On May 2nd, the Auxiliary of the Little Sisters of the Poor held a Luncheon and Fashion Show at the Season’s venue. The fashions were provided by Noelle Brogan of Noel Brogan Productions. In addition, we had a 50/50 table, a Grand Prize table with a $1,000 cash prize, a flat screen TV, an original oil painting and a $250 basket from the Market Basket in Franklin Lakes. One of the favorites was our Basket Bonanza, with over 50 baskets. This wonderful event netted over $12,000 to add to our treasury!
Our fund-raising efforts for the 2011-2012 year totaled $36,000! A check was presented to Sr. Veronica at our closing, and our new officers were installed. We hope to reach our goal of $40,000 next year!
