Swing Fundraiser

Diamond Jubilee: Celebrating 75 Years of Highland Catholic School

May 1, 2021 

Montreal Site (Urban Academy) 1668 Montreal Avenue, St. Paul

Swing would not be possible without support from volunteers, and the generosity of local businesses and organizations.

We are planning an in-person Swing 2021 Gala.

·         Family Fun Event the morning of May 1, at the Montreal site fields.

·         Gala on the evening of May 1, Montreal gym (Urban Academy) that includes a silent and live auction, delicious food and drinks and music!

·         An online auction will be launched in mid-April.

·         Given the uncertainty of COVID, hybrid and virtual plans will also be developed.

One of the best ways to get involved in our community is through volunteerism. Please review the list of opportunities, below, and sign up! It is a wonderful opportunity to gather with old friends, get to know new families and have fun!

SWING History:
In 1999, a group of Highland Catholic School supporters launched a “School Carnival for Adults.” Their vision quickly became a reality and Swing has thrived for 20+ years. The Swing fundraiser is Highland Catholic’s biggest fundraiser that directly benefits students, teachers, and families. Proceeds support Highland Catholic School’s general operating budget. Funds support stable tuition rates, access to specialists, extra programming, technology upgrades and improvements in the facilities.

Thank you 2020 Swing Sponsors!

Please patronize these business and help us thank them for their support of Highland Catholic School!
