FAMILY CENTER NEWS
The Family Center Committees are working diligently to prepare for a spring 2009 ground breaking. The Capital Campaign Committee will be in touch with everyone in our community to have meetings to review the project and your pledge. We are asking for families to consider a pledge of $3,000 that can be paid over 3-years. This translates to $83 per month, less than your cable bill for some. We also can make giving easy by offering a weekly pledge box at the Pangari where you can put your donation in the box with your name and it will be applied to your total contribution. No donation is too small. We also can arrange monthly, bi-annual and annual payments. The important point is to pledge so that our Family Center is financially supported by the community. For those who have been blessed we look to you to match what our forefathers did to make the Cotsidas Auditorium happen over 50 years ago. There are lso naming right opportunities whereby you can honor your family name or in memory of a loved one. And there is Estate Planning too. Please take the initiative to learn about the Family Center project and how you can be a part of our legacy for now and future generations. God Bless You.
Pledges to date: $2,012,213
