Announcing the Winners of Our 2020 Virtual Golf Tournament Raffle

As many of you know, we could not hold our annual golf tournament this year because of COVID-19 restrictions, so we decided to hold a “Virtual Golf Tournament” on our scheduled date of September 11, 2020. Everyone that contributed was entered into a raffle of many great prizes. Virtual players received one raffle ticket for every $50 donated. The drawing was held September 11. The winning ticket numbers (many more than we thought we would have} are listed below.

We are pleased to report that St. Peter’s Kitchen raised a total of $7,075 from 36 donors. All the prizes were donated, to that’s all net proceeds. Mark your calendar now for 2021’s in-person tournament at Eagle Vale Country Club, to be held Friday, Sept. 10.

Congratulations Winners!

To ensure privacy of donors, we list only the prizes and winning ticket numbers. All certificates will be mailed directly to the winner. Larger gifts will be delivered by a Golf Committee Member. Please call 585-235-6511 for more information.

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.
