Join Us for Joseph Bowls Supper Next Thursday
We look forward to welcoming you to St. Joseph Center one week from today for our seventh annual Joseph Bowls Supper fundraiser! When our friends, family, and other supporters join us on Thursday, March 14, they’ll be helping us provide food for families and individuals who face hunger every day.
A $25-per-person donation is suggested, but any amount makes a life-changing impact. To date, we have raised more than $50,000 to help fill empty bowls and empower those who are hungry!
Our guests enjoy a delicious, all-you-can-eat supper of soup, bread, dessert, and beverage. They’ll also take home a one-of-a-kind painted bowl, lovingly made by our sisters and our many friends and partners.
Proceeds will benefit Casa Alexia, our food program on the El Paso-Juárez border, and Sisters Program South, which provides a public health-based approach to help Milwaukee women who are victimized by sex trafficking and prostitution. The U.S. Province is a founding member of the Sisters Program South initiative.
We are encouraging our guests to join us for Mass at 4:00 p.m. in St. Joseph Chapel. The blessing of the bowls will immediately follow the Eucharist. Supper will be served from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Mark your calendars—we look forward to seeing you next Thursday! Friends outside the Milwaukee area can contribute by credit card on our website’s “Donate” page, selecting “Hunger Fund” from the drop-down menu.
For more information, please contact Catherine Alexander, Special Appeals Administrator, at 414-385-5343 or email email@example.com.
