Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Thanks to all of you for your efforts in making the 14th Annual Shamrock Shave (held last March 11th) a successful fundraising event for our parish community and those in need.
Thanks to your efforts, we collectively raised over $15,000 for the needy in our community (St. Vincent DePaul Society). We also had 12 adult and children Shavees, an estimated 250 adults and children in attendance throughout the evening, and served over 250 Irish and Chicken Tender dinners! The Mayer School of Dance gave a wonderful performance (their first time back in three years), and it is great to see our parish pull together and answer the call.
To see members of the Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul Society, and other parishioners volunteer to make the event happen has blessed our Parish Family in so many ways. Thanks to your commitment to the event, we exceeded our goal and had a lot of fun raising money for a very worthwhile cause… more than $15,000!
To All the Shavees: Your commitment to the parish community and helping those in need is inspirational… may your bald heads be examples to those in the parish and community of our parish’s commitment to charity!
