BCCHS, KMC to compete for appetites to benefit hungry Catholic school students
Freddy’s proceeds will go to BackPack 4 Kids
Bishop Carroll and Kapaun Mt. Carmel high schools are competing off the field and away from the court next month to help hungry Catholic elementary school students.
Wichita’s two Catholic high schools will appeal to the public’s stomachs in order to satisfy their hearts at a fundraiser to benefit the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s Backpack 4 Kids program.
Eight teams from each school will compete in an attempt to attract the most customers at Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers at 420 S. Ridge Road and at 11525 E. 13th St. N. between 10:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. on All Saints Day, Wednesday, Nov. 1.
Team members will be soliciting support for the competition after Masses throughout the metro area by handing out tickets from their team. Customers are asked to tell the cashier they are part of the St. Vincent de Paul Backpacks 4 kids program and drop their team ticket in the donation box. The winning team from each school will receive a trophy.
The two high schools will also benefit from the competition. Ronald Morley and Petrina Krimm-Morley have agreed to match – up to $5,000 – the amount collected by the Freddy’s fundraiser. That will be equally divided between the schools for each school’s St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School Fund.

St. Joe students help diocesan seminarians
WICHITA – Students of St. Joseph School raised $300 at their annual Seminarian Popcorn Sale Friday, Sept. 22.

The proceeds of the sale will be donated to help in the education and formation of the seminarians of the diocese.
