Fobbe wins 2014 Focus


Father John Meyer hands over the keys for the 2014 Ford Focus to Chris Fobbe, who purchased two tickets in the annual raffle. She chose the car over the offer of $10,000 cash, which was a new option for 2014.

 

“I just can’t believe it,” Chris Fobbe said of winning a 2014 Ford Focus SE from Morrie’s Buffalo Ford in St. Timothy’s School’s annual car raffle.
Fobbe said she bought two tickets from two different friends and considered it her donation to the school because she was unable to attend the 17th annual St. Timothy’s School Spring Dinner Auction Saturday evening.
“When I got the call, I said, ‘You’re kidding me, you’re kidding me!’” Fobbe recalled. “I still don’t know what to say.”
One thing she did know was that she wanted the car rather than the new option of $10,000 cash.
She and husband, Scott, said their son, Lucas, has already asked if he could replace his vehicle with the new car, but they laughed off that notion.
Instead, Chris said she’ll be replacing her own 2003 wheels with the new mode of transportation.

Auction, dinner raises more than $75K

 

Editor
Kim Larson, who co-chaired the 17th annual St. Timothy's School Spring Dinner Auction with Jennifer Jude, had a good feeling leading up to the school's largest fundraiser.
"I knew the day and evening was going to be wonderful when the inspirational Bible quote for the day was, 'May your worries be light; may your joy be great; may your cup overflow,'" Larson said.
That passage foreshadowed the success of Saturday's fundraiser at The V by HH. Although official numbers are not in yet, it appears the school exceeded the past year's net total of about $75,000.
"This is due to the great continuing support of the community, parish members, parents, grandparents, past alumni and many others," Larson said. "We cannot thank you all enough for your generosity and support."
Father John Meyer also shared words of thanks.
