Fun, Fun and More Fun!

Hello Holy Cross Friends and Family:

We are so excited for the FIRST EVER Holy Cross BBQ Competition!  By now you have surely seen flyers for this event in the school's weekly newsletter, and the church bulletin.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 22, and start the countdown---you WILL NOT be disappointed!  What you can expect at this family friendly event:
  • Fun, fun, and MORE FUN!!!
  • An exciting competition (CASH PRIZES and bragging rights)
  • Surprise hometown celebrity judge-Great American Barbecue GRAND CHAMPION, KCBS judge, and local restaurant owner
  • Delicious concessions (pulled pork and ribs) to be sold
  • Beer brewing session and home brew sampling brought to you by Black Lightening Running Club (they don't run, but they sure know how to create a delicious brew)--all beer is complimentary at this event
  • Debut of our Holy Cross Spirit Store, bumper stickers and cups for sale, and t-shirts for order, all featuring our brand new heart HC design!
  • 50/50 Raffle and prize giveaway (You could literally win half of a pig---just ask Kim Pham, our pig prize winner from B&B)
  • To celebrate Earth Day, Mrs. G (fourth grade teacher) has invited all students and children to assist her in a community art project.  The children (and adults) will get to take part in creating a mural from recycled materials
  • Photo op with a REAL old fashioned fire engine---the kids won't want to miss that!
If all the above excitement isn't enough to reel you in, how about fundraising for our school and another great cause. The proceeds will help fund our newly implemented language learning curriculum.  In addition, 30% of total proceeds will go to Operation Breakthrough, a more than worthy cause.  Operation Breakthrough exists to provide safe, loving, and educational environments for young children living in poverty here in the KCMO area.
