Drawdown held at St. Bernard
The annual St. Bernard Prep School drawdown was held on Saturday, February 5, 2011 in the St. Bernard Fazi-Richard Athletic Center with over 500 attending. The drawdown is sponsored by the Saints Club, a group composed primarily of the parents of currently enrolled St. Bernard students.
The evening began with a silent auction of prizes ranging from artistic items to a weekend at a resort on the Gulf of Mexico. After dinner was served, the drawdown began. The culmination of the evening was the drawing of the last five tickets which designated this year’s winners.
The grand prize of $10,000 was awarded to Col. (ret) and Mrs. John Larkins of Gadsden, AL. Other prizes included $1000 given to the Knights of Columbus of Cullman, AL, $750 awarded to Mr. and Mrs. John Tekulve of Cullman, AL, $500 presented to Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Palmer of Decatur, AL, and $250 given to Gerard Chomskis of Cullman, AL.
Raymond Webb, President of SBP Booster Club was very pleased with the outcome of the evening. “Given the state of the economy we were very concerned, but St. Bernard alumni, parents, and friends in the community once again rallied together to make this the best Drawdown Dinner to date.”
The proceeds from the event support the athletic programs of the school.
