We asked for your help and you “sprung” into action by supporting our annual roast beef dinner on October 20. Through the efforts of our staff and many volunteers, we served 800 dinners that day and raised approximately $26,000! We are so grateful to God and to all of you for this bountiful blessing! With these gifts, we were able to purchase new beds and mattresses for our Residents. The new mattresses really are quite comfortable and provide our Residents with restful nights of sleep which helps make their days brighter. If that brings a smile to your face it should because your continuous support is a big part of those brighter days!
There are so many people whom we are grateful to for helping us make this event such a success. We are especially indebted to Cathy Gavin and her staff from Stirna’s Restaurant for providing the delicious roast beef dinner to our patrons and to the National Bakery for the fresh dinner rolls. We would also like to thank Lamar Advertising for providing us with electronic billboards, WNEP-TV for the “In Your Neighborhood” commercial, and The Times-Tribune for promoting our event. We are also thankful to all of our dinner sponsors, benefactors, prize and baked good donors for their very generous support as well as the First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association for their $600 matching grant for our baked goods stand. Last but certainly not least, we would like to thank our committee members and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this event our best dinner yet. Each of you truly embody and personify the family spirit of what make Holy Family Residence a home: Aileen Alunni, Lisa Blaker, Borthwick and Galvin families, Charlie Butler, Karen Caruso, Judy Cosgrove, Cathy DelPrete, Mary Densevich, Dylan Devine, Theresa Durkin, Faith Foley, Holy Cross High School students, Mary Kane, Pete and MaryCarol Kanton, Ann Kwak, Mary Ann Langan, Nevin Langan, Alice Micone, Carole Paswinski, Janet Skibinski, Cathy Skrutski, Kim Simchak, Sr. Gilmary Speirs, I.H.M., Joyce Tressler, and Karen and Howie Wyandt.
