Fundraising Fun at St. Theresa’s

Fun at St. Theresa's

Not having enough school funds can create a sticky situation. So can raising too much.

Just ask Maureen Fyan, principal at St. Theresa, 5001 E. Thomas Road. She let the class who raised the most money during a fall fundraiser duct tape herself to the wall Oct. 5.

Overall, the school sold more than $18,100 worth of gourmet food through Krista’s Gourmet Favorites. That’s double what St. Theresa students raised last year by selling wrapping paper.
