Ongoing & Upcoming Events

SOCIAL EVENTS & FUNDRAISERS
Night at the Races is set for April 28. Go to smaa-events.com for more info and to register for a night of horse racing-themed fun!

Our fundraisers have had a lot of success so far this school year, with the Tom Kalinoski Memorial Golf Outing in August, Euchre Tournament & Chili Night in October, and NCAA Bracket Challenge in March all combining to raise over $6000 to support our mission of providing quality athletics opportunities for the children of St. Michael Parish and School. Fundraising profits go directly to purchasing uniforms, equipment, and facilities for our teams, plus supporting our scholarship program for graduating 8th graders. In addition to the upcoming Night at the Races (Apr 28), pencil in Monday, Aug 6, 2018 for this summer's Golf Outing, and Saturday, Oct 27, 2018 for Euchre.

If you would like to help plan or run a fundraising event, or for sponsorship opportunities, please contact SMAAFundraising@gmail.com.
