The Ladies Auxiliary and Respect Life Committee were in charge of the Silent Auction/Raffle for the Pink and Blue Banquet for the McGivney Center of Hope and Healing. The annual fundraising banquet was held in August at the Belvedere, 1170 W. Devon Ave Elk Grove Village. Preparation for the auction began months in advance, as donations were obtained and baskets created by the ladies. Fifteen Ladies were on hand for the event, several Knights were also in attendance, and both groups had ads in the dinner program booklet to help support this worthy cause.

Father Michael J. McGivney Center of Hope and Healing is a 501c3 corporation which provides Grants to Homes in Illinois that empower women who choose LIFE.  The Homes they support are an extension of the work of Pregnancy Assistance Centers. Each woman is treated on an individual basis. Recognizing the talents of the human person, programs are designed to help each person to use their talents to achieve eventual self‐sufficiency to help themselves and their child. Residents are eighteen years of age or older, usually referred by one of the more than 300 Pregnancy Assistance Centers in the State of Illinois and of various racial/ethnic backgrounds.

Requests for funds to support this mission were over $250,000.  Last year they were able to award grants to five Homes for a total amount of $75,000.     As you can see they fell far short of what is needed to help these homes provide help to Women and Babies.

Brother Knights, Please Join in Remembering 9/11 on this Patriot Day 2016

The Fourth Degree is the highest degree of the order. It is an extension of the third degree. Members of this degree are addressed as “Sir Knight”. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism and to encourage active Catholic citizenship.

May God hold all the fallen in his hand, along with those that rushed to their aid on September 11, 2001. May He comfort those that remained behind to honor all the heroes and victims of that tragic day. Today 15 years later, we continue to remember – let us never forget how precious the gift of life is and how quickly we can be called home.

2016 Intellectual Disabilities Drive

News Comments Off on 2016 Intellectual Disabilities Drive

Tootsie RollThe Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities

The Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities, also previously known as the Tootsie Roll Drive, is probably the Knights of Columbus’ best-known national fund-raiser. Unlike fundraising done by other organizations, 100% of the money raised through the Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities goes to help people with intellectual disabilities. The Knights do not use a hard sell approach to collect money; they merely stand (or sit) near the entrance to businesses wearing a red and yellow apron designating them as a K of C fundraiser. Most people know about the annual drive and the great work of the Knights of Columbus, and will donate without any solicitation. In return they receive a “thank you” from the Knight and an offer of a Tootsie Roll to those who donate.
