  • Those who helped to prepare the Big Ticket mailing by labelling, stamping, folding and stuffing envelopes.
  • Those individuals and organizations who donated Big Ticket prizes.
  • Everyone who bought and sold raffle tickets… we sold a record number of raffle tickets this year!
  • Charlie Sticha for providing a polka cd to play before the drawing.
  • Everyone who donated financially to our “No-Go” Down fundraiser.


The “No-Go Down” raised about $25,000 from ticket sales and donations – thank you to everyone who contributed! This is a generous sum of money considering we had to cancel our event. If you haven’t yet, please donate to our “No-Go Down” fundraiser. Funds raised from successful Ho-Downs have allowed us to pay bills, fund much needed improvements on our parish grounds, and give extra to our parish school for required maintenance needs.
Mail a donation to the office or donate at Donations will be accepted through the end of the month. Thank you!


We will see you NEXT YEAR in 2021 for our 54th Annual Ho-Down!
Na Shledanou Ve Veseli!
