The drawing for the SVdP Raffle was held on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at 10:00 am at Bales Hall at St. Mary Parish in Sterling, IL. This fundraising event is held annually from May through the middle of July, to raise funds to support the SVdP food pantry and financial aid programs for those in need in the Sterling-Rock Falls Area and all Whiteside County, which SVdP Society has been serving for over 60 years. The Mayor of Sterling, “Skip” Lee, drew the winning ticket as a SVdP volunteer looked on. (photo below). The winning ticket was purchased by Mike Terveer of Rock Falls and a check for $1960.00 was presented to Mr. Terveer by the SVdP Treasurer Dawn Naffziger.
St. Vincent de Paul Society would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone who participated in the raffle and supported our fundraising event in other ways. We appreciate your support so very much. Our deepest thanks also go out to our volunteers for their dedicated efforts in making this event possible. God bless you all!
