MANE EVENT FAQs
We know you will hear a lot about our yearly fundraising event, so we wanted to answer some basic questions you might have.
Q: What is the Mane Event?
A: The Mane Event is our school’s only major fundraiser, which helps to make up some of the additional capital needed to fully fund the school’s annual operating budget, as tuition alone does not fully cover it. Proceeds from the Mane Event go directly to the operating budget at STM Catholic School, 80% of which is teacher salaries.
Q: When and where is the Mane Event?
A: The Mane Event will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2023 at 5:00 pm at the Hilton Denver Inverness Hotel. One of the exciting news about this venue is that they will offer a courtesy room block with discounted rates if you choose to spend the night. Stay tuned for more info on how to make your reservation.
Q: What is the theme and attire for the evening?
A: This year’s theme is a throwback to the 1970’s! 70’s themed attire is strongly encouraged but not required. Dress up or down, expect to have a groovy time! The night features our silent auction, appetizers, and cocktails, followed by dinner and live auction presentation. End the night dancing away to live music from Jakarta! It will be a wonderful evening full of fun!
