Please mark your calendar for Saturday, November 1st, 2014 for the 6th Annual Jim O'Neill Scholarship Fund "Day at the Races" during the Breeder's Cup. The event starts at 1:00 PM in the Turf Room at Hawthorne Race Course, 3501 South Laramie Avenue in Cicero.
Jim was a 1966 graduate and a longtime friend of St. Rita High School. All the proceeds from this great event go directly to the Jim O'Neill Scholarship Fund established at the school to help those needy families with tuition assistance and financial aid. During the 2013-2014 academic year, St. Rita distributed over $ 1.4 million in tuition assistance and financial aid and the demand has not subsided. Every dollar raised through this event goes to help a family maintain their dream of a single-sex Catholic education for their son.
Please see the flyer for information to purchase tickets. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
