Early Bird Drawing is February 27th at 3:00pm!

The St. Patrick's Day Raffle and Party is Archbishop Walsh's fun winter-time party.    

Tickets for this event are $100. Each ticket is automatically entered into all of the cash drawings throughout the evening, with prizes totaling $34,000. Each ticket also admits two people into the party - generally held the last Saturday in March - where there is food, beer, wine, a DJ and a good time. All proceeds benefit the schools and the Walsh Sports Booster Club.                

From humble beginnings in 1986, the St. Patrick's Day Raffle has grown into a community-wide event that raises significant funds for both schools. A recently discovered letter indicates that the original intent of the fundraiser was to solicit money so that the Walsh basketball team could travel to Ireland. Dr. John Watson, coach of the team at that time, initiated the idea of taking the team to Ireland and approached the Walsh Booster Club to fund it in this manner.

Nearly 30 years later, the St. Patrick's Day Raffle and Party continues to benefit students attending both Walsh and STCS and we look forward to once again welcoming the community to our schools for this fun event. For more information on this fundraiser, please contact the advancement office at 716.372.8122.  


Congratulations to the 2018 Winners!
