DHS Associate Raffle 2015


Several years ago the growing number of Associates on the East Coast of the USA needed to find some creative source of funding that would allow them to carry out their association activities without causing a financial burden for their membership, many of whom are retired and on a fixed income. Thus, then directress of the group Mary MacDonald, spawned the idea of holding an annual raffle that would call for the participation of all Associates and result in netting a modest, yet beneficial income for the functioning of the Associate program.

Over the years the raffle revenue has supported the group’s annual assembly and retreat, its membership in NACAR, the national association, sessions for candidate formation and various other activities.

This year’s drawing and picnic were held at the Holy Spirit Provincial House Pavilion on the weather-perfect afternoon of July 25th. The gathering proved to be a lovely time for all the attendees and a profitable time for the winners who were:

  • 1st prize $200………………………….Kathy Collett of Putnam
  • 2nd prize $150…………………………Irene Kostzewski Associate from Stratford
  • 3rd prize $  50…………………………Sr. Catherine Sottak, DHS of Putnam
  • 4th prize $  50…………………………Lucille Alubowicz of Lisbon
  • 5th prize $  50…………………………Beverly Spink Associate from Brooklyn
  • 6th prize $  50…………………………Belle Henzel, Associate Candidate

The Associate Group netted $1850 and we thank the many kind folks who purchased raffle tickets or contributed some of the gifts as well as all who supported our efforts in any way whatsoever. May the Spirit of kindness and collaboration fill your hearts and lives forever.
