Live Auction Giving Opportunities

Raise the Paddle Thank You Gonzaga!

During this season of Thanksgiving, there are countless reasons to be thankful for the gift of Gonzaga. Tonight, we hope you will raise your paddle and give a gift in appreciation for what Gonzaga has given to your son and your family. Give in honor of your son’s favorite teacher or coach... Or in recognition of the impact a retreat or service project had on him... Or as a shout-out to a team, club or extracurricular activity that has enriched your time at Gonzaga... Or as thanks for the friendships he has formed while on Eye Street. Regardless of what you’re most thankful for, we hope you will give generously when Rev. Stephen Planning, S.J. invites you to raise your paddle! All gifts raised during the raise the paddle portion of the Gala go to support the Gonzaga Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is one of the primary sources of faculty, scholarship and operational support for the school. Thank you for your generous support!

Giving Opportunities The Father McKenna Center Table in the Carmody Center

Established in 1983 by St. Aloysius Parish to carry on the legacy of Fr. Horace B. McKenna, the saintly associate pastor of St. Al’s, who dedicated his ministry to the service of the poor and marginalized in the community, the Father McKenna Center is proud to count Gonzaga College High School and the Gonzaga Mothers Club as vital partners in our work to serve the homeless and very low income families who rely on us each day. The Father McKenna Center operates a Day Shelter for men struggling with homelessness, serving 100+ men daily. We offer basic services (food, clothing, mail, etc.) to entice the men to engage our case managers so they can move to the right next step. The Center provides a Hypothermia Program (November to March) to provide a warm bed for 18-20 men. We also operate a Food Pantry serving 200+ families each month, offering quality fresh produce, bread, milk, eggs, meat and an array of nonperishable foods. Today Gonzaga students serve in our Food Pantry – helping us meet the needs of 200+ families from the neighborhoods around Gonzaga find the groceries they need to feed themselves – and in our Day Shelter program – serving Midday Meal to 50+ men struggling with homelessness. The Gonzaga Mothers’ Club provides dinner each evening for our Hypothermia Program that provides 18-20 men a safe and secure place to stay through the winter, while they work to secure a job, a transitional or permanent place to live or other “right next step” for them.

How Can You Help? • Volunteer – our small staff (of 7) always needs people to help serve a meal, help in the food pantry, in our clothing distribution program or in myriad other ways. • Sign up to be part of the Gonzaga Mothers Club Hypothermia Program by providing or serving dinner to the men. Check on the Gonzaga Mothers Club webpage under the McKenna Center tab for more information. Please visit our table in the Carmody Center, so we can say “Thank You!” and to receive a special memento from the Father McKenna Center team.

The Gonzaga Christmas Gala


Giving Opportunities The Gonzaga Christian Service Program Each year, the Gonzaga student body enjoys a breadth of opportunities for service through which students deepen their own commitment to doing justice, acting with love, and fulfilling their religious call to discipleship. Four years ago, following the retirement of Sr. Seton Cunneen, SND the Campus Ministry office took up the tradition of service that she fostered so passionately in the community. The school’s Christian Service program includes both local, weekly service opportunities as well as more extensive immersion experiences. During the school year, students dedicate time to serving meals with the Father McKenna Center as well as with the Campus Kitchen Program in the District. Other students travel to the Washington Jesuit Academy where they play chess and mentor younger students or to our neighboring senior center, Unique Residential, where they engage residents in conversation, card games, or an introduction to the internet and the use of a computer. Additionally, students are drawn to grow in their commitment to a faith that does justice through a rich service immersion program that brings students to vulnerable communities. This year’s trips will include weeks in Camden, NJ, one of the east coast’s most economically struggling cities, a week in South Dakota partnering with students at Red Cloud Indian School. Our students will investigate the realities of immigration at the US border with Mexico in Nogales, Arizona as well as with two groups making homestays with immigrant farmworkers in Apopka, Florida. Groups will visit two Catholic lay intentional communities—Kansas City’s Jerusalem Farm Community and Salem, West Virginia’s Nazareth Farm—where they will focus on community building and environmentally sustainable practices. For the second time, Gonzaga will send a group to Los Angeles to stay with Dolores Mission for a trip that will include encounters with Homeboy Industries and the work of Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ. In addition, we hope to have a group renew an older immersion in Quito, Ecuador and the Working Boy’s Center. On these extraordinary service trips, Gonzaga students are given the opportunity to make working with the poor a “habit of the heart”. Through their encounters with the people of these communities, they are invited to understand injustices present in the world even as they are invited to share more the hopes and anxieties of those suffering. The list of service opportunities at Gonzaga is robust and students are welcome to stop in the Campus Ministry Office any time. A variety of clubs and teams facilitate additional opportunities to serve those in need. The proceeds from tonight’s coat check will benefit Gonzaga’s summer service projects. Thank you for your generosity.

Full Sun Landscapes 802. Comprehensive Estate Planning Seasons on Eye Street Lincoln Park Associates principal Don Marlais, parent to Madden (’23), is offering comprehensive estate planning session to the winning bidder. Estate planning is not something people really want to think about, but it makes things much easier for loved ones down the road. While most people are familiar with wills, most people have moved away from using them to transfer their assets to descendants because of complications and cost. A comprehensive estate plan typically involves the creation of the following documents: Revocable Living Trust, Last Will and Testament, Certificate of Trust, Master Assignment, Durable Power of Attorney for Finance and Business Affairs, and an Advance Medical Directive. Don will explain the purpose of each of these documents, and he will review why the trust is the key document to avoiding probate, how wills are key to appointing a guardian and dealing with your personal property, and how a power of attorney and advance directive will ensure others can make decisions for you in the event you become incapacitated. Don has office space at The Yard (7th and Penn SE) or can meet with you at your home or office. Winning bidder should contact Don at don@ lincolnparkassociates.com or (202) 330-3965. Mutually agreeable time, including evenings and weekends.
