You are about to win something very, very special. This was the fortune cookie message I received the night before the auction. I shared this fortune with everyone as part of my opening comments; "We've anticipated KATCH for 365 days, excited for the people in this room, to unexpectedly win something very, very special." Little did I know that I would be the one who was the unexpected recipient of something very, very special.
We are looking for parent volunteers for our Lancers Against Cancer event on May 12-13. Lancers Against Cancer is a Relay For Life event that we host here at Kennedy Catholic High School.

We play games, have a community dinner, a luminaria event, and always have people walking laps throughout the evening. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Greg Caldwell.
