GOOD THINGS TO KNOW NOW!
The Fruits of the Harvest (FOTH), our silent, and not so silent, auction and themed dinner party has grown into St. Timothy's largest fund-raising event over the last 16 years. Almost $411,000 has been donated to benefit over 22 beneficiaries. FOTH is a parish-wide event which involves large numbers of volunteers who have a great time working together to do the work He has given us to do.
We need you all on the team to raise funds for Outreach ministries. Instead of 3 beneficiaries at FOTH, we are now going to benefit all 14 of the ministries that we are actively supporting. The net proceeds from FOTH will be added to our budgeted yearly Outreach allocation of $25,000 (which does not stretch far with 14 ministries) so that we can make a difference in the lives of these beneficiaries.
Your donations are what make this night a success. Help our silent auction by soliciting or donating gift certificates from restaurants. Dinners hosted by parishioners, game tickets, special outings, and entertainment certificates are welcome. Talk to us if you need ideas.
