Father Joe Szolack, Pastor of Infant Jesus Parish, and the St. Margaret’s Knights of Columbus Council hosted the Good Counsel Riverside Home Annual Dinner Dance and Basket Fundraiser on Saturday, March 28th in Woodbury Heights.
Food, beverages, and music began flowing at 6:00 sharp as our supporters started to arrive. Excitement was building while our guests perused the soon-to-be raffled gift baskets stuffed with home delights, theater tickets, gift certificates, sports packages, golf clubs, designer handbags, jewelry, a home computer – the list went on and on.
66 people were extra happy at the end of the night as the winners from throughout the evening collected their prizes. In addition to the gifts baskets, some lucky winners took home extra‑special prizes including $251 in cash from the 50/50 raffle, a 12-game Sunday ticket plan for 2 to the Philadelphia Phillies, and a 55‑inch big screen TV!
All of the proceeds from the evening will help the mothers and babies at the Riverside home as they continue on their path to independence. We are grateful to all those who helped to set up this event, cleaned up, sold tickets, collected donations for basket items, and took pictures. A sincere thank you to all who joined us for this wonderful and fun evening who laughed and danced with us.
