St. Ambrose of Woodbury Catholic School invites the community to its annual fundraising event. The Spring Shindig includes dinner and drinks, a live auction, a raffle for a snazzy new car, and live music. Assistant principal Erin Nemetz says, “Last year, our Spring Shindig raised over $60,000 to support our long-term tuition endowment fund. We hope to exceed that amount this year. This fund is used to help families in need of financial assistance experience the wonderful, Catholic education that Saint Ambrose has to offer.”
