“We were really humbled by it,” said Sitzmann about the selection announcement. “We’ve seen a lot of chair couples in the past, and we know we are in excellent company. It’s an honor to chair such a great event and cause.”

The Oct. 1 event is the single largest fundraiser for the 16 Catholic school systems in Northwest Iowa. Held at the Sioux City Convention Center, the annual Bishop’s Dinner includes a served meal, a guest speaker and an award presentation for educators and staff. This year’s keynote speaker for the dinner is Greg McDermott, head coach for Creighton University’s men’s basketball team.

“Everyone always enjoys the speeches made by the teachers, staff, and keynote,” said Sitzmann. “Their dedication and selflessness are very inspiring.” 

Gina and Jody Sitzmann have been married for 34 years, and each attended Catholic schools throughout their entire education. Their children, now grown, have done the same.

“We are excited to help recognize our outstanding teachers, staff, and administrators who work tirelessly each day providing quality education while creating an atmosphere for our children to learn the values of empathy, respect and gratitude — all within the context of our Catholic faith," the couple said in a news release.

SNB has been a proud sponsor of the Bishop's Dinner for several years.

“Security National Bank has always been great in supporting community events,” Gina said. “If you are looking to be a part of something, the bank always lets us know what’s going on with groups and community events in the area.” 

Tickets to the Bishop’s Dinner will be available for sale on Aug. 14. More information can be found at scdiocese.org or by calling the Diocese of Sioux City at 712-255-7524.
