Spring Fundraiser
Friday, May 12
The date for this year's fundraiser to support our parish and nursery school will be held on Friday, May 12th  at Roxiticus Golf & Country Club.  The evening will include wonderful cocktails, appetizers, a lively silent auction and wine pull.  Did you receive an invitation to this fabulous event? If not, we would love to have you join us! Please email  Shellie Iossa for an invitation or more info.

Wine Needed
Action item! We need your help with donations for the wine pull raffle. 
Each "pull" will cost $20 or 3 for $50 and that will give guests the opportunity to pull a cork that will win a bottle (or bottles) of wine valued at $25 and up. 
If you find yourself at your favorite beverage store within the next few weeks, please consider picking up a bottle or two of wine (price range $25 and up please) to donate to the event. Or, maybe you already have a nice wine cellar that's aging rapidly or just collecting dust. We'll help you find a good home for a few bottles and we'll even dust them off for you! 
Please bring wine with you to coffee hour and leave it in the kitchen. Important: make sure to notate the value of the wine along with your name . We'll make sure one of our volunteers knows it is for the event and not for our post-church enjoyment! If you are unable to attend coffee hour, you may leave it during business hours in the parish office or drop by the house of Shellie Iossa at 108 Crest Drive, Bernardsville.
