Knights of Columbus Grand Reverse Raffle Dinner Event

 

Many Ss. Cyril & Methodius parishioners are aware of the works of charity performed by the Knights. We focus on supporting the homeless and intellectually disabled, helping in the vocations of the clergy and religious, and do all we can to promote the right to life for all people, particularly the unborn. Virtually all our activities are in support of these, the four pillars of our St. Nicholas Council.

 

On Saturday, June 23, we will launch our most ambitious charitable effort yet, with a special fundraising event featuring a Grand Reverse Raffle Dinner Event. What is a reverse raffle, you ask? As the name implies, it is a drawing that runs backwards. All tickets are drawn, but the LAST ticket drawn wins the grand prize. The lead up to the final drawing increases everyone’s excitement with each minute, especially with a grand prize of $10,000!

 

In addition to the raffle itself, there will be additional games and opportunities. Attendees can buy in to a 50/50 coverall BINGO based on the ticket numbers pulled. There will be giveaways, door prizes, and “Second Chance” certificates you can buy to allow your ticket, if drawn too early, to be placed back into the barrel for a second chance at the grand prize!

 

Each ticket is priced at $50 with a limit of only 500 tickets sold. Your ticket is also an invitation to the drawing party in the Fr. Mikus Hall, which includes a pasta dinner and drinks. One person admitted per ticket.

 

Anyone 18 years of age or older can buy a ticket and come to the event, and participants need not be present to win.

Again, the Reverse Raffle and Dinner Event is Saturday, June 23. Doors open at 4:00PM, Dinner is served at 5:00PM, and drawings will begin at 6:00PM. Dinner will be available even after the drawings begin. Tickets can be purchased from members of the Knights of Columbus or from the Parish office.

 

Support the Knights’ charitable efforts with a generous purchase of a raffle ticket or two. Who knows? You may go home

$10,000 richer. Good luck!

The Elephant in the Living Room! Hope for Addicts and their Families * Conference * July 13 & 14

All of our families suffer from a dis-ease, and yet we seldom discuss it in polite company. The Church tells us that, if we dwell on a dis-ordered thought, that thought will become a desire. If we hold onto that desire, we will act on it. Repeat this dis-ordered action, and it will become a sinful habit. No matter who we are, if we continue in a sinful habit, it becomes an addiction. At this point, we are powerless to stop without the intercession of others, and the direct action of God. Yet, it can get worse.

And some families have seen another progression. It demands rigorous honesty. It demands the acceptance of powerlessness and sincere repentance, confession and the help of God and others. We must reconnect with those who have passed through this same journey to the reckless love of God. This journey is not just for addicts, but also for those who love them.

If your family or someone you love is in the spiral heading for despair, come join us for our HOPE FOR ADDICTS AND THEIR FAMILIES Conference.
