O ur Lady of Hope Church will be holding their tenth annual theme basket party and raffle on Saturday, June 7, at Whitehall High School. The doors for the event will open at 11:00 a.m. and the drawing will begin at 1 p.m.
This year the church had over 100 prize baskets donated by an assortment of different people, ranging from families and friends to people not even from Whitehall.
Jean Vladyka and Joan LaCroix, the two church members who spearhead this event explained that this year’s baskets include, kid’s baskets, maple baskets, bathroom supplies, kitchen supplies, afghan blankets, tool sets and a litany of other baskets.
The funds that are raised by this event annually go to help out around the church in many different ways.
“It supports the church, we don’t designate it to something specific,” Vladyka said, “It changes based on what we need.”
In terms of big prizes, there will be a gas grill for the first place winner, a solar light for the second prize and a lamp for third place.
Admission tickets for this year’s raffle will be $5 and each extra ticket will cost $2. There will also be a 50/50 raffle at this year’s event.
