St. Edward’s Annual Fundraiser is sure to be another great event.  Our theme for 2018 is “Oktoberfest” and we are looking forward to an evening of fun, fellowship and frivolity as we celebrate community with parishioners, family, friends and Father Casey in one of this fall’s “must attend” events.  Come and enjoy great food, entertainment, and the excitement of the Basket & Silent Auction.

In the coming weeks of July, we will be asking volunteers to sign up to make (or donate towards) our baskets for the auction.  Our goal is to have 15-20 baskets and for this year we would like to focus on a food and beverage theme.  Think out-of-the-box. . . coffee baskets, tea baskets, snack baskets, wine & cheese baskets, ice cream, foods from other countries, varieties of seasonings and sauces for cooking, baking baskets, craft beverage baskets, sweets and treats, entertainment baskets (with napkins, plates, cups, etc. for your guests’ visits) . . the list is endless, fun  (and delicious!)

Our timeline for donations, ticket sales and the event will be earlier this year.  Baskets will be due by Sunday, September 16th.

Ticket sales for baskets and the event, as well as bids for Silent Auction items, begin Sunday, September 23rd and run through the event evening of Saturday, October 13th.

Tickets for the event are $10/each.  Children are free.

Basket tickets are 6/$5

Help us meet our goal of $5,000 this year!


Our 3rd Annual Dinner Event and Auction, a New York Style supper club, was a true success!  We raised over $4,200 and we thank you for your GENEROUS donations to our Annual Fundraising Event.  Without YOU our efforts to raise funds for the ministry of St. Edward’s would not be a success!

We thank all of our volunteers and donors and most especially Alessio’s Mangia Mangia for the generous donation of their authentic sauces for our meal!

A special thanks to our musician, Doug LaSala, for his fantastic music during the event, and the talents of our very own St. Edward’s parishioner, Joe Holwager for his magical talents.

COOKIE SALE 2017 UPDATE:  Our 2017 cookie sale was, once again, a HUGE success!  thanks to all the bakers and volunteers.  We raised over $2,300 this year!

COOKIES, COOKIES, COOKIES!!!! Guess what? The St. Edward’s Christmas Cookie Sale is coming up on Saturday, December 2nd. That is not too far away to start thinking about baking. If you are interested in coming to St. Edward’s on a Saturday and participating in a group baking session, please contact the parish office. If we have enough interest, we will work to schedule one in mid-November and will provide details. A sign up sheet for cookies will be in the parish hall starting November 5th. Let’s make this year’s cookie sale the biggest yet. St. Edward’s has quite a great following now for our cookie sale and we pretty much sell out within an hour. So, the more cookies we make, the more funds we can raise! We will also be having our café breakfast, so if you would like to volunteer to help with that, please let the parish office know.


Fall 2016 is here and it is time for St. Edward’s fundraising event season!  St. Edward’s fundraising for 2015 raised over $6,700 for our ministries.  See below for details on our first event!

Our Basket and Silent Auctions are in full swing and run through Saturday, October 22nd!  That is when we will draw the ticket numbers for the baskets, as well as announce the winners of the Silent Auction.  You are able to buy tickets and bid throughout the Night of Mystery event.  Plus you have 3 more Sunday’s to buy tickets and bid!!!
