What is The Roar?


What we call the ROAR is a reverse raffle and silent auction at St. George Fellowship Hall in Fairlawn. The cost to attend is $110 per couple or $70 for an individual. This price includes a chance to win $2500, dinner, appetizers, and an open bar. Just by attending you are already contributing to St. Matthew School, while having fun and friends and family.

 Other raffles going on that evening are:

Chance to win Free Tuition for a whole year

50/50 raffle

Pot Luck raffle (new)

Heads-n-Tails game

Wine pull

Sideboard winnings (goes along with Reverse Raffle)

10th ticket hold-out Raffle

Dessert Auction

The night of the event there is also a silent auction. Here we have unique items that students have made, or experiences with their teachers you can bid on. There are also many items donated to our event that are included in our silent auction, and bigger items included in an oral auction too!! There is something for everyone from gift cards to electronics to jewelry to unique experiences. It really is a fun way to raise money for the school and have fun and bond with the school community.  We would love for you to invite grandparents, friends, or anyone that likes to have fun! You can even choose who you sit with! If you are new you can ask to sit with parents from your child’s class as well!


We really hope to see you there! It is a great event that really benefits your child. Remember- just by attending you help raise money for the school!
