GREEK FEST UPDATES

Congratulations to our first Early Bird Drawing winners, they are: Deena Lawley Dixon ticket #522 and Peter Kouros ticket #1122. If you haven’t turned in your tickets and money, do so soon. The next drawing will be Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17th.

OUR CATHEDRAL GREEK FEST will be held on the weekend of July 13th-15th. Preparations are underway for a great weekend.

Once again, we will be seeking donations for bakery, dairy, meat, seafood, produce and other various items. We especially need donors for the 400 lambs that we need for this year’s Festival. If you can donate a lamb or two ($100-whole, $60-half) or be of assistance in donating towards the other items, please see Fr. Ted, John Petalas Parish Council President or by contacting the church office. Your assistance will help ensure a successful festival. Our goal for this year’s festival is to raise at least $100,000 profit. We can do it if everyone pitches in.

Raffle tickets have been mailed out to all members of our Cathedral. If you have not received your raffle tickets or need more, contact the church office. It may seem a little early, but the Festival Committee wants to have a successful year in raffle sales. This year we will be giving out $20,000 in prizes. Tickets are still only $25 each. This year there are six “Early Bird” drawings. The next drawing will be on Sunday, June 17th – Father’s Day and the third on Sunday, July 1st. We urge everyone to make every effort to sell your tickets. It is through the raffle that the Festival makes most of its money. Remember, you could win $500 in June and July and $10,000 as well!

Anyone interested in working the two outside bars at this year’s Grecian Festival please stop by the church office and pick up an application no later than June 4th.
