Spreading Good Cheer

 

STA Cheer Teams Host Rally for Catholic Charities

Each November, over 300 cheerleaders from many local Dallas Catholic schools participate in STA's annual “Spreading Good Cheer” event to drive pantry donations for Catholic Charities and kick off the day's Catholic Bowl events. Cheerleaders from St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Monica, St. Paul, St. Mark, St. Rita, St. Patrick, Christ the King, St. Elizabeth of Hungary and All Saints came together in an exhibition of high spirits and skill with the goal of raising awareness and driving contributions to Catholic Charities of Dallas. The event also received support from Dallas Catholic high school cheerleaders from Cistercian, Bishop Lynch and Jesuit, who greet attendees, shoot photos, tally donations for each school as well as pack up the contributions. “With the holidays around the corner, we are always in great need of stocking up on pantry necessities like peanut butter to help our clients make ends meet through the season”, said Aaron Alarcon, Program Director for Catholic Charities.  The cheerleaders, along with approximately 400 attendees brought over 2,500 jars of peanut butter and raised over $12,500 in support in 2015. These contributions will provide significant assistance for families served by Catholic Charities!  St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School and St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School took home the Spreading Good Cheer large school and small school trophies for providing the largest combination of financial donations and jars of peanut butter.

Bishop Lynch's gym was packed with pep and cheer as the squads performed their routines and stunts. It is a wonderful way to end our season and serve our community. To view several videos from the event, visit Youtube and search for “Spreading Good Cheer”.
