In addition to the food and fun there will be cash prizes, and a 50 / 50 raffle.

“We are very appreciative of this generous donation from CSEA, said event committee member, Penny Foster-Pratt. “Their donation will benefit our agency in two ways as we will use it to purchase soda in cans for our Hawaiian Bunko Bash and then recycle the cans as we use them for our entries in the Novelis Oswego Works 10Kan run / 5Kan Walk/Run taking place on Sept. 20. It will also benefit Oswego County Habitat for Humanity as they receive all the proceeds from the Novelis 10Kan event.”

Pratt added that all proceeds from the agency’s Hawaiian Bunko Bash will be used to help the more than twenty human services programs that Catholic Charities provides for those in need throughout Oswego County including its food pantry and youth counseling services.

The event will be held July 22 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in St. Paul’s Priory Hall.

Tickets are $10 each and participants who bring a dish to pass will be entered in a special drawing.
