K of C ANNUAL GERMAN DINNER WILL BENEFIT AUGLAIZE CO. CRISIS CENTER

 

ST. MARYS (January 10, 2019) – The Father James O. Byrne Knights of Columbus Council 1592 in St. Marys has announced the Auglaize County Crisis Center will benefit from the organization’s annual German-style dinner. The dinner will be held Saturday, January 26 in the Holy Rosary Church basement, 511 E. Spring St. and is open to the public.

 

The meal will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Menu includes cabbage rolls, brats and kraut, pork roast, red cabbage, mashed potatoes, German potato salad, apple salad, dessert and beverage. Donation is $20 per individual with proceeds benefiting the local crisis center.

 

According to its website, the Auglaize County Crisis Center provides a network of safety for adult and child victims of domestic violence through 24-hour emergency crisis response, safety planning, shelter and case management. This agency is the only agency in Auglaize County providing shelter and case management and programming to survivors of family violence. These life altering programs assist adult and child survivors of domestic violence in strengthening their skills toward independence and self-direction.

 

“We believe this is an important cause to support in our community, “said Jerry Tebbe, grand knight of the local organization. “The work they do in our county is tremendous and deserves our charitable support. We believe the community will also support this activity to benefit the organization’s unsung work.”

 

Those planning on attending are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets are available at the Holy Rosary Church office or from Dave Helmstetter (394-1180) or Joe Kuebler (394-7179). Knights of Columbus members are also selling tickets following Sunday masses at Holy Rosary Church until the date of the benefit.  

 

A year ago, the K of C’s annual benefit supported the Family Life Center of Auglaize County and led to the purchase of a mobile ultrasound unit. The Knights of Columbus is a family, fraternal service organization with nearly 2 million members throughout the world. The local organization services Holy Rosary and St. Patrick parishes in St. Marys.
