SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Sioux City Convention Center hosted a big fundraiser Sunday. All proceeds from the evening benefit the 16 Catholic school systems of the Sioux City diocese.
Officials say more than 700 guests came out and they raised more than $125,000 from ticket sales and sponsorships.
Guests enjoyed live music and dinner. KTIV's Ron Demers served as the evening's emcee. Church officials say it's an exciting time to be part of the Catholic education system.
"We're here to stay and we're grateful to the state that allows us to have tuition assistance programs that tax payers can get a break and also benefit from the help that the state has allowed us to receive," said Bishop R. Walker Nickless, diocese of Sioux City.
Former Leave it to Beaver star Jerry Mathers served as the evening's keynote speaker.
