A show of support

the Inland Register

(From the June 10, 2010 edition of the Inland Register)

The Second Annual Catholic Charities Gala held Friday, April 30 at the Davenport Hotel was filled with a wonderful energy and great camaraderie. Guests enjoyed the East Valley High School Strolling Strings during the dinner hour and were also entertained by the Catholic Charities program videos. Dancing to the tunes of Serenade after dinner rounded out the evening. The awards presentation included Volunteer of the Year – Dick St. John, longtime House of Charity volunteer; Staff of the Year – Catherine Nelson, Housing, and Jody Nelson, St. Margaret Shelter; and The Donna Hanson Award – Lynnette Jenson, Housing Social Services. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Bishop’s Medal to James T. (Tim) Welsh (pictured) by Bishop Skylstad. Welsh, President of Garco Construction, is a long-time supporter of Catholic Charities. (IR photo courtesy of Catholic Charities)
