To the editor:
St. Raphael's by the Sea Winter Rummage Sale held at the Beach Theater on Jan. 20 and 21 exceeded last year's success - breaking all expectations!
Special thanks to all who contributed in supporting the ministry of St. Raphael's by the Sea through this successful fundraiser. There are so many to thank; beginning with the St. Raphael's by the Sea team headed up by Cris Zack, to the generous donors that donated top drawer items, and the anonymous givers from the community. And a very special "thank you" to our local newspapers who let the community know that the "sale was on"!
We are delighted to announce the following winners of the raffles: Jack Cranfill won the ornate shell framed mirror and Eddie Foster won the beautifully hand-painted horseshoe crab. Both of the raffle winners were two of our major donors for the Winter Rummage Sale and non-members of our parish; proving once again the importance of community support!
