St. Brendan Mothers' Club

Established with the opening of the school in 1947, the St. Brendan Mothers’ Club is a social and philanthropic organization with a strong tradition of service, camaraderie, and community. Every mother with a child at St. Brendan School is a member. The Club holds monthly meetings. The meetings switch bi-monthly between dinners and lunches so as to accommodate the often complicated schedules of both mothers who work outside the home and those who are primary caregivers.

 

The primary function of the St. Brendan Mothers’ Club is to raise funds to offset the difference of approximately $2,000 between the tuition charged and the actual cost to educate each child at the school. The Club coordinates two major events each year: the Christmas Boutique and Children’s Carnival, and the Annual Auction (in conjunction with the Men’s Club). Members of the Club bring their considerable and varied talents to bear in creating events that are fun for both the children and the community and that consistently yield remarkable results for the benefit of our students.

 

Other fundraisers and “fun-raisers” vary from year to year, and have included:

 

  • Fashion Show

  • Jog-a-thon

  • Read-a-thon

  • Bake Sales

  • Talent Show

  • Pub Quiz Night
