The Ladies’ Association of Conwell-Egan (L.A.C.E.) Catholic High School in Fairless Hills sponsors fundraising events and supports school activities throughout the year.
Membership is open to all women that currently have a student(s) attending Conwell-Egan Catholic or alumni and supporters of Bishop Conwell, Bishop Egan or Conwell-Egan Catholic (CEC).
Funds raised are donated to CEC to make improvements to the school’s facilities and campus.
In 2019, L.A.C.E. donated $15,000 for the purchase of new tables and chairs in the school cafeteria.
In 2018, L.A.C.E. donated $8,000 for the purchase of custom-made rugs for the school’s entrances.
The group also donated $9,000 for six new environmentally friendly water fountains located inside the school.
In addition, the group raised $22,000 for the digital sign in front of the school on Wistar Road that informs the community about upcoming school activities.
This year, because of the pandemic, everything was put temporarily on hold until further notice.
L.A.C.E. will be working with the school administration to identify what to purchase from its fundraising efforts for the 2020 school year.
The group’s fundraising activities include a fall and spring craft fair, Thanksgiving pie sale, bus trips and other student-related events.
L.A.C.E frequently provides snacks, refreshments, water ice and pretzels for numerous school activities.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all L.A.C.E. fundraising events for the school and monthly membership meetings are cancelled for the 2020 school year.
This includes L.A.C.E.’s annual Fall Craft Fair, which is traditionally held in early November at Conwell-Egan.
L.A.C.E. hopes to resume fundraising and other activities in 2021.
L.A.C.E. will gladly accept any donations in the interim.
If you would like to donate to L.A.C.E. and directly support CEC students, please e-mail L.A.C.E.’s treasurer, Maryanna Phinn, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, or call or text 215-208-5810, or donate directly through Venmo @Maryanna-Phinn and include your e-mail address and contact information so L.A.C.E. can send you a receipt for your donation.
