St. Louis Gonzaga Church of Utica is excited to announce its’ 17th annual Festival of Baskets fundraiser to be held Sunday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m. at Hart’s Hill Inn in Whitesboro. This fundraiser is the area’s original Festival of Baskets event and is the largest of its type — with well over 250 baskets and gift certificates. Here's how it works: It's simple; you place as many tickets in the containers next to the basket/gift certificates you wish to win. At 4pm, tickets will be pulled and prizes will be given! It's easy, fun, and also a great way to get a head start on Christmas shopping! Festival tickets are $10.00 each in advance or $12.00 at the door. Delicious homemade Lebanese food and desserts will be available for purchase. For advance tickets or for more information please contact the church rectory at 315-732-6019. Thank you to the parishioners, local businesses, and community members for such wonderful donations. This event would not be a success without you.
