Night of Fellowship and Fun!
On Saturday evening, October 3rd, we celebrated our
annual St. Benedict Monastery Benefit Dinner.
Over a month ago we started to make preparations and
sell tickets and by the day before the event, all
100 tickets were sold. Over 120 people came to
show their support for our community and spend an
evening enjoying good food, fun and
fellowship. The scrumptious meal was prepared
by Br. Marty Singer.
The main feature of the
evening was the reverse raffle during which all the
tickets were drawn to the remaining five
tickets. With the remaining entries still in
the game, those were drawn to select to the top five
prize winners. All the finalists won money
with the last ticket drawn being the grand prize of
Also part of the evening
were silent auctions for items ranging from
hand-made afghans to signed sports
memorabilia. However, the highlight of the
auction was a painting created by Br. Antony
The benefit was a
successful and enjoyable evening for all who
participated. We would like to say thank you
for the assistance we received from the Knights of
Columbus who also provided the facility for the
last week's news story, click here.
