More than 300 members of Saints Faith, Hope and Charity School and Parish came together Saturday, March 12, for the congregation’s biggest fundraiser of the year: The Blarney Bash.

The annual party — plus a mail-in campaign that began in September — was estimated to raise nearly $450,000 to benefit the Anchors with Heart Fund, which supports programming that is not otherwise covered by tuition, said Susie Smyth, a fifth-grade mom and the School Board president.
