Mark your calendars for Friday, September 13, 2019 for Saint Peter’s Kitchen’s 4th Annual Golf Tournament at Eagle Vale Golf Course in Fairport. Kellie Streff, our new development chair and the committee are working hard on planning an exciting day of golf, prizes, food and refreshments. The big announcement is that the golfer fee of $125 per player will remain the same.
There will be some fine-tuning of the sponsorship levels, but sponsor prices will also remain the same. Registration forms will be available on our website by mid-May.
Back-to-School Backpack Program
Every August, the school year begins for our community members with a flurry of activity at SPK. For many years, we have put on the Backpack Program- a school supply and book-bag giveaway for kids in the community going back to school.
This year, due in large part to the efforts and generosity of the , we were able to give out 126 backpacks with grade-appropriate supplies inside! Students face enough barriers to success at school without having to worry about having the basics for class, so we are grateful that through the persistent support of our funders and volunteers we were able to promote these students’ academic success.
