CHARITIES APPEAL – 2011-2012 – FINAL REPORT
Brother Paul Liber mans the ticket booth at Bonnie Doon Mall during the hugely successful Charities Appeal campaign.
We are pleased to confirm the total ticket sales for Father Bonner Council were $19,614. This places our council as the Top Council for all of Alberta-NWT.
CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who was involved including
those who bought tickets or sold tickets. We extend our hearty appreciation to four key members of
our council. Firstly to Grand Knight Al
Girard who did a great job while the writer was globetrotting. Secondly, to Arnold Lorenz who organized the schedules
for the malls and to Paul Liber and Ken Shivak for being the Bankers for the
four weeks we were in the malls.
A special thank-you to Koch Ford Lincoln for providing
the attractive red Lincoln that caught the attention of many ticket purchasers.
This success could only be achieved with a strong TEAM
effort. Our efforts generated funds for
our State Council, the Alberta Charitable Foundation and for the charities
designated by our council.
Next year we will strive for an even greater participation
by all council members – “many hands make the job easier”.
Fraternally Grateful to the Brother Knights of Father
Charities Appeal Chairman Council #7599
I've just received a phone call from Charities Appeal Chairman, Brother Paul Froment. He told me that he's been working on the final results and has discovered that he had not credited us with all of our sales. The adjustments have been made, with the result that we set a new single-council record this year. Our total sales were $20,554.
We sold two of the $1,000 winning tickets, and we beat the
second-place selling council by $4710.00.
I'm extremely proud of our team effort. We set the benchmark for future years. Out council will be the standard to which all other councils try to follow.
Thanks once again to Chairman Wally Streit, and to team leaders Arnold Lorenz, Paul Liber
and Ken Shivak as well as everyone who either sold or bought tickets.
Al Girard, Grand Knight
