Fr. Jim McKenna Memorial Fund: Annual Reverse Raffle and Beefsteak Dinner
Dear Friends of Father Jim:
We would like to invite you once again to participate in the Fr. Jim McKenna Memorial Fund: Annual Reverse Raffle and Beefsteak Dinner to be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 7 PM in St. Mary's Parish Hall located at 300 High Street in Closter, New Jersey. The grand prize for the Reverse Raffle will be $5,000 in gold with additional cash and prizes throughout the evening.
It's hard to believe that almost seven years have gone since the passing of our beloved Fr. Jim; our friend and our spiritual leader who was always compassionate toward anyone struggling with the disease of addiction and the hardships that inevitably follows the addict and those who love them. It was Fr. Jim who encouraged the Fund to be created and it is our task to continue to celebrate his legacy by raising money so that we may follow his path.
