2017 MaryFair Designated Appeal to Fund Two Projects

Each year, there is a fund-a-need drive during the MaryFair Dinner and Auction event. Since its introduction in 2009, over $180,000 has been given to this special appeal, enabling us to accomplish the following projects:

  • Installation of a canopy to provide protection from the weather on the sidewalks leading to the church and school entrances
  • Tornado relief for St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Joplin
  • The transformation of our playground into an innovative new playscape
  • iPad stations and Smart Boards for classrooms
  • A complete overhaul of the gym including new lighting, scoreboards, wall mats, and paint
  • Installation of an Induction Loop hearing assistance system in the church

This year, our goal is to fund two essential projects in the school with the Designated Appeal funds:

  • First, replacing all window blinds to enhance security and increase energy efficiency
  • Second, modernizing the outdated equipment in the restrooms to provide a variety of benefits to students and guests

Please help us reach our goal of $25,000 to fund these imortant projects.  If you would like to contribute but will not be attending the dinner and auction, you may make a donation to the 2017 Designated Appeal by contacting Jennifer Wood.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
