Our Lady of the Wayside Adult Enrichment

THE NIGHT FOR THE BLUE & WHITE

Thank you for attending the 29th Annual Gala! We sincerely appreciate all of your donations and time volunteering! We could not have done this without all of you!

We raised a total net of over $200,000 which includes our Fund-a-Need that raised over $68,000! This is enough to complete our Multi-Purpose/Lunch Room! It is amazing how much support we received from extended family and friends for this special cause!
