Spring Dinner


We have made the difficult decision to cancel our Annual Spring Dinner this year due to the uncertainty and severity of COVID-19. Because this is our Parish’s largest fundraiser and community event of the year, it was not an easy decision.  But after guidance from the Diocese and Father, we have decided it is best for you and your families, to not have this event in person. With that being said, we have decided to move forward with an online version of our event.  Now more than ever, we need your support. This transition will be a success with your help.  We ask you share information about the event with your friends and family and on social media.

Spring Dinner Tickets/Tables Purchased

Rest assured, that your ticket purchase is fully tax deductible and will now apply as a donation. However, if you would like to request a full refund, please contact Kara at karatilson@hotmail.com or 402-699-2703.

Raffle Tickets & Monetary Donations 

The Spring Dinner committee made the decision to no longer hold a raffle ticket drawing. Any tickets already sold will be refunded, unless those who purchased tickets would like to apply it as a monetary (tax deductible) donation. A monetary donation will help offset revenue made from raffle and dinner tickets sales.

** Important for StJB school families** This change means the “Non-Uniform” incentive for the 2020-21 school year will be replaced with a NEW INCENTIVE. Each school family is now asked to make a monetary tax-deductibledonation of $100 (per family) toward the Spring Dinner. This donation will allow your child(ren) to receive a non-uniform day on Fridays during the 2020-2021 school year.  A friend, family member or parishioner can also make a donation on your child(ren)’s behalf. Your donation must be received by April 25, 2020. Please be sure to seal your donation in an envelope, marking on the envelope “Spring Dinner Donation and your child(ren)’s name on it so they receive credit. Donations can be mailed or dropped off to the school or Rectory office. Or, you can drop off your donation to Noni Thiesen at the Church rectory.

Auction Donations

We are still in great need of both monetary and in-kind gifts (donations of products/items, a service or special talent) for our auction. We appreciate everyone who has already donated items, or took an item from the WISH LIST board located in the Church Commons to purchase. Please know, we need ALL auction item donations must be received by April 14, 2020, in order to be included in the ONLINE auction. If possible, please fill out an auction donation form or label your items to include your name, a description of the items and approximate value. Auction donations can be dropped off  in the St. Joseph’s room at the church.
