St. Philip Neri - 500th Anniversary

Pocketbook Bingo Fundraiser

Our Second Pocketbook Bingo Fundraiser was a great night and a successful fundraiser for the Oratory. After expenses, we raised just over $8,100 to help defray the cost of Br. Fredy's seminary costs at Seton Hall. Thanks to all who donated money towards the purchase of bags or those who donated desserts. We especially appreciate Howie and Mary Ellen Firestone's help as our official Bingo callers and Mary Margett's help with ticket sales. There were many new people who came as well as many parishioners from St. Peter's.
