Community members gathered to join a crusade for education at Bishop Hogan Memorial School Saturday night which featured a catered meal and a fund-raising auction to benefit Chillicothe’s only Catholic school.
Decorated in a Renaissance theme with lighted conical hats and feather toppers on each table, the school’s gymnasium set the stage for an successful event which brought in more than $58,000 for the school. “The students and community of Bishop Hogan would like to thank the many individuals and businesses who made this event a great success,” said Father Tom Hermes, principal of Bishop Hogan School and pastor of St. Columban Catholic Church.
More than 300 people attended the 6th annual event.
