WINGS AUCTION 2020

Dear St. Edward Community, 

 

First of all, I hope this email finds you well. Please know you and your family continue to be in my prayers. 

 

I am writing to tell you our 23rd annual auction and community celebration, Wings 2020 ~ Classic TV Returns, will follow the school's lead and transition to a 100% online format this year. The health and safety of our Community is always our first priority. Where there is challenge, there is opportunity! That opportunity lies in us creatively designing our first-ever Virtual Wings! 

 

Let me start with some amazing news. After conversations with all our Sponsors and Patrons, I am excited to share with you that $403,500 has been recommitted to Wings 2020 ~ Classic TV Returns! Our Sponsors and Patrons shared their love of St. Ed's and genuine concern for our Edsmen and their families. The generosity of the St. Edward Community is unparalleled, and we are overwhelmed with gratitude. We have listed our wonderful Sponsors, Patrons and other Supporters below. 

 

The Wings Auction is always an amazing celebration of our Community. It is the party of the year, a sell-out crowd for eight years running and this year was shaping up to be no exception. Our "West-Wing Chairs": Traci and Tim Coyne '87, Megan and Jim Fox '86 and Roberta and Dan Mitchell '86 began last fall securing a record number of Sponsorships. The Acquisitions Decorations Committee, led by John '78 and Nick '03 Goers, brainstormed new and creative ways to transform our school and welcome our guests into TV Land. Already, thousands of hours have been spent by our volunteers, faculty, staff, and Chairs in preparation for Wings 2020. 

 

After lengthy discussions, we determined that postponing this event was not a viable option. Each year, the success of Wings greatly impacts our budget, primarily our ability to provide tuition assistance to our families. This year's net goal of $600,000 provides essential financial aid and scholarship dollars. We are exploring virtual ways to create a memorable auction and will be communicating soon on how you can have fun and support Wings. 

 

In the meantime, and in a nod to Classic TV, I share this quote from Mr. Fred Rogers with you: 

 

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 

Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." 

 

You can always look to St. Ed's if you want to find the helpers! 

 

St. Andre Bessette, C.S.C., pray for us!
