Give Mom a Break & share Mom’s life-giving love at Mother’s Day Breakfast sponsored by Knights of Columbus at St. Anthony Parish Hall (across street from main church), Sunday, May 13, 8:30 – noon. Menu includes pancakes, tortas, sausages, eggs, juice and beverages. This is a donations-only breakfast. Give whatever feels good to honor Mom and make a difference!
Breakfast proceeds will go to Healing Haiti’s Children by helping to build a lab to fabricate, adjust and fit prosthetics for earthquake victims. Torero’s restaurants are the lead donor for this fundraiser. See the 1 min. video about the ispirational project.
For those unable to attend the Mother’s Day Breakfast, donations can be made payable to Knights of Columbus Charities (Memo: For Haiti Children) and sent to: Knights of Columbus c/o 13504 181st Avenue SE Renton, WA 98059.
The Knights of Columbus nationwide is working to provide prostheses to 1,000 Haitian children who lost limbs in the January 2010 earthquake. The goal is to provide each child who lost a limb with a series of prosthetic devices over the next two years, refitting the devices as they grow. The program, which will require about $1 million in financial assistance, also involves the necessary physical therapy and training for children to learn to use the devices.
