St. Anselm’s Fall Harvest Festival Benefits Trinity Center
Each October St. Anselm’s celebrates the Harvest Festival, the primary fund raising event for Outreach. Harvest Festival proceeds go directly to support the work of Trinity Center in its efforts to feed and support local area homeless and to bridge them from the alleyways and overpasses back into self-supporting lives. Trinity Center is an oasis for the homeless that is visited each day by an average of 50-60 people to get clothing, food, showers and general help.
The Harvest Festival, put on entirely by volunteers, is regularly attended by more than 100 people. Guests are entertained by Festival Games, music and treated to a delicious dinner. Funds are raised through a combination of dinner sales, a random prize drawing, silent auction, and a live auction. The top prize is a seven-day cruise for two on the Holland America Cruise Line, winner’s choice of Alaska, Caribbean, and Mexico escapes.
Proceeds from the event are generously donated to Trinity Center.
