DR Dinner and Auction
Thank You!
The 2019 DR Dinner and Auction was a great success! We raised $16,899 to add to the DR Scholarship fund. This is $1,336 more than we raised at last year's event. You are the best "Home Team" ever! The members of the "Go Team" and the children at the Episcopal school in El Pedregal thank you sincerely for your generosity. For an album of photographs from this event, click here.

We sent this information a few days ago to Padre Ramón Canela, the Dominican Episcopal priest and school administrator in El Pedregal, and he quickly sent back this message to all of you:  Dios bendiga el esfuerzo que ustedes hacen para mantener éste centro de estudios, Dios continúe dando prosperidad a toda la familia de la Iglesia de Cristo.  [God bless the effort you make to maintain this center of education. May God continue to give prosperity to the whole family of Christ Church.] Two of the teachers at this school also sent us messages of congratulation and gratitude.
