Gourmet Lunch prepared by:
Executive Sous Chef John Aldewereld of Sans Souci Restaurant
at Bishop Cosgrove Center.

Date: October 21, 2011
Proceeds raised go to Catholic Charities Bishop Cosgrove Center to support homeless people and their transportation needs and the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless for our distribution of winter blankets and supplies. All those who donate to the event will have their name entered in an auction.

Anyone that donates $45 will have their name entered in the drawing to take place on November 4. Those who donate $90 will have two chances to win, $135 will have three chances to win, etc. Proceeds from the benefit will support either the Bishop Cosgrove Center and the purchase of 8 all day bus passes or NEOCH and the purchase of 2 indoor/outdoor blankets. The Bishop Cosgrove Center will use the funds to assist the transportation needs of homeless people while NEOCH will work to fill the winter needs of those experiencing homelessness.
