With the little drama, this to show appreciation to the team that raised the highest funds.

I hope that this would ignite a spirit of competiveness, and thus boost morale in fundraising.

Fundraising includes contributions, Bobo night, card games, and sales of cooked and uncooked foods throughout the month.

Next day, the new month that was on Sunday 1 August after the Holy Mass celebration, the fundraising committee announced the wining group. The highest raised funds to be crowned, and have the privilege of first serve at the table.
