Raffle tickets are selling like hotcakes! You can turn in your raffle tickets in the gathering space as well as pick up a supply of extra tickets. You can also mail them in or drop them off at the parish office. The first Early Bird winner of $100 is John Hoff. Congratulations, John! 

It’s not too late to become a festival sponsor. Thus far, we have received over $30,000 in sponsorship commitment as the list continues to grow. We are very grateful for their support that will make this event more presentable and contribute to its financial success. The list and level of sponsorship is at right.

The entertainment for the festival is in place, along with a new entertainment stage that will be assembled by Wanner Metalworx. The one and only Tom Cash will head off Friday evening at 7pm, followed by Danny and the Linders, who won’t fink out on us as playing keyboard is Mike Finks, formerly of a popular group, ‘Hot Pursuit’. On Saturday evening ‘These Guys Live’ will enliven us as the main event. 

You can’t have a good festival without good food. There will be several food trucks that include Schmidt’s, Mi Tradicion, and Skyward Grille; plus Iacobucci’s Wood Fired Pizza, Three Brothers Diner, Donato’s Pizza, and our K of C offering a value meal. 

Next weekend you can beat the line at the festival by purchasing vouchers for the festival rides and kid games. You will be able to do so in the gathering space. 

Lastly, Silent Auction items are arriving, and packages are being assembled, along with some individual goods that will be offered separately. It’s not too late to donate. Diane Walker is the Silent Auction Queen, and she can be reached at 614. 271.7555 or walker199@ameritech.net. 

The festival will be held on Friday, August 20, and Saturday, August 21, from 6 pm to midnight. Come one, and come all!
