What began as a backyard conversation by a couple of parents in 1982 resulted in the largest fund raiser for St. Edmond Catholic Schools. An idea was brought to the administration of St. Edmond about a way to raise money for the school. Denny & Elaine Huss and John and Connie Bruner investigated the event with other schools to see exactly what this new concept in fund-raising was all about. Because of a couple of dedicated couples and their desire to support the school, the St. Edmond Ball was born. The Huss's and Bruner's agreed to accept the role of the first co-chairs of the St. Edmond Ball. Little did they know at that time, what a success and what a major role it would play in the support of St. Edmond.
We have been lucky to have many dedicated couples co-chair this event since it first started, each lending their flair to the ball. The money that the ball has raised has played a major part in supporting our students and families at St. Edmond. The ball is held the first Saturday in May at the Best Western Starlite Village in Fort Dodge. We hope that you will help invest in our students future by supporting this event. It's a great time for our families and community to come together for a cause that is work the investment.
This year's ball co-chairs, Dave & Debbie Flattery and Don & Michelle Woodruff have already began meeting and are very excited to start planning for the event on May 6, 2017. Please mark this date on your calendar and make plans to attend the ball. The ball is our major fund raiser and has helped to support all of the students and programs that St. Edmond offers.
Friends of St. Edmond Golf Outing
Lose family gets together most every year at the SE Golf Outing
The Friends of St. Edmond Golf Outing was added in 1990. Alumni and supporters gather together on the golf course for a friendly game of golf on the Friday before the Ball. In the many years that it has been played, there has only been one year that it had to be rescheduled due to weather and that was in 2013 because of snow!
The St. Edmond Ball has become a very successful way of raising money and bringing our families and supporters together to celebrate our Catholic school and what it means to the community
This year's golf outing is on May 5, 2017 at the Fort Dodge Country Club. To play, contact Tom Miklo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
