The Knights would like to thank all of the men, women and children who volunteered their time in helping set up, prepare, serve and clean up, especially Knights members Dan and Rob Richkus who delivered all home bound meals, Lenny Kleczkowski, Tom Frantz and Bob & Candi Longo for their leading roles in the dinners as well as the overall leader of this fundraiser Bill Butrico.

Without everyone’s dedication, the dinners would not have run as smoothly as they did. In addition special thanks to all the Sacred Heart Church Parishioners, Community volunteers, and to Lisa Thompson for managing the youths from the Sacred Heart CCD Classes who contributed many hours of help. 

The Knights would also like to thank 4th Degree Brother Knight Carl Adlassnig for running the place mat business card fundraiser and to thank the following businesses for their donations: BonVenture, Boyle Memorial Foundation, Cancela Insurance, Ciccio's Pizza, Columbia Bank, Corner Deli, Cornerstone Architecture, Doctors Express, Ed Santoro, Farinella Law, Ferraros Pizza, Franks Automotive, Giakas Cleaners, HK Truck Services, Investors Bank, Jack Pedersen Realty, KC's Korner, Marjorie Reedy Realty, Mohn's Florist, Mr. Subs, Nischwitz Seed & Feed, The Observer, Paulo's BBQ, Peter Pharmacy, Pinto Bros Disposal, Pizza Stop, R&C Auto body, Remtek, Rose Marie Pelton , South Plainfield Republican Organization, Tony's Pizza, Twin City Pharmacy and World Insurance. It’s great to see our local businesses support such a popular local event. 

The Knights also need to thank Rich from Presto Printing for donating all expenses from the Place mats and to Brother Knights Ricky McCriskin and Jimmy Gustafson for their generous donation.

Lastly Father John Paul Alvarado and Grand Knight Joe McGeehan would like to thank all of the residents of South Plainfield and out of town visitors who shared their Friday night meals over the past 6 weeks of Lent; it was a pleasure serving all of the neighbors and friends!
