2018 SBA Christmas Party

There is nothing like the SBA spirit and energy,” said Sister Rosanne Loneck when asked about the annual St. Benedict Alumnae Association (SBA) Christmas Party. “This group really knows how to enjoy a good time.”

And a good time the 320 guests had at the 29th Annual SBA Christmas Party held at the Ambassador Banquet and Conference Center. The signature gift baskets for the raffle were plentiful, 76 in all. The raffle is one of the highlights of the party and this year’s proceeds benefitted the Alumnae Association and the Inner City Ministries of the Benedictine Sisters.

Two special guests at the event spoke to the group about an upcoming golf tournament. Sister Mary Lou Kownacki and Mary Hoffman shared the details and volunteer opportunities for this Benedictine Sisters of Erie Charity Fundraiser to be held on Monday, June 17, 2019 at the Lake Shore Country Club in Erie.

“Whether they won a basket or not, everyone went home happy,” shared Ann Comstock, SBA Alum Director. “I never cease to be astounded, yet extremely pleased at their loyalty and generosity.”
