Ladies of Charity holds social events for our members and their guests to have the opportunity to support our programs, meet others and have fun.

BUFFALO LADIES OF CHARITY GIFT CARD RAFFLE A BIG SUCESS!

Our first Gift Card Raffle was held on April 14th and it was a big success! We raised well over $4,000 to support Ladies of Charity ministries and had a great time in the process.

The primary goal of the gift card raffle was to create a new fundraising event to take the place of the “Bellringer” event historically held in the spring of each year.  The idea was presented to the board by Kathy Dolan and a fundraising committee backed the idea because it was something we could act on fairly quickly, with low overhead.

In addition to the work completed by our Catholic Charities support staff and director, Eileen Nowak, volunteers included the St. Mary’s Junior Ladies of Charity, LOC members, LOC board members and president, Kathleen Sieracki.

Raffle tickets offered chances to win gift cards and certificates donated by members and local businesses.  There were 36 winners of gift cards and certificates worth $25 or more and 5 winners who won $50 or more. Additionally, there were more than 80 gift baskets raffled and a split club.  Feedback has been very positive and will be discussed and considered for future fund raising events. Thank you to all who donated their time and/or treasure to the event!
