St. Therese is again selling Entertainment Coupon books. Milwaukee editions are only $35, and can be used upon purchase. This has been a great fundraiser for us in the past, and we would like it to keep going! We will be selling them after all masses on the weekends of October 1st/2nd, November 5th/6th at the Craft Fair, and December 3rd/4th. You can also purchase editions from other regions of the country by simply clicking on the picture at the right.

Please ask your family and friends to purchase a book or two to help raise money for our parish.  They also make great Christmas presents that keep on giving all year!  Thanks for your support of this fundraiser, and please keep us in mind next year!

I am happy to report that we will again be selling Entertainment Coupon Books this fall. This has been a great fundraiser for the church over the past two years. Please keep us in mind before you purchase a book elsewhere. Our sales will begin in early August. Watch the bulletin for more details!

St. Therese Parish is hosting its first Harvest Craft Fair on the weekend of November 7th/8th. We have filled the hall with 26 of the areas crafters, and they are all looking forward to selling their wonderful handmade items. Please join us for this free event, for a great fundraiser and friend-raiser. We have many beautiful handmade raffle items as well, for which you can purchase a chance to win. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. A portion of the proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Hunger Task Force. In fact, if you bring and donate 2 non-perishable food items, you will receive a free raffle ticket. (Limit 2 free tickets per person.)

Concessions will be available all weekend, including donuts and coffee on Saturday morning. There will be a separate room where you may sit and relax away from the bustle of the fair while you enjoy your food.

Entertainment Books will also be on sale all weekend. A Milwaukee-area edition is only $35 ($5 off the cover price!) and you can take it home with you and start saving immediately. Perhaps you have relatives out-of-town, or perhaps your family has a “summer home” in some other part of the country? You will be able to order an Entertainment book from any region of the country for anywhere from $25-$40. Canada and Puerto Rico editions are also available. Payment is due on purchase, so please plan ahead! Checks will be accepted for Entertainment Books only. Remember, they make great Christmas gifts!

This is a completely indoor, handicap-accessible event, with ample free parking. We hope to see you there!

Now, we still need plenty of volunteers in order to make this event a successful fundraiser for the parish. If you are willing and able to volunteer a few hours of your time on the weekend of November 6th-8th, please call Courtney in the Parish Office to discuss your availability. We especially need help for set up and clean up.

We are also in need of some food items for our concession stand. We need cookies/bars/brownies, cans of diet soda, individual-size bags of chips, shredded cheese and shredded lettuce. Please, shredded only. If you are able to donate any of these items, please bring them to the Parish Office any time during business hours next week, or on November 7th from 6:00-8:00pm.

We are looking forward to this event, and we believe it will be quite successful, but we need your help to pull it off. If you have any questions, please email the Craft Fair Coordinators with any questions you may have. Thank you for anything you can do!

Entertainment Book Sales

Our Entertainment Book Sales are finally and officially underway! The books arrived this week, so thank you to all who have sold in advance. This weekend will be your first opportunity to pick up your books to deliver your orders. The books are $35 each, but anyone who’s had one before knows that they pay for themselves in just a few uses. We will be selling them after all masses one weekend a month until the end of the year. We will also be selling them all weekend at our Craft Fair on November 7th/8th. Take a peek at this flyer to see just a few of the businesses that offer coupons in the book.

Do you spend winters in a warmer climate? Or perhaps you’d like to give one as a gift to relatives in another state. You can now purchase Entertainment Books for any region in the country and still give credit to St. Therese. Simply click here to go to the website to search for the book you want and order it online. A lot of other regions are even cheaper than the Milwaukee edition! If you are uncomfortable ordering online, please contact Courtney or Cathy in the Parish Office to request your book, and once we receive your check to cover the amount, we will place the order for you.

This is an amazing fundraiser for us. If each family in our parish purchases just one book (500 total), we will earn $8500 pure profit. All we have to do is sell 50 books to reach the highest profit margin. At that point, we will be earning 50% of each book’s cover price. We would like to make this a yearly event, but it depends how well it goes this year. Please help us reach our goal by asking your family and friends to purchase one, or buy them as Christmas gifts–they’re good until November 2010.

Still not sure if you’re ready to buy one? Please stop by our table under the balcony at church this weekend and thumb through one of the books. We’re sure that you’ll find plenty of businesses that you already patronize. You will save money on the things you already purchase! That’s just smart shopping.

Thanks to all of you who have already supported this endeavor!
