St Anthony Parish has had a spring fundraiser of some sort for many years. Unlike the Quilt Bingo in the fall that has a long standing tradition, the spring event has changed from time to time.
The current event was started by members of the pastoral council in the spring of 2013, and plans are being made for its third kickoff in 2015. Named “Spring Fling,” it is held on a Sunday evening. It consists of a raffle, a silent auction and dinner. Live performers have also added to the evenings’ fun!
The organizing committee’s goal is to create a social event for our parishioners, families, friends, and the surrounding community while attaining a financial goal to help support the many needs of our parish.
