St. Mary Catholic School held its annual football raffle tickets sale.  The raffle consisted of two tickets to the November 2, Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle Seahawks game, a one-night stay at the Hampton’s Inn in Arlington, Texas, and a $300.00 Visa gift card for travel and meal expenses.  The school set a goal of selling 500 tickets, which would allow a randomly selected student from each grade to participate in a water balloon fight with Coach Beth Banderio.  St. Mary Catholic School exceeded our goal and had a blast with the water balloon fight.  Father Daleo drew the winner of the raffle on Sunday, October 11 at the 10 a.m. mass, which was Mr. Will Rogers, center, from Mauriceville, Texas.  Rogers was notified of his winnings after the drawing by Donna Darby, right, principal.  A parent of a student at St. Mary Catholic School sold the winning ticket. Rogers is also a relative of a St. Mary student, Olivia Grant, left.
