The annual SOS Benefit Dinner was a great success. Held at Union Station on Friday, January 25th, the activity benefits seminarians from our Archdiocese, the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph and Conception Seminary. Setup volunteers included eight members from our club. We were also well represented at the dinner. See the photos at the end of this article.
In addition to a delicious meal and fellowship, there were raffles, items for sale, and silent and live auctions. Organizers hoped to net about $150,000 from the event. Two years ago the dinner raised about $146,000. The proceeds are split equally among the two dioceses and the seminary.
