#SJPicnic Fundraising Campaign


For 171 years, St. Joe’s has relied upon the support of volunteers to make every Picnic a success. Although this year’s Picnic looks very different than events of the past, you can still volunteer to help St. Joe’s kids by registering yourself or group to be a #SJPicnic fundraiser. Participants have the chance to win fun prizes by competing to see who raises the most funds for St. Joe’s kids!

Cake Booth Virtual Trivia Night


Time: 6 pm (EST)

Location: Zoom link provided upon entry


Just because there isn’t a physical Cake Booth this year, doesn’t mean we can’t have fun virtually! It’s just like an in-person Trivia Night, but played over Zoom. A team can be 1-5 people. Not all team members need to be in the same location as each team is given a maximum of two log-ins. Prizes include:
1st Place – Summer Party Pack from Heitzman’s Bakery – Value $100
2nd Place – Specialty Cake from Plehns
3rd Place – A 3-pack Tower from Nothing Bundt Cakes
