Our first grand fund raising event, The Many Faces of Need – A Moonlight Masquerade was a great success! Thanks to the many it took to make it a wonderful evening, including every volunteer from St. John Berchmans, especially Donna Seal and her team from the Cathedral, to the remarkable Jan Pou whose fabulous décor and long hours of personal time and work made the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum into an exciting and beautiful venue, and to Dr. David Pou who assisted Jan with fabricating those beautiful centerpieces.
Most of all, to our sponsors without whom we could never have had this event! To our board president, Bess Elder who stuck by our sides through the entire process, to board member Nona Daily who assisted our executive director, Jean Dresley with the final silent auction process. To every single business and individual who donated the many exceptionally wonderful silent auction items, especially Jan Pou and Margaret Green, who went above and beyond. To the staff of Catholic Charities for volunteering and helping along the way.
Our heart-felt gratitude to one and all. We could never have accomplished such a delightful and successful event were it not for all of these folks. Space doesn’t allow us to name everyone because there were so many but we hope you know how important you are to us and that all that effort brought the end result we always look for, funding for the programs of Catholic Charities. Your hard work means that more people will receive the help they so badly need. From all of us at Catholic Charities of Shreveport, our most sincere thank you!
