• Dedicated, faith-filled volunteers who procure the door prizes and share their gifts of time, talent and treasure with
joy for the benefit of their parish.
• Corporate Sponsors, Major Prize Sponsors and Door Prize Sponsors.
• Supportive parishioners who purchase raffle tickets and spread the word about the event in the community.
• And Guests who attend the event-Make a mental note to make next year’s Card Party a “Must Attend” on your
   social calendar!
“What an AMAZING evening! My heartfelt thanks to each and every volunteer who demonstrated TEAM SPIRIT in
working together to make this event a huge success! I am delighted to report that this year’s event, with the support from Corporate Sponsors, generated a record $_______ in revenue! This revenue supports ALL ministries within St. Mary of the Knobs parish and will be used to offset a portion of operating expenses. I look forward to seeing each and every one of you at next year’s Card Party!”
Many thanks!
