Hawaiian Luau raises money for St. Bridget School

The St. Bridget Gala was a success this year, according to St. Bridget Parish School Principal Sue Steckbauer. She said the event drew about 300 people and brought in an estimated $110,000. The annual event typically draws around 285-300 guests and raises money to support the school. Some items the school plans to spend money on this year are more technology, the social studies curriculum, a gym entrance sign and window replacement. 1 / 3
