YOU Make it Possible
A message from Teri Amerine, Saint Agnes Foundation Vice President
Spring is a busy time for the Foundation as we kick-off our 2015 event season. We recently celebrated Casino Night – and what a wonderful night it was for the hospital and our Saint Agnes Men's Club!
Over 350 guests filled the Mercedes-Benz of Fresno showroom for a sold-out evening of high-stakes fun – and together raised over $69,000 in support of Saint Agnes programs. During the event the Men's Club presented a check for $203,000 to President & CEO, Nancy Hollingsworth, which represented the results of their 2014 fundraising.

Special thanks to the Men's Club, our event sponsors and attendees for making this evening such a success – we couldn't do it without YOU! Click here to look at some of the event's highlights.
May and June are also a time when the Foundation focuses on Saint Agnes' Holy Cross Center for Women. Thanks to your support, Sister Mary Clennon and her staff are able to offer help and healing to thousands of impoverished women and children who would otherwise go without. Read the story Sister Mary shared with us here of one such woman who beat the odds. DeeDee Shaw's struggles and ultimate triumph provide the backdrop to an amazing story of hope that wouldn't be possible without YOU!
Sunday, May 17 was an afternoon of fabulous hats, handcrafted teas and delicious treats as Saint Agnes Women's Club hosted Le Petit Tea, at Fig Garden Women's Club. Now in its 5th year, this sold-out event catered to generations of women and raised an estimated $13,000, for Holy Cross Center for Women. For event photos, click here.
In some of our most exciting news, the Timothy Michael Ryan Memorial Fund has agreed to match ALL DONATIONS to the Holy Cross up to $50,000 during the months of May and June! We hope you'll consider donating anytime from NOW until June 30 to have your contribution doubled!
Finally, I'd like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of you, our supporters. You're the reason we're so busy this time of year – and we wouldn't have it any other way! We love seeing you at our events and appreciate all of your generous contributions. Thank you for your support of Saint Agnes.
You really do make it all possible!
