Ping Pong Derby Roll

Dim lights

PingPongDerbyLogoA light rain and drizzle on October 17th had little effect on St. Raphael School setting a Guinness Book of World Record, albeit “unofficial”, as 5,000 ping pong balls were released from a high atop Eilings Park and propelled down the narrow course into a funnel where the first 20 balls came up winners for the lucky ticket holders.

1st Place $1,500

2nd Place - $500

3rd Place, Flat Screen T.V.

The event proceeds, which netted approximately $12,000 and included donations from businesses outside the school community, went into a separate school fund to support capital, endowment, and the scholarship needs of the school.

A big thank you to the school’s Development Committee who worked countless hours to ensure that the event went off as a big success.

Clay (Chair) & Sally Dickens, Mario & Theresa Coronado, Charlie & Michael Elbert, Lynette Naour, Dave & Liz Ruehlman, Kathy Koeper, Greg & Mary Anne Chambers, Shawn Walters, Tad & Linda Varesio, Pat & Tracy Pigatti, Matt Boeddeker, Steve Martin, Robert, Melanie, & Jeremy Zaida & Toby Fieldman

…and thank you our event sponsors.
