When the festival was originally planned as an in-person event, the goal was to raise $ 100,000 for Nazareth Academy, said Lauren Hawes, president of the parent-teacher club and president of the festival. The private Catholic elementary school, owned and operated by the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and the Blessed Sacrament, relies on fundraising to help provide quality Christian education at an affordable cost for parents.
âWe hope for the best,â Hawes said. âRunning a school is so expensive, and the sisters have been doing such a good job for so long. We try to help in any way we can.
Money raised by the annual event will be used to provide learning experiences, support resources and personnel beyond budget, and offset the cost of maintaining facilities, according to a solicitation letter. sent by Hawes on behalf of PTC. In recent years, the proceeds have also been used to provide scholarships and purchase educational materials and sports equipment.
