St. Matthew Main Event

St. Matthew Main Event October 19, 2019 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm The Noble Center 795 Havens Corners Rd., Gahanna

Mission: The Main Event is a time to celebrate the very special spirit of St. Matthew School. It is the commitment of the teachers, staff, parents and students that allows our children to flourish and meet their unlimited potential in a special and unique atmosphere of learning and love. Our children are blessed with the opportunity to attend this school. Beyond books and tests, their education fosters a sense of respect and honesty, faith and compassion, and right vs. wrong. Coupled with strong academics, the foundation upon which their education is built during their years at St. Matthew will guide them for a lifetime. The Main Event brings together many people who have the same goal: to raise money for our childrenโ€™s school so that it can continue to nurture the mind and spirit. With recent state funding cuts to private schools, fundraising efforts such as The Main Event become all the more important. This yearโ€™s function will enable St. Matthew School to continue to provide technology and capital improvements, as well as tuition assistance grants, which benefit our children. Through the generosity of our families and of businesses that donate to The Main Event, we are able to raise significant funds for St. Matthew School. Please remember their support and return it to them throughout the year.

We have a few awesome items for the Notre Dame fans attending the Main Event!!

7th Grade class project.

Our students roots run deep at St Matthew. The 7th graders growth and faith is represented in the colorful leaves they created for this beautiful tree on canvas.

๐Ÿ“ฃItโ€™s baaaaaaaaack! ๐Ÿ“ฃ

8th Grade class project!

Class Quilt
The 8th grade quilt is back! This time honored tradition has been gone for a few years but we are happy to be the class to ressurect it. This t-shirt quilt contains so many memories of our children's past at St Matthew. From school uniforms and infamous fleece jacket to sports and drama club shirts, this quilt is full of memories that any family will surely cherish for many years to come.

This beautiful quilt was lovingly hand-made by Lauren Blausey's grandmother and is absolutely priceless!

And what better way to display the beautiful 8th grade quilt than on a 60" solid oak ladder, handcrafted by a parent.

How many likes can we get for the quilt?!?!

6th grade class project!!

Corn Hole
Enjoy time outside playing corn hole on this maroon and gold set of boards. The 6th grade has added their signatures to the boards.

Ohio State Buckeye Christmas Tree.

This 4 foot tree is fully decorated in scarlet and grey with signatures of all the 5th graders adorning the silver wooden helmets.

2nd grade class project!


The 2nd grade students and teachers each decorated a mini cross that have all come together on 1 large cross. The piece would be a welcome addition to your home.

4th grade Class project!

Organize sports equipment in the garage, shoes in the mudroom, toys in the basement or clothes in your child's bedroom. This set of metal lockers has loads of storage space and the chalkboards on the sides gives you a place to keep track of practice schedules. Go Mustangs!

Main Event is just around the corner on Saturday, October 19. The theme is An Evening in Paradise. To get everyone excited for this amazing night, we have created a series of short videos highlighting the event. More importantly, each video shares just a few (of the many) ways that the funds benefit the St. Matthew School Community.

Our second video welcomes Katie Ference who is part of the team of volunteers working diligently to put Main Event together this year. We don't know how she found the time to stop and chat, but we are definitely glad she did!
