The Card Party is the school’s largest fundraiser of the year, thanks to the generosity of our parents, guests and the hard work of the volunteers on the Card Party Committee. 

Please consider lending a hand to help raise funds for our children’s school.  Not only will you be directly contributing to improving the environment in which our children learn, but it is a great opportunity for new families of St. Francis de Sales to meet other parents and get involved in school activities.  

There are many ways you can help, with different levels of commitment.  Our responsibilities vary from: 
  • Selling raffle tickets before and during the Card Party;  
  • Help seek donations from various businesses and companies;  
  • Help with decorations and set-up the night before and the day of the Card Party    

Anyone interested in helping, please feel free to send an email to sfdscardparty@aol.com

We have been blessed over the years with the hard work and dedication that all our volunteers have put in to making the Card Party such a successful and enjoyable night.  To date our children have benefited greatly from this event, our largest fundraiser.  Without volunteers, none of this is possible.  We look forward to hearing from you.
