St. Anthony’s Haiti Fundraiser

The Haitian Ministry of St. Anthony Parish, Morris, is sponsoring its eighth annual family fun night that includes a silent auction, a family dance and a free will soup and salad dinner Saturday, October 11, at the church’s Schad Hall from 5 to 11 PM. Every cent of the money raised will go toward helping the people of Gandou, Haiti, perhaps the poorest community of its size in the Western Hemisphere. Articles to be auctioned include a bit of everything, gift certificates, baskets, tickets to sporting events, artistic crafts, toys and much more. The best soup of the evening, as selected by popular vote, will receive a prize. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring a crock pot full of their favorite soup and join in the competition. Anyone wanting more information about the Gandou Ministry or the silent auction is welcome to attend its next general meeting in the basement of St. Anthony’s Schad Hall Wednesday, October 8, at 6:30 PM.
