Thank You, Assumption Family, For A Successful April Knight!

Dear Assumption Family,

There are many times throughout the course of a year when I am reminded just how special our Assumption community really is.  There are schools in every community, but this school is so much more than that.  Our recent April Knight fundraiser brought the beauty of our Assumption Family to light once again, and I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to so many in our community who played such a vital role in the success of the event.  From our corporate, family, and class-level sponsors to the student committee members who gained real-world educational experience through their service to this effort, to those who donated and purchased auction items, to raffle ticket buyers and sellers to all of those who attended and celebrated that night – thank you.  Our mission of Catholic education is only possible through the support of many.  I am truly blessed to be a part of this family.

One in the Spirit,

Bridget Murphy

April Knight “Class of,” Family, and Corporate Sponsorship Options

“Class of” Sponsorships

April Knight is our one major fundraiser of each school year, and the support of many is necessary to make the event so successful each year.  We greatly appreciate the gifts of time, talent, and treasure that translate into major support for all of our students and programs through this event.  We are hoping that families or those interested in supporting and honoring our current students might consider sponsorship gifts to the event.  This year, for example, we will have 4 “Class of” sponsorship lists for the following:

Class of 2027

Class of 2026

Class of 2025

Class of 2024

Parents or grandparents/family members with a current freshmen and current senior, for example, might choose to sponsor the Class of 2027 and Class of 2024.  The names of sponsors will be listed with their appropriate classes and recognized for their support through the various event promotions as well as at the April Knight event on April 26, 2024. Checks or cash for sponsorships can be dropped off to the Assumption Front Office or mailed to Assumption High School, Attn: AK Sponsorship, 1020 W. Central Park Ave. Davenport, IA, 52804.  Please indicate the specific classes you are wishing to sponsor, as well as the way you would like your name(s) to appear in the acknowledgement (For example: John and Katie Smith, John and Katie ’67 Smith, Katie Smith ’67 etc.) The costs for class sponsorships are:

1 class: $100

2 classes: $175

3 classes: $250

4 classes: $325

Family Sponsorships

Those families wishing to sponsor the event at a more significant level can also opt to be a Family Sponsor.  Family Sponsorships are acknowledged alongside our corporate sponsors, and are generally acknowledged by last name (For example: The Smith Family).  As indicated on the attached Family Sponsorship form, the levels for Family Sponsorships are as follows:

Faith: $5,000+ (Includes 10 reservations to the April Knight event)

Wisdom: $2,500 (Includes 8 reservations to the April Knight event)

Integrity: $1,500 (Includes 4 reservations to the April Knight event)

Responsibility: $750 (Includes 2 reservations to the April Knight event)

Gratitude: $300

Corporate Sponsorships

Supporters who are interested in Corporate Sponsorships are also much appreciated and sponsorship levels are the same for business as the Family Sponsorship levels highlighted above. Additional advertising incentives for Corporate Sponsors are detailed on the attached sponsorship form. If you have a business and are interested in supporting the April Knight event, this may be a great fit!

Thank you so much to our families and community partners for all the support they provide to our school and community!  We are so grateful for the partnership we have with so many in the Catholic educational mission we share through our Assumption Family.

April Knight 2024 Raffle Ticket Sales

This year’s April Knight is Friday, April 26th. As in the past, the evening includes food and drink, auction, a great social atmosphere, and the excitement of the annual raffle ticket drawings. Raffle prizes total over $25,000, and each ticket offers 25 chances to win! This year, the cost per raffle ticket is only $25, and we are hoping to see this shift make it possible for more members of our community to participate while those who have long supported us in this effort might just increase their number of tickets purchased as well as their chances to win!

Tax-deductible donation option through the AK Raffle: Another option for support through our raffle is to purchase tickets in honor or memory of a loved one. This option offers the raffle ticket purchase amount to qualify as a tax deductible donation to the school.  If you would like to choose this option, please just list the name on the ticket in the following format: “AK – In memory of John Smith.”  Any further address or phone information should be that of the purchaser (you), so we are able to send you an acknowledgement of your gift.  Any winnings from this type of ticket will go to benefit April Knight (AK).  We thank you in advance for your consideration of this gifting option!
