We are forever grateful for all those that donated, attended, and volunteered to help with this annual fundraiser. Special thanks to Event Co-Chairs Annamarie and Bill Brancovsky, Abby, and Victor Alexander and their planning committee.
