List of Theme Raffle Winners:  theme raffle winners 2017 pdf



to all who attended, our generous donors and sponsors, the festival committee, the parish staff and especially our volunteers.

On behalf of the entire Strawberry Festival Committee, we want to thank all of our parish members, guests, sponsors, donors and volunteers for making this year’s event another huge success.  Thankfully we were blessed with some good weather and only about 15 minutes of rain on Sunday afternoon.  From the feedback we received when walking around and talking with our guests, everyone seemed to enjoy all of the music, food, raffles, games and desserts throughout the entire 3 day weekend.

Congratulations to the 4 main raffle money winners and the 83 theme raffle winners.  We are proud to announce that we had another record year in gross revenue in our Theme Raffle area where we had a focused on a game board theme.

Special thanks to Fr Ron, Fr Noel and the parish staff for all of their support in allowing us to design, prepare and deliver this family friendly 3 day festival.

Please mark your calendars for our 2018 St Isidore Strawberry Festival which will take place the weekend of June 22, 23 and 24.  Next year will also be our 60th anniversary for the Strawberry Festival so stay tuned for some surprises.  We hope to see you there!!
