In this month of giving thanks, the Sisters and staff of Sacred Heart Villa are so very grateful for the support we receive from our students’ families, the local community, and alumni of our school. We could never have lasted these long 82 years without your financial assistance. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of the entire program at any private school. Fundraising is a necessity.
Over the years, fundraising has taken on different approaches. In the 1940’s, Sr. Felicetta began giving piano lessons, and in the 1980’s, she sold her home-made pasta. Now we have virtual raffles, a TopGolf tournament (Thursday, November 11th), online popcorn sales, virtual wine tasting events, etc. This coming spring will mark our 10th annual Heart of Hearts dinner auction. Even this event took on a new look going virtual due to Covid in 2021.
In August of 2020 we started our “Dine with Donors” to support local restaurants which have supported Sacred Heart Villa. These restaurants have given The Villa a portion of their sales. Over $8,000 have been received from the generous owners of these establishments. Some of the owners expressed thanks to us for sending new customers their way who continue to dine with them. This month we will Dine with Donors at Pietro’s on Wednesday, November 17th for lunch and dinner. This family-run South City establishment has been very generous to The Villa over the years. You can dine in, carry out or have pick up of your orders in the rear parking lot. You can also add on a few of their house-made frozen pizzas to have in your freezer when you need a quick meal. Their extensive menu for online ordering can be seen here: https://www.toasttab.com/pietros/v3#!/
On November 10th, we will start our online Popcornopolis popcorn sale. The sale will run until December 9th. Buy some delicious popcorn, made fresh in Los Angeles, CA. A full 50% of your order goes back to our school with no fees. You get amazing Popcornopolis popcorn, and The Villa gets much-needed funding. If you have never tried this incredible popcorn, treat yourself and your family. They offer a variety of flavors and sizes.

We are most grateful for the generous support of our ministry so we can be the hands and heart of Christ to the precious little ones entrusted to our care. Your financial help keeps this school vibrant and strong. God bless you for your assistance.
