2nd Annual Father Wheeland 5K & Raffle Fund Raiser for Holy Cross

Many Thanks to All Who Made The 2nd Annual Father Wheeland 5K Race & Raffle Fund Raiser Such a Success!

I would like to thank all of the volunteers who made the Father Wheeland 5K/Raffle such a great event. Special shout out to Lorisa LaRocca and Cathy Tortorice for their great work on the 5K. Also, to Sam Meloni and all of the “Food Crew” for all of their hard work.

This year, we made a $5,444.18 profit from the 6-hour 5K Run, Raffle, and Food.

Last year, we made a $7,144.24 profit from the 3-day Festival.

Thank you all who ran the 5K, purchased raffle tickets, and who joined us for great food and friendship.

Steve Morgan, 5K Race/Raffle Chair

This Event Replaces our Annual Holy Cross Parish Festival

A number of reasons have made it impossible to host our annual festival this year including, but not limited to:

The costs of rides, tent rental, restrooms, and security are increasing.

Over the last few years, we have made very little money for the amount of time and energy expended by fewer and fewer parishioner volunteers.

The Festival is so weather dependent that one bad night can wipe out our profit.
