As you know we will be hosting our annual Beer Pairing Dinner on April 11th at Our Lady of Fatima for the benefit of the Knights statewide ultra sound program. Due to the success of last year’s event and the demand generated thus far, we have significantly expanded the event. Based on the anticipated number of attendees, our venue has had to be moved from the parish center to the school gymnasium. With the increase in the number of attendees, the need for participation and support by the council members is even more critical and I would ask each of you to consider lending your time and talents to the effort in guaranteeing the event’s success.
No offer of support is too small and there are many ways in which you can support the event. Brother Brent Schuller is coordinating the volunteers for the 2015 event and he has many opportunities available across a number of positions where we could use your help. To that end, I would ask each of you to personally reach out to Brent and offer your support and assistance in whatever way you can.
We will again be selling tickets after all the masses for the Beer Pairing Dinner this weekend and we are looking for volunteers to man the ticket table. The weather should be much more mild than this past weekend, so we have that going for us.
As you will see in the flyer insert in the bulletin for the event, we have expanded the event now to accommodate up to 200 folks. We sold 80 tickets in our first weekend and counting this coming weekend, we have four weekends left before we cease ticket sales at the end of March. Please reach out to friends and family to attend this wonderful charity event to make it a huge success.
My thanks in advance for all you do to make Council 9597 such a meaningful part of our parish community and for your support of this very important event in support of the church’s pro-life ministry.
Also please let me know if you will be able to assist with manning the ticket sales this weekend as well.
