Charity Our First Principle

Our Council has had a number of successful fundraisers during the 2015-2016 fraternal year.  We kicked off our fundraising with a gun raffle in the fall chaired by Brother Ed Styduhar.  This years raffle featured an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle as the grand prize which helped us raise $5,200.00.  Later in 2015 our Council constructed and sold outdoor manger scenes at St. Thomas Aquinas.  Sales were brisk, and we netted $5,800.00 for our charity account.  This project was ably led by Past Grand Knight David Gerling, and with the help of many of our brother knights we made and sold 68 manger scenes.  We followed manger scenes with our ever popular Chili Sale on Super Bowl Sunday which netted another $3,322.00 thanks to the leadership of Gary Richardson and Leonard Muesse.  Our traditional Lenten Fish Dinners that we serve every Friday in Lent had only 4 Fridays this year because of Spring Break.  We still managed to clear $1,216.00 in profits this year.  Finally our 6th Annual Wine & Cheese Tasting held on April 16, raised $2,738.00.  In total our Council has raised $18,276.00 to spend on our various charity projects this fraternal year.
