Cards for Charity recently raised $2,600 for the Little Sisters of the Poor at Holy Family Residence during the organization’s annual card party at Elmhurst Country Club. The event included a luncheon followed by an afternoon of bridge, mah jong, pinochle, and dominoes along with a basket raffle.
The Little Sisters also sold their famous scones and cookies. All proceeds will be used to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual health services to the residents.
