Thanks St. Pius X High School

Huge thanks go out to  Jeff Turcotte, boy’s and girl’s cross country track coach, and members of the girl’s soccer team, for dropping off 35 turkeys for our food Drive!

Coach Turcotte and the St. Pius X students rallied together and in just 3 hours were able to raise enough funds and gather enough turkeys to make a HUGE difference to families in New Mexico!  We are grateful for their help this year and look forward to working with them in the future.

Art Night – Fundraiser

Join us for an fun evening of Art, Friends and Fundraising on January 21st starting at 6:30 at Designs by Wine!

EVERYONE can do this…no experience in art is required. The instructor gives detailed, step by step instructions and is available to answer any questions you may have. It’s a BLAST!

Tasty New Mexico wines will be available, as well as plenty of non-alcoholic beverages.

Cost is only $35 a person and proceeds will go towards our 2015 backpack project for New Mexico kids.

This activity is great for a group of friends, co-workers, families and date night. Basically, it’s for anyone that wants to have a great time with fun people!

Register early, as space is limited, and these classes often sell out.
