Thank you for all your help and support for the Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser – according to the final count, this event netted $1848.65. We had a lot of fun in the effort.
The move of this event to Saturday night was a key in the success for this year. It is estimated that we spent about 160 man-hours of efforts. In addition to the income, we provided a large amount of food to three different organizations and a significant amount of bread to the religious education students who were studying the Eucharist. We were fortunate enough to share our table with St Edward’s Spanish community after the 6:30 Mass let out. We had a great time as they brought in some enchiladas and a birthday cake for a youngster.
A special thanks, goes out to Debby Galluppi who was very instrumental in getting a large amount of donations from local businesses – that effort directly increased the profit for this event. Another special thanks goes to the Youth ministry support lead by John Leirey. There efforts were extremely beneficial.
The Knights would like to thank all of those that attended and shared dinner with us. We would also like to thank these sponsors and community businesses for their donations to help make this event a success! These donations assisted us in contributing to many local charities. Thanks again to these vendors:
