Thank you from the McCutcheon Team

Our 15th Annual John McCutcheon Concert on Monday, Jan 21, 2019, was another
great success. We had a large crowd of over 240, with more than 64% non-
parishioners. John McCutcheon gave us another very entertaining evening. Ticket
sales totaled over $6500. The prize drawing, with 20 prizes donated by 17
generous parishioners, generated a record $966. The cookies from the snack bar
were delicious and brought in an additional $247. Not all the expenses are in, but
we estimate that the expenses to be around $4600. Part of the proceeds from
this concert will go to support ABODE services to fight homelessness.

This fundraising and community outreach event could not have happened without
all your help. There were more than 50 people who contributed time, talent and
