Dear Friends of Father Jim,

It has been 4 months since the Annual Beefsteak dinner… What???? Many of you are asking…..Beefsteak Dinner ???  What??? Did I miss it???    Oh wait: there was no Beefsteak this year and we cannot apologize enough. We know there are so many that look forward to reconnecting with old friends, share a great meal, enjoy a little raffle excitement and to support us as we continue Father Jim’s work. To be perfectly honest, despite not missing the hard work, the members truly missed seeing our old friends too. We especially missed our guests from Spring House and The Ladder Project.

            At our last board meeting we decided a spaghetti dinner in the fall would be a nice way to get our friends and supporters together. It is our honor and pleasure to invite you to our first Father Jim Memorial Fund Spaghetti Dinner. Your dinner will be prepared by our friends at Rudy’s and, while we will not be serving wine with the pasta, you are invited to bring your favorite bottle. While we are not raffling the gold (we will save that for next April’s Beefsteak), we will do our best to keep you entertained, including some familiar activities from the Beefsteak and cabaret style entertainment. No arm twisting for donations (maybe a little gentle encouragement, but no last minute scramble to sell the last few raffle tickets). The main focus is food, fun and fellowship. All for a low low price of $30:00/person

Save the Date cards were sent last month and in case you didn’t receive yours the date is…….
