During the weekend of the Souper Bowl, the St. Anne Youth Ministry held a fundraiser in order to support St. Anthony's Foundation in San Francisco.
Despite the complications of fewer people attending the masses, the Youth Ministry group was able to raise almost the same amount as the previous year. Last year, the group fundraised $2,729.00, but this year the group raised $2,728.00. Some of the group members were slightly disappointed since they were only one dollar off from the year before. The Youth Ministry group had hoped to raise more money, but they are glad they still met their quota.
Another complication may have been due to the economic status of the world. More people might become reluctant to donate because of the value of money these days. Times are becoming harder for all.
St. Anne's Youth Ministry would like to thank all who have donated and supported their cause. Look out for this fundraiser next year and help those who are in need of help through your donations.
