The annual fall fundraiser for the Saint Kizito Foundation took place a few weeks ago on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
The event started with mass celebrated by Father Donald Dunson at Saint Ladislas Church in Westlake. A fun filled dinner event took place immediately following mass in Cullen Hall at Saint Ladislas.
The hall was filled with great music and lively conversation while attendees scoped out silent and Chinese auction items and browsed and purchased beautiful African bead work. Many opted to memorialize the evening by taking a photo booth picture.
The evening culminated with a live auction where only two things were auctioned off. The first item offered all an opportunity to support an African student or students for a school year – at a tuition cost was $348.00 per student. Thirty-nine tuitions were “sold”. The second auction item was the ever popular dinner with Father Dunson at his home at a mutually agreeable date to be determined. As in the past we had not just one – but two winners!
The evening was a resounding success with over $30,000.00 being raised! The attendees enjoyed a wonderful evening of fellowship, food, as well as the opportunity to learn more about the Saint Kizito Foundation and its’ mission.
