FUND-A-NEED

SUPPORT THE FESTIVAL. SUPPORT OUR PARISH.

This year, our festival fund-a-need will sponsor two items that are necessary for the Festival. They are:

  • A new tent to replace the one we have traditionally rented. The cost of the tent is $1600; once funded, this initiative will pay for itself, as rental costs are close to this figure. 

  • Three gas fryers used for our famous french-fries. The cost for three fryers is $1800. The parish spends about $500 a year to rent fryers for the Festival and Lenten Fish fry, so this initiative will pay for itself in short order. 

Please consider contributing to our Fund-A-Need goal. Your support helps ensure the next 20 years of Festival Fun! Drop off donations at the Parish Center, or give electronically using the link below.
