30th Annual Slovak Festival
After careful and thoughtful consideration, aware of the uncertainties, we are proceeding with plans for the parish’s 30th Annual Slovak Festival. At this time, we are moving ahead with great hope that we can host a one-day Festival on either Saturday, August 22 or Sunday, August 23. Although it may look a bit different from past festivals, we plan to offer a day where we can come together as a parish community and celebrate, along with others, the parish’s Slovak heritage. The Festival times and details are still to be determined, so please check our website at and the parish bulletin for festival updates.
As in years’ past, parishioners are asked to support this event by selling or purchasing tickets for the festival raffle. We are mindful, however, of the financial toll the pandemic has taken on everyone. Therefore, we ask that you prayerfully consider whether you can sell or purchase tickets mailed to you. As most of you know, the profit from the festival and raffle provide great support for the parish and our many parish projects. Tickets are $2 each, and a book of six tickets is $10
Seven chances to win!
Five winning tickets will be drawn on Sunday of the festival, with a 1st place prize of $5,000, plus two “Early Bird Drawings” held in June and July. Early Bird Drawings: As an incentive to turn in sold tickets promptly, there will be two “Early Bird Drawings” – Sunday, June 28, 2020 ($250 cash prize) and Sunday, July 26, 2020 ($200 cash prize). To be eligible for the “Early Bird Drawings”, the ticket stubs and money must be received in the parish office by the end of the business day on the Friday before the dates of the drawings. All tickets are eligible for the subsequent “Early Bird Drawing” and for the BIG drawing on Sunday, August 23, 2020.
Please note that it is not necessary to wait to turn in all of your tickets at one time. You may turn in tickets as you sell them. If you are in need of additional tickets to sell, they will be available in the parish office or you may contact Karen Bove at (248) 709-9055 or email@example.com.
More than ever, your support is greatly appreciated. May God bless you and keep you safe in His care.
