Race for Education 2019

OLGC’s 2019 Race for Education: Memo


On Friday, May 10, 2019, Our Lady of Good Counsel School will be conducting our annual Race for Education. The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise $20,000 to construct OLGC’s new STEM Program and lab. Details of the race and instructions were sent out in a special edition Race newsletter yesterday.

The success of Race for Education relies on the number of sponsors and the amounts of their donations. Sponsors can be anyone such as relatives, friends, neighbors, business associates, coaches, doctors, and anyone who would like to sponsor your child(ren) and invest in their Catholic Education.

This year we are introducing a new user friendly, interactive and customizable online component, in addition to labels for postcard mailers. Our online component will enable you and your child(ren) to personalize your own webpage on our larger Race donation website in an effort to petition your child’s sponsors electronically. To visit our Race donation website, please click HERE.

We would like all of our students to participate in obtaining their sponsors and provide another option for you to notify your child’s sponsors.

Label sheets were also sent home (one per student). Please have your student (if possible) fill in potential sponsor’s addresses on their label sheets. Please return the label sheet and the yellow envelope (used for future mailings) before Friday, April 26th. If you would like more label sheets at any time, please let us know.

Students will receive credit for their labels towards one of the contests. Two grand prizes are offered this year: one for the class that receives the most sponsors online and one for the class who brings in the most labels for the postcard mailers. For more details on our contests, please refer to the “Prizes” section on our Race newsletter.

Sponsors will have until Monday, May 13th to donate on behalf of your student before our electronic Race site will close. The mail-in donations may continue to be sent into school throughout the end of the year.

Sponsors may also send a check made out to OLGC School, including your student’s name to:
Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic School
611 Knowles Avenue
Southampton, PA 18966

We thank you in advance for your generosity and in helping us spread the word to reach our goal of $20,000. The new STEM Program benefits all students and is a critical component in the advancement of our students’ education.
