Bringing of the green to FACE fundraiser

Those planning to attend the annual fundraiser for FACE — Family Aid-Catholic Education — are invited to not just wear green to the St. Patrick’s Day event, but to bring some as well.

FACE’s Gala Auction, the organization’s biggest fundraising event of the year, is planned for March 17 at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. More than 400 people attended the event at the museum last year.

The evening will feature opportunities to meet FACE students and friends, celebrate with the FACE community, and enjoy refreshments along with dinner while participating in silent and live auctions.

All proceeds will be used to provide tuition

assistance to students attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland. This year, 549 students are attending schools with the help of grants from FACE.

Elementary school students receive grants of $1,750, while high school students receive $3,050. Students receive grants at 35 elementary schools and nine high schools. The Class of 2011 included 58 FACE recipients; 100 percent graduated and 98 percent are continuing their education at a two- or four-year institution.

FACE’s challenge, however, remains great: More than 1,500 qualified students remain on a waiting list for assistance.
