We also encourage you to visit our website at Greater Giving and share the link with friends and family.

Thank you St. John families who have already made their donations. We still need 100% participation to make this event as successful as possible. Please turn in your items and submit your procurement forms by Friday, January 27. If you are looking for ideas, visit the Donation Guide.  These items are still high on our wish list: 

Sponsorship – Last Call, January 27
The deadline to sign up for a sponsorship is this Friday, January 27. Thank you to our business sponsors and families listed below. We are grateful for your commitment to St. John! Proceeds help support the costs of running the school’s largest fundraising event. As of today, we are $10,000 short of our sponsorship goal.
