What an extraordinary week it has been at Lexington Catholic High School! The excitement began with our first full Hoagie event since 2019, making it a truly special week for our community. Saturday morning was nothing short of incredible, thanks to the AMAZING KNIGHTS who dedicated their time and energy to this cause. Being a part of the Lexington Catholic community is undeniably a blessing.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who contributed to the success of Hoagies 2023. 350 volunteers helped on Saturday with over 500 helping from Prep Week to Hoagie Day! Your dedication, enthusiasm, and hard work transformed this fundraiser into a remarkable achievement for our school. It was an absolute joy collaborating with all of you!
A big THANK YOU goes out to the volunteers who signed up, sold, purchased, and delivered hoagies. Your efforts did not go unnoticed. We appreciate those who worked tirelessly during prep week and Saturday morning. Special thanks are also due to our facilities staff for their invaluable support.
This fundraiser not only brought our community together but also served a larger purpose. Through the proceeds benefiting the uKnight Fund, we are assisting those in need by providing tuition assistance. Additionally, our outreach to the Catholic Action Center made a significant impact. The donated hoagies, nearly 5,000 in total, will be put to good use immediately and during the upcoming winter months. CAC was thrilled to receive them, and your generosity will undoubtedly make a difference in the lives of others.
