Hidden Treasures Banquet

The first annual Hidden Treasures Banquet on Saturday, June 19, 2010 was a huge success. Over 840 guests poured into 707 West Broad Street- the former Graham Ford Dealership for a lovely dinner and program ("Pro-Graham") to help support the museum and Holy Family Soup Kitchen.

Our keynote speakers were Doctors Peter Kreeft and Kenneth Howell. They each gave a beautiful appeal to help support the museum. Dr. Howell spoke on the importance of continuity with the past, and how our museum keeps alive the important art and history of the Catholic Church. Dr. Kreeft spoke on the importance of both the soup kitchen and museum. As it is important to be fed physically, it is more important to be fed spiritually. The museum, he said, is food for the soul.
In all, it was a wonderful evening with many blessings. The outpouring of support from the community was simply overwhelming. Our sincere thanks to the many dedicated volunteers and benefactors who helped to make this a truly memorable evening.
