Weekend Recap
Christmas Gift Baskets and Coats for Kids

Our scaled back Christmas Basket Program was successful! THANKS to everyone who adopted a family and helped buy, wrap, sort and deliver gifts last week. Special thanks to PGK Dennis Lundbom and Lady Laura McQuoid for spearheading the effort.

In addition to the gift baskets, our Coats for Kids program provided coats for 90 kids just in time for their Christmas breaks from school and the colder winter weather coming up.

The program was scaled back the joy and holiday spirit we brought to the families was certainly not.

To those who were asking why we selected fewer families this year instead of the 100+ we did the past few years, it is because we did the program on our own this year and did not partner with the Catholic Community of Pleasanton.

Upcoming Events
NYE Party at the VA Hospital
As in year's past, we will partner with other councils to throw an early NYE party for the veteran's at the VA Hospital. There will be food and music for an early celebration that easily gets you home to ring in the New Year with your own family.

The event will go from 2:00pm to 6:30pm.

Free Throw Competition -- CANCELLED!
The Free Throw and Three Point Shooting Competition, initially scheduled for January 11, 2020, is cancelled.

2020 Crab Feed
Tickets are now on sale for our 2020 Crab Feed fundraiser. This is one of our two big events that supports our charitable activities and we need great items to raise funds. 

If you have sporting event tickets (sports, performances), condos, timeshares, art, jewelry, services, please consider making a donation to the council and we will use it to raise funds during the auction.
