Dear Assumption Family,
I want to personally thank everyone who supported April Knight, Re-U-Knighted…and it feels so good! Whether you attended the event, donated an item, were a corporate sponsor, or purchased a raffle ticket, we could not have made the evening a success without you. A special thanks to Bill Obenauf, Dan DeVries, and Nick Haut for their leadership during the live auction – their commitment and comedic timing proved just the right mix for a fruitful auction.
As the income generated at April Knight supports such a variety of areas (including tuition assistance, academic programming, technological upgrades, and capital improvement projects), I thought it was important to share that revenue from this year’s event was well over the five year average, and we saw an incredible 10% increase when compared to last year alone!
On behalf of our students, faculty, and staff, thank you – you are what truly what makes Assumption special. Through your dedication and commitment it possible for us to continue providing an excellent Catholic education to our students.
Andy Craig, President
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all who helped make April Knight a fun and wonderful evening – from our tireless volunteers to the attendees and donors, our event would not have been a success without you!
