The Trinity Dads group has been painting, promoting and fundraising for four years now.

None of the dads knew each other prior to the initial fundraiser — Tigerfest Fun Fair. The auction and carnival was taking its toll on the parent volunteers, said Paul Beck.

So the dads, who are mostly professionals and have a broad network within the community, found they had something to offer, said Tony Shanley. And they invited the greater community to support the major event.

“We’re like ambassadors to the community,” Shanley said. “We go back and tell the school’s story.”
