Hearts on Fire with Gratitude
The mood was festive; the ambiance, elegant; and the air was filled with expectation. It was the 170th Anniversary celebration of the Vincentians’ presence in the Eastern Province. The ballroom at the Loews Hotel was jam-packed as people mingled, enjoyed a fantastic dinner, bought raffle tickets for wonderful Philly entertainment, and supported the honorees of the night: Brother Alfred Smith, CM; the Daughters of Charity of the Province of St. Louise; and the Raskob Foundation. After dinner, Bob Kelly (from Fox 29 News) was our auctioneer extraordinaire – helping to create fun bidding wars for a Pilgrimage to Paris and Eagles vs. Giants tickets. Later in the evening, the Sensational Soul Cruisers rocked the dance floor with their fantastic music. If you were able to join us, thank you for making the night such a joy-filled experience! And if you weren’t able to come, thank you for supporting us with your prayers!
