Supporting St. Margaret Shelter

the Inland Register

(From the April 12, 2007 edition of the Inland Register)

Catholic Charities hosted its 10th annual Spirit of St. Patrick party on March 9. The event, held at Mukogawa Fort Wright, raised over $15,000 for St. Margaret Shelter, which provides housing, parenting and life skills classes, and more for homeless women and their children. The fundraising was followed by dancing, enlivened by the classic rock of live band PF Flyer. According to Dr. Rob McCann, the Executive Director of Catholic Charities Spokane, the event was “a wonderful combination” of philanthropy and fun. The proceeds, he said, will support nine single mothers and their families living at St. Margaret for one month.” Pictured: participants Bob and Becky Schmidlkofer.
