April Knight Postponed

Dear Assumption Family,

In light of the ever-changing conditions surrounding the coronavirus, we have decided to postpone this year’s April Knight. While we will all miss the opportunity to gather as a community in support of our great school, the health and safety of our Assumption Family must be our top priority. If you have already sent in your reservation, we will be in touch soon.

We are currently looking into options for a possible online auction and will keep you updated on any developments there. We are still planning to hold our Early Bird and Grand Prize Raffle drawings as scheduled. Please consider showing your support of Assumption while having the chance to win several great cash prizes by purchasing a raffle ticket or two! Our Early Bird Raffle drawing will be held as scheduled on April 15th, and our Grand Prize Raffle drawing will be held April 24th. You may purchase tickets via e-check here, or you may mail payment to school at 1020 W. Central Park Avenue, Davenport, IA 52804.

Unprecedented times present unique challenges for all of us. In times of uncertainty, family is there for each other, and our Assumption Family is no different. Thank you for your continued support of our mission through your support of April Knight. We look forward to being together again in the future.

One in the Spirit,
Andy Craig
