The Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children Annual Trustees Christmas Breakfast was on December 19th and, as it is every year, was a delight. The breakfast was hosted at Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy (OLGA) in Elizabeth, NJ. Principal of the school, Mrs. Patricia Cymbaluk, the students and staff were phenomenal. Guests mingled with the student ambassadors, they listened to the student choir sing holiday tunes, enjoyed a hearty breakfast and toured the school.
The highlight of the event is always the Student Panel session where some students ask Cardinal Tobin insightful, and funny, questions. Suffice to say we now know that Cardinal Tobin loves to workout at the gym (when he has the time). Cardinal Tobin asked one of the students what he did in his spare time. “I like to finish my homework a week in advance”, stated the student to a round of applause from all.
Cardinal Tobin handed out gifts to the student ambassadors and student choir. Thank you to Author Jason Kraus for the wonderful book with a loving story about a rescue animal called Belly Rubbins for Bubbins, The Story of a Rescue Dog that was given to the students at Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy. Mr. Kraus and his family were guests at our event. To find out more about their story visit bellyrubbinsforbubbins.com
