Allegheny County Div. 4 Donates to 12 Angel Funds

The Tuition Assistance Fund Committee of the AOH St. Patrick Division 4 of the North Hills held a check presentation ceremony on Friday, March 13, at St. Alphonsus Parish in Wexford for twelve Catholic elementary schools from the North Side and North Hills. St. Alphonsus is in the midst of celebrating their 175th year as a parish and 125th anniversary of their school.  Each school received $750 for their Angel Funds. They were Assumption School (Bellevue), Northside Catholic, Christ the Divine Teacher Academy (Aspinwall), St. Alexis (McCandless), St. Alphonsus (Wexford), St. Bonaventure (Shaler), St. James (Sewickley), St. Kilian (Cranberry), St. Mary (Glenshaw), St. Sebastian (Ross), St. Teresa of Avila (Perrysville) and St. Ursula in Hampton.  Due to prior commitments and last minute issues, only six of the twelve schools could be present. The monies raised for this event comes from AOH Division 4’s Irish Heritage Golf Classic held in late September at Diamond Run Golf Club in Ohio Township. The event has been held the last seven years and has raised nearly $25,000 for the mentioned schools.
