Bishop’s Medal awarded at Catholic Charities Gala

the Inland Register

(From the June 9, 2011 edition of the Inland Register)

The Third Annual Catholic Charities Gala was held Friday, May 6, at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane. The evening included a meal, an awards ceremony and viewing a video presentation highlighting St. Margaret Shelter’s 50 years of service to women and children. The event’s surprise was a flash mob choreographed by Catholic Charities community members and a group of students from Christian Youth Theater, singing “Lean on Me.” Gala guests joined in by singing and clapping, giving the group a standing ovation. Catholic Charities awarded the Volunteer of the Year to Marguerite Michels, of Volunteer Chore Services; Staff of the Year to Peggy Butler, a dedicated preschool teacher at St. Anne Children and Family Center; the Donna Hanson award to Ted Baker, a Catholic Charities Counselor; and the St. Margaret Wellness Recognition to Brandy Skinner. Bishop Blase Cupich presented the Bishop’s Medal to Don and Diane Kelly (pictured), long-time supporters of Catholic Charities both financially and as volunteers.
