Soar: A Night Benefiting Cardinal Scholars

St. Matthew’s School is excited for our second-annual event, Soar: A Night Benefiting Cardinal Scholars! St. Matthew’s school families and church members are invited to a fun evening that will include a variety of ways to support our students.

Located within Rustic Manor’s beautifully renovated barn, we’ll provide tasty, heavy appetizers, hosted house wine and domestic beer, and live music by One Too Many Band. There will also be a full cash bar, incredible silent auction items, and the opportunity to connect with church and school families.

The three areas supported by the night’s fundraising activities are:

  1. Outdoor Learning: With our ever-growing student body, St. Matthew’s is hoping to expand our outdoor learning spaces! Money raised from Soar will be used towards purchasing additional playground equipment.
  2. Cardinal’s NEST: St. Matthew’s parent-teacher group, Cardinal’s NEST, provides parenting support, educational activities for families, and funds for unbudgeted requests for classrooms, teachers, and special projects. 
  3. Tuition Assistance: It is our prayer that we bring every person within our area of influence closer to Christ. St. Matthew’s School offers various grants, scholarships, and discounts for all interested families depending on need and circumstances. 

Thanks to your generous support, last year we raised $50,000.  St. Matthew’s School was blessed to be able to furnish new classrooms, purchase livestream equipment, and provide tuition assistance. 

Tickets for this year’s Soar event will go on sale in early December.
