SUMMER IS HERE! BENFEST 2017 IS JUST 4 WEEKS AWAY…LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!

WAYS TO SUPPORT BENFEST 2017:

BECOME A BFF...BENFEST FRIEND
As part of the Parish’s new stewardship model, raffles, as a means of fundraising, will no longer be conducted at Parish & School events. In the past, the BenFest $10,000 raffle has been a significant source of income for the festival. It helps fund our ability to host a 3-day public festival on the streets around St. Bens. With the absence of a raffle, we are asking you to convert your raffle contribution to become a BenFest Friend. We have enhanced our sponsorship program to offer something for everyone. Please consider becoming a BenFest Friend, and support our parish and school.

CAN'T MAKE IT TO BENFEST? Please consider a $100 donation to commemorate BenFest’s celebration of our 100th Birthday! All 100th birthday donations will receive a commemorative travel coffee mug. *While supplies last. 


Another way YOU can help BenFest . . .

Hooligan is in need of bottom shelf prizes.  If you have any NEW items, or would like to purchase and donate items valued at $3/$4, they would be greatly appreciated, and would save BenFest the expense of BUYING prizes.  Some of the favorite prizes are ‘kid friendly’ squirt guns, any kind of play balls, sidewalk chalk, water bottles, jewelry, etc.  Please keep in mind that we cannot use candles as they melt in the sun, or USED items.  In conjunction with the 100th birthday of our church, and, If we get enough prizes, we’d like to lower the number required to win a prize.  Donations may be dropped off in the rectory, marked “HOOLIGAN”. Thank you in advance for any prizes you can provide!
