Annual Auction

Each year St. Mark has an auction. The 11th Annual Auction will be held on April 2, 2011 at the Itoo Hall in Peoria. This is a fun evening of fellowship and fundraising, and provides a significant amount of money to support the Church and school. The theme for the 2011 auction is “African Safari” as a tribute to our sister parish in Kitui, Kenya. If you would like more information about the auction or would like to make a donation, please contact Brenda O’Russa at the parish office

Scrip

Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop. Did you know you can raise money for St. Mark School while doing your everyday shopping and dining? All you have to do is purchase gift cards from St. Mark Scrip for local and national vendors and use them in place of cash, checks or credit cards for purchases you were going to make anyway! Each card purchased carries a contribution (profit) of 2-15% or more.

Gift cards are available from over 300 national and local retailers. Groceries, clothing, dining out, home improvement, even gasoline can all be purchased with Scrip. In the past several years, Scrip profits have totaled over $12,000 for St. Mark. Of that profit at least $5,000 is given to the school each year, over $3,800 is given back to the families, and the remaining profit is used to increase Scrip on-hand inventory.

What is in it for you? The first $100 profit earned by your family is retained by the St. Mark Scrip program. After the first $100 family profit, 50% of additional profits earned are returned to you in the form of a check.

Scrip can be purchased after each weekend mass, at the school during office hours or orders may be sent to school with your child and gift cards will be sent home on Friday. Orders received by Monday at 4 PM will be filled and available for pick up that Friday. To order scrip on-line, go to www.shopwithscrip.com. St. Mark enrollment code is 432EFF173494. Orders placed on-line may be paid for by check (received by 4PM Monday) or using Paypal.

If you have questions, contact Pat Nedza, St. Mark Scrip coordinator, at 309 697-4845 or at St. Mark School during office hours at 309 676-7131.
