St.Matthew 2018 Main Event October 27, 2018, 6pm 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 children’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 year’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.
Deadline extended! Online and phone orders for student projects have extended their free shipping deadline to midnight on November 16. These make great Christmas gifts for grandparents and family!
