Gabriel Brennan is a senior at O’Connell College Preparatory School. As a senior, he needed to find a project that would help demonstrate his skills in problem-solving, decision-making, and independent learning skills. His project had to meet three criteria: take place at a charity or non-profit, be meaningful, and make a difference in someone’s life. Gabriel decided to raise funds for the Society at Holy Family Parish.
Gabriel set up a “Go Fund Me” page with the goal of raising $1,000. Robert Mihovil, a local Galveston photographer, donated one of his original framed photos “Imagine a Romantic Island” as an incentive for donors to be entered into a drawing. The lucky winner was Ann Halligan.
The best part - Gabriel met his goal of $1,000! Beth Phillips, president of the Society chapter at Holy Family, presented Gabriel with a certificate of appreciation.
Thank you Gabe for all your hard work! Your fundraising efforts will not only make a difference in one life, but in multiple!
