Donation to beat to win a week at a Nantucket cottage: $5,000!
Deborah Newhouse Dunham (Grand Coteau/Duchesne-Houston 1970), AASH Southern Regional Director, in September will ride her bike 330 miles from St. Charles, MO, to Sugar Creek, KS, to raise money for Old St. Ferdinand Shrine.
She hopes to raise $50,000, or just over $150 per mile.
To sweeten the pot, Deb has made a pledge of her own: The largest single donation will earn the giver a free week’s stay at her fabulous vacation home in Nantucket, MA, which normally rents for nearly $6,000/week.
As we plan the upcoming events for the fall and winter season, the Board would like to have some ideas for events that might be of special interest to our membership.
