Dear Families and Friends of St. Mark School and the entire Catholic Community of Buffalo, North,

Please mark your calendars and plan to join Co-Chairs: Vera & Keith Carlino, Susan & Angelo Gambino, Erin & John Gerken and Kate & Matt Maleski and me for…

Lionheart 2024,
“Wake the Lion”
Saturday, June 8, 2024

As always, the evening will feature delicious food, an open bar, music, a silent auction, an exciting live auction, awards, and honoring our teachers. Join us for fun, fellowship, and lion pride.

Lionheart is St. Mark School's largest annual fundraising event. The monies raised help us to make necessary improvements to the school's campus. Past projects have included a new roof in 2019, new lockers, floor, and paint throughout the building in 2021 and 2022, and the new Nature Playground in 2023. Most importantly, the funds raised also help us to bridge the gap between what it costs to run the school and what our families pay in tuition. The success of this fundraiser helps prevent tuition increases.

Your participation helps in our commitment to continue innovating our curriculum, improving technology, and providing our faculty with what they need while keeping St. Mark affordable for our community. We hope for Lionheart to be an incredible event where we come together as a St. Mark School Community and a Family of Parishes to support the students of St. Mark and their Catholic Education.

When we stick together and give back, our students move forward. This year, we must “Wake the Lion.”

Lionheart 2024 needs YOU! We are excited to welcome first time participants and welcome back all our school parents, past supporters, St. Mark Alumni, family members, and all the parishioners and friends of the Catholic Community of Buffalo, North to our campus for Lionheart 2024.

It is YOUR support which ensures Lionheart 2024 will be the success it needs to be!

Stay tuned for more information from our Co-Chairs through email and the bulletin. Thanks for helping us out in any way you can, and we hope to celebrate with you at the main event. 

Fr. David Richards, Pastor
