Formerly the president of Security National Automotive Acceptance Corp, Becky Catino now spends her time focusing on charitable activities and commitments. In addition to her position as chair of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati, Ohio, Becky Catino serves on the Ursuline Academy Alumni Foundation’s board of trustees.
The Ursuline Academy Alumni Foundation (UAAF) works to raise funds and serve the needs of the 150-year-old girls preparatory school in Springfield, Illinois. Members help to uphold the school’s traditions of quality Catholic education and learning through service with a variety of projects and events.
The Foundation recently held its 43rd Annual Chicken Dinner, thanks to partnerships with the Ursuline Academy Alumni Foundation and the local Knights of Columbus Council. Each year this entertaining event raises funds for the UAAF Scholarship Fund.
Volunteers prepare meals, set up the facilities, and ensure that everything runs smoothly. Attendees buy tickets, and then enjoy a big chicken dinner with coleslaw and all the trimmings. Generous participants can also choose to donate chicken dinners to residents of nearby Brother James Court, a care facility that houses men who are developmentally disabled.
