Thank you to all the volunteers and participants who turned out for our BINGO fundraiser tonight. You are all a key part of the Society of St Vincent de Paul being able to carry on its mission in providing for those in need. Our work begins with your generous support, and we thank you all for your part… and we hope you had a little fun in the process of supporting us!
As Monsignor Larry mentioned in the bulletin this week,
We invite you to participate in what I call a “Fun Raiser/ Fund Raiser” next Saturday night—good ole’ fashion Catholic BINGO. Please come and have fun, and help raise funds so that SVDP can continue to help those in need.
You can pre-register and purchase tickets by visting http://svdpfrisco.org/bingo
And while this is “good ole’ fashion Catholic BINGO” and not hard-core gambling, we will ask St. Bernardine of Siena, the patron saint of gamblers, to pray for a successful round of FUNd raising.
St. Vincent De Paul members volunteered to serve dinner to RCIA candidates and their sponsors in January.

• Donate to yourself first! Set an example, and then encourage everyone you know to also donate to you.
• The best way to get donations is by word of mouth! Start by asking your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, members of your clubs/organizations, etc.
• Communicate to all potential donors! Emails, phone calls, letters, Facebook messages, Twitter posts, etc., are all ways to reach potential donors.
• Set a high (but achievable) walk goal, and promise to do something special if it is achieved (kiss a pig, shave your head, walk backwards at the event, etc.).
• Remind potential donors that 100% of the funds you raised will stay local to help those living in need in your community.
• Briefly explain to potential donors the reasons why they should support the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
• Create a team online, and have a friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds within your team.
