Over 45 guests including Missionary Sisters Pietrina Raccuglia, Provincial; Provincial Councilors Diane Olmstead, Tommasina Lanski, Catherine
Garry; and Sisters Renee Kittelson and Arlene Van Dusen enjoyed an incredible evening at the Seattle home of Craig and Liz Suhrbier on Tuesday, May 3.
Also joining the Sisters and the Suhrbiers were fellow CMF Board member Frederick Scheetz and his wife, Connie, Stella Maris Province CFO Kevin Dolan, and CMF President & CEO Nick Vendikos, along with Development Coordinator, Mike Pimpinella.
“It was an incredible evening,” said Nick. “Craig and Liz opened their home and hearts to friends and family to help us spread the word about the Foundation and the programs and institutions it supports.”
“What made this evening so special,” Nick continued, “was the graciousness and hospitality of the Suhrbiers. The evening allowed us to spend time with longtime benefactors and meet many new friends. All I can say is ‘thank you.'”
After a welcome and introduction, by Craig and Nick, Sr. Pietrina served as the keynote speaker and informed our guests about the life of Mother Cabrini, the call to service we all must answer and the “Year of the Immigrant.”
CMF would like to thank the Suhrbiers for their support and hospitality.
