Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Out of the Blue Benefit and why is it important to Trinity?

The Out of the Blue Benefit is Trinity's only annual fundraiser that benefits the entire student body. It draws together Parents, Alumni, Staff, Corporate Sponsors of the Pre-Professional Internship Program and Community Supporters of Trinity. The joint efforts of all of these people help raise the funds necessary to support capital projects and provide financial assistance to Trinity's students.

As a proud Trinity Parent, what can I do to help make Out of the Blue a success?

There are many ways for Parents to get involved with the 2019 Out of the Blue Benefit! Whether you participate in the Out of the Blue Raffle, attend the Benefit with friends or family, or make a donation, you are contributing to the success of the event. We ask you select one of the following ways your family will support the 2019 Out of the Blue Benefit with a $100 commitment.

+ 1. Purchase an Out of the Blue Raffle ticket for $100
Purchase a ticket for this exciting raffle and get up to four chances to win $10,000! A ticket was mailed home to each Trinity Family at the end of July. If your family's ticket and payment is received by December 5, 2018, it will be entered into a Saint Nicholas Day drawing for a $1,000 prize! Whether you win or lose, your ticket will be re-entered into the drawing for a grand prize of $5,000, first prize of $3,000 and second prize of $1,000 on the night of the Out of the Blue Benefit.
  • Gather friends, family or co-workers to purchase multiple tickets with a lower per-person buy-in. Groups often split the cost of a $100 ticket 5 or 10 ways.
  • Contact the Office of Advancement to arrange to cover the cost of a raffle ticket for a needy family.
+ 2. Purchase two tickets to attend the Out of the Blue Benefit ($50 each)
Treat yourself to a fun night out while supporting Trinity! Event tickets include admission to the Out of the Blue Benefit, a catered dinner, an open bar and a bid number to participate in the live and silent auctions. Table sponsorship opportunities are also available.
+ 3. Make a $100 or more cash donation to the Out of the Blue Benefit
If you cannot attend the Out of the Blue Benefit or do not wish to purchase a raffle ticket, your cash donation of $100 or more is greatly appreciated! Please make your check payable to Trinity High School and mail it to: Trinity High School, Attn: Office of Advancement, 12425 Granger Road, Garfield Heights, OH 44125. You may also drop your check off in the main office during regular school hours. If you wish to make your donation using a credit card, please call 216-581-5757.
