25 Years of Blessings Receiving and Giving Away
St. Daniel The Prophet Parish
101W. Loop Rd. Wheaton, IL
SW Entrance, Door 4
Friday, August 4 ~ 6-10pm
E-vites have been sent. Please RSVP by this Friday, July 28 via Evite or call 630-858-3758. We are serving a hearty appetizer buffet this year and want to make sure we have enough for all. This evening continues to be a free event as a thank you for your continued support and prayers for the Oikos Sisters.
You will see butterflies ‘flying’ around our event this year. In the Philippines if you see a butterfly, it signifies blessings are coming your way. When blessings come to the Oikos Sisters, they are filled with joy. With overflowing happiness, they give the blessings away to those in need!
Our online auction will begin at 9am July 28 and end at 9pm the night of our event. We have many interesting items to bid on, including a trip to the Cayman Islands! These items will be on display at our event. This link to the FUN auction below will become active at 9am on July 28.
This year we are collecting school supplies for our LOVE BOXES. As you may recall, last year we collected flashlights. We ship these “love boxes” to the Oikos Sisters who distribute the supplies to families in need. Elementary and High School may be free for children in the Philippines but it’s only accessible to them if they have the transportation, uniforms and school supplies. Many students are not educated for these reasons. We welcome crayons, pencils, sharpeners, markers, water color paints, pens, scissors, rulers, calculators, school bags, backpacks and gently used tablets too! (No notebooks please as they use a specific kind in the Philippines.) Thank you!
As always, the focus of this enjoyable evening will be the updates and stories of the Oikos Sisters and thanking you for your continuous, kindhearted generosity and prayers. We will have an entertaining game or two (don’t forget to bring a few $20 bills so you can play). Bring a new friend too as we celebrate together!
