Twice a year, the Maryhill Knights of Columbus host their famous “Vegas Night” where individuals of all ages are invited to come out for a chance to win turkeys, hams, grocery hampers, quilts, gift certificates and more. The event has been running for over 45 years, with all of the proceeds going to support local charities. What a wonderful gift!

The proceeds from their event held in November 2016 were split between Strong Start and Michael House in Guelph. Their generous gift of $1,700 will be used to support our Letters, Sounds and WordsTM program in Catholic schools, helping young children learn to read. We are more than appreciative of this support and thank each and every member of the Maryhill Knights of Columbus for investing in our children’s futures.

To learn more about the Maryhill Knights of Columbus and their work in the community, we invite you to visit their website.
