Unfortunately, the Dinner Dance must be indefinitely postponed - Banquets are impossible for the near future. We’re sad to miss our dinner/dance this year, but it's just not possible during these trying times. We were planning to recognize Cheryl Calire (along with a few others) this year. Cheryl is the Director of Pro-Life Ministry for Diocese. She runs the St. Mother Teresa Home in Buffalo, directs the St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Outreach, is available 24/7 for women/families in need, and been a tremendous supporter of our Parish Pro-Life activities for years. In lieu of banquet at this time, our 200 Club is donating $500 in Cheryl’s name for the Home and Outreach. They especially need help these days and are very appreciative of our donation. Thank you to all!
