The net income from the fundraiser hit $30,000, which exceeded the goal for the event by 75 percent. This means in addition to purchasing an ultrasound machine for Cornerstone Women's Center, the councils will have additional financial resources to contribute to pro-life organizations. Since Cornerstone is a new center that is just getting started, we are not yet able to commit the funds for the purchase of the ultrasound machine until facilities and medical personnel are in place and other milestones have been met—but thanks to strong community support, the money is in place.
Special thanks go to our special guests Fr. Michael Becker and Mary Ann Kuharski; the KC Male Chorus; Dave Ferry, who served as our master of ceremonies; Michelle LeMonds (Michelle LeMonds Photography) for taking pictures the night of the event (including those you see here); Katie Joslyn, who designed our event flyer; the many donors of items for our silent auction; the many volunteers who helped to make the event so successful; and most importantly, the generous people who attended and/or gave money to support this cause. We would also like to recognize our Brother Knights in the Annandale, Anoka, Clearwater, Coon Rapids, Dayton, Delano, Maple Lake/ Buffalo, Monticello, Rogers, St. Bonifacius and Waverly councils for their support.
