Lodge 340 December News
Charity Table Fundraiser
GCU Lodge 340 held its annual Charity Table Fundraiser on October 3, 2018. Each year the event is held in conjunction with the St. Thomas Altar Rosary Society Tricky Tray Auction parish fundraiser.
This year’s fundraising efforts benefited the Franciscan Charities of Newark, NJ. The organization’s mission is to tend to the critical needs of the poor, provide tools to rise above poverty and support physical, emotional and spiritual healing. The lodge’s prizes included a $250.00 bank gift card and a beautiful Coach handbag.
The evening was filled with excitement and anticipation hoping to win one of the many beautiful prizes displayed and was well supported by parishioners and the community.
Bingo Outreach Event
Members of GCU Lodge 340 visited Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Toms River, NJ in an effort to help raise funds for the church through the GCU Parish Expansion Matching Funds Program.
Lodge members joined in with church members during their weekly Bingo on Monday, November 5 and Wednesday, November 7, 2018. Everyone worked together selling boards and working in the kitchen.
Lodge 340 members also set up a giveaway table. The giveaways and GCU info brochures were supplied by the Home Office. It was nice to meet new people and work together. Fr. Frank Rella is the Pastor at Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
