Paired with the annual Famous Friday Fish Fry at Holy Angels each year, the Gifts From the Heart Raffle was an opportunity to win one (or several) of hundreds of donated prizes. Donated items in this year’s raffle were truly “Gifts From the Heart” with the financial support gained from the combined event directly supporting Holy Angels School.
In 2016, the 27th annual Gifts From the Heart Raffle had the crowd ooohing and aaahing over the many entries. Click here for the listing of Raffle winners.
Silent Auction Event – 2016
The special Silent Auction Event during the Gifts From the Heart Raffle included gift baskets prepared by each of the grade levels and some special “large ticket items.” The top bidder for each item was announced during the evening. Click here for a listing of highest bidders.
The 2016 Famous Friday Fish Fry again offered a venue with terrific fried (all you can eat) and baked (adult portion) fish. The entire Walnut Room and Cedar Room complex provided ample seating for a family style fish fry. The homemade dessert selection was better than ever! The new venue provided a more leisurely dining experience before diners moved on to the excitement of the Gifts from the Heart Raffle. The revamped Carry-Out line provided for faster service. Over 1200 were served!
