2022 Christmas Card Fundraiser Recipient Nomination Form


A long-standing tradition at SMSA continues again this year with the Christmas Card Fundraiser! Students in Grades 4 through 8 will be creating and selling handmade Christmas Cards.  These cards will be sold for $2.00 each by the St. Mary’s Springs families after all the masses at Holy Family Parish sites on Saturday, December 3rd and Sunday, December 4th. 


We will also be having a movie and popcorn afternoon, the day before Christmas Break, where students can bring in a donation to watch the movie of their choice and enjoy popcorn.  Everyone will be able to participate, whether they bring in a donation or not.


All proceeds from the card sale and movie/popcorn will go to benefit a local child (Fond du Lac County) and his/her family, who is currently or has had medical concerns/conditions.  Last year our Christmas Card Sale raised $4,200 for 9-year-old Mason Abraham and his family!


If you know of a child and their family that you feel is deserving of a nomination, please fill out the form in the link provided below.  All nominations will be reviewed and a recipient will be chosen by random draw.

The meal will be buffet style and will include two pasta options, chicken, baby red potatoes, a vegetable, as well as a salad and drinks.

RSVP’s are needed right away.  Please let Samantha Baker (cell 920-251-1882) know if your child plans to attend and also if your child will be bringing a date so we have a head count for the evening.  The head count is due to the Radisson by this Saturday September 17th so please send your RSVP to Samantha by noon on Saturday, September 17th.
