Thank you to all STVM faculty, staff, alumni, parents, volunteers, and STVM supporters who purchased a ticket this year to directly benefit our students.  All ticket sales are used to immediately subsidize tuition assistance!

A very special thank you to our entire Advancement Team for their efforts and our special Car Raffle Volunteers:  Dan Petit, Ernie Bianchi, Allie Bianchi, Bev Waltz, and Colleen Kelliher, for their hard work and dedication prior to the raffle drawing.  We are Irish and proud of it!

  • The homeroom that has all students sell and return all of their tickets first, wins a doughnut breakfast!
  • The homeroom that generates the highest dollars in ticket sales receives a lunch catered by Chipotle!
  • The grade that generates the highest dollar amount in sales receives a Spirit Day, on a day designated by our administration.

Outstanding Invoices

  • If your student has an outstanding balance from previous car raffles, i.e. 2011-2012 or 2012-2013, or has opted out and not paid your balance, a bright green invoice was included in their packet. Please review the invoice. Any money turned in with stubs during THIS YEAR’S raffle will be applied to THIS YEAR’S DUES, not previous years. Checks being paid for previous bills will be accepted via the Business Office ONLY. Thank you for your cooperation. Buy Out ticket stubs will not be entered in the drawing until the Buy Out balance has been paid in full.
