2022 brought another successful Catholic Schools Raffle at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School in Hastings. Teachers, staff and the surrounding community of Hastings united with students and their families to raise an outstanding total of $15,780 for the school. Since January 14, students of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton have been selling $5 raffle tickets as part of the Catholic Schools Raffle, a fundraising program provided free of charge by sponsor Catholic United Financial since 2009. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is one of 86 schools in Minnesota and South Dakota that were involved in 2022. Before that January start date, school leadership set an ambitious fundraising goal. Catholic United Financial provided all promotional materials, raffle tickets and prizes for the program at no cost. As the tickets were sold and money came in, families and staff counted their total. They were excited knowing that they keep every dollar their school raised. The six-week selling period concluded on February 27th.
