St. Augustine’s Hunger Center Fund Raiser

On November8th, we had a successful fund raiser for St. Augustine’s Hunger Center at the club. Mary’s Lane played to the enjoyment of everyone. When all the donations were counted we were able to give Father Joe McNulty and Sister Corita $3,500.00 for Thanksgiving. St. Augustine’s served over 17,000 meals throughout our five counties on Thanksgiving Day.  We hope to make this an annual event.

Congratulations to our Honorees!
