Friends of Dominican Sisters

We appreciate your interest in The Friends of the Dominican Sisters – STL. Our bond is the Education/Service/Love we have received from these dedicated women. Join us in giving back by getting involved with our fund raising activities to benefit their general welfare and retirement needs. There are 361 members in their order. 23 over the age of 90 and 25 under the age of 60. Presently there are 313 members between the ages of 60 and 90. This makes their retirement needs urgent and requires our immediate support.

We lost our good friend and Steering Committee member Tony Russo on Tuesday, October 18th.  Tony will be sorely missed as a Committee member and as a dear friend.  He is survived by his wife of 43 years, the love of his life Jeanne.  Dedicated father to Katie, Tony Jr., Joe and Jim.  He was the fun-loving Paw-Paw to his eight grandchildren, and friend to many.  His larger than life personality, playful humor and independent spirit will always be remembered.  Please remember Tony and his family in your prayers.

This year's Trivia Night was held on Saturday, October 1st at CBC High School.  With continued support from our 70 table sponsors and 90 dinner certificates from local restaurants, we were able to raise $25,000.00 for the Dominican Sisters.  During our eight years of existence, this was our most profitable one night event.

Thanks for all of our participants and the many volunteers who made this event a success.  Special thanks to our Trivia Master Phil Donato, and Mike Bartoni and Michael Jordan from CBC High School.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next year!
