Blue & White Ends

Aug 29, 2015

On Sunday, August 30,  2015, the parish held its final Blue & White drawing, directly following the 10 o’clock Mass.  The Blue & White was a 50/50 cash drawing with numbers selling at $10.00.  Half the proceeds were given to the parish; the other half divided in 3 increments to the winners.  In its heyday, the Blue & White raised $1,000.00 a month for our parish and divided another $1K among 3 winners.  For many years Ed Napekoski and his late wife Mary, and more recently Ed and his wife Janet have run the Blue & White.  To them our parish owes a debt of gratitude.  As parishioners have lost interest in this kind of fund-raiser, along with the many other ways people can speculate with their cash, Blue & White ends its long and lucrative history in our parish.  Thank you to all who participated!

In a surprising ending, one parishioner purchased the first and last numbers (#1 and #200, respectively) in the final drawing.  BOTH NUMBERS WON!
