How can my family get involved?

Thank you for your interest in helping reach our Mane Event fundraising goal. Where there’s a will there’s a way and we would love to have you involved.

If you are someone with time on your hands…

  • Join the Mane Event Committee: This event requires many hands to make it fun and impactful for our school. We’d love for you to join us. Please reach out to the committee at stmmaneevent@stthomasmore.org for how you can help! There are big tasks, small tasks and everything in between depending on the time you have available!
  • Help solicit silent auction items: This can either be done by reaching out to business owners you know, or venturing out and visiting local businesses asking them to consider donating an item, gift card, package, etc to our silent auction. Businesses are much more likely to fulfill a donation request when coming from a family member, friend, or loyal patron! See ideas below! **Please ensure all donations are submitted by Friday, November 1st as the committee needs time to input all items into our auction website before the auction goes live. Please contact Reem, our Silent Auction chairperson, at mikhail.reem@gmail.com with any questions or to get involved with the Silent Auction.
  • Help sell Calendar Raffle tickets at Mass: We need many families to volunteer as we will be selling at all Masses on two weekends prior to the Mane Event. Your family will have the opportunity to sell before and after the Mass/Masses you sign up for. Keep an eye out for an email to sign up for a Mass time!

If you are a well connected person…

  • We need you to reach out to your contacts to help get items for our Live Auction! Vacation homes or packages, unique experiences, big ticket items are all crowd favorites! Please contact Juanita, our Live Auction chairperson at chupies1227@yahoo.com.

For everyone…

  • Guardian Angels: Reach out to parishioners, alumni, grandparents, aunts and uncles, best friends or anyone in your circle who understands the mission of our school and ask them to become Guardian Angels. This is an opportunity for them to make a monetary donation whether big or small, that is close to their hearts.
  • Corporate Matching: Do you work for a Matchmaker? Many companies will match charitable donations made by their employees, making your donated dollars go even further toward helping STM reach our fundraising goals! STM Catholic is a 501(c)3 organization and all donations to our fundraiser are tax-deductible for both you and your employer. Inquire with your employer or click the link to check out the listing of Colorado companies with corporate matching programs! https://www.builtincolorado.com/companies/perks/match-charitable-contributions
  • Host a Social: Consider donating a STM Social for our Silent Auction. Socials are a big hit and it is a great way to build community and fellowship with our school families. The options are endless. Some ideas of successful socials hosted in the past include: Men’s March Madness Watch Night, Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, Kids’ Backyard Movie Night Under the Stars, Tiki Pool Party, and a Limousine Family Christmas Light Tour. See more ideas below. If you’d like to host a social or need help with ideas, please contact Reem, our Silent Auction chairperson, at mikhail.reem@gmail.com.

Be creative and don’t forget to get the kids involved!  Their warm smiles and genuinity will smooth out your soliciting efforts and they will enjoy having the opportunity to be included in ways to help their beloved school!
