St. Alphonsus fall fundraiser raises money for 6 charities

Dec 05, 2017

St. Alphonsus held its 20th Fall Festival this past September. Keeping with tradition, area charities requesting money from the auction were awarded over $5,300. The six organizations selected by the Fall Festival committee were Family Connection, Help to Others (H2O), Henry County Food Resource Bank, Informed Choices and IA Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Research and Relay for Life (Cancer).

Additionally, a $5,300 contribution was given to a Christian Shelter in Vidor, Texas, suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Youth of the parish contributed an additional $1,200 to Hurricane relief from activities they sponsored during the Festival.

This was all made possible through the support of the parishioners, community and area businesses.
