FRIARS HOLD SUCCESSFUL BENEFIT DINNER
Every year it gets bigger and bigger.
In order to raise funds for the loan repayment for the building of the new friary in 2007, the friars hold a Founders Day benefit dinner every August. The first friars (the Founders) came to Guam in August of 1901.
Thanks to the heroic work of many volunteers, the dinners are always a huge success. Many people look forward to it every year.
The dinner, held at Saint Francis School's cafeteria, is beautifully decorated. A hotel-rank chef prepares the dinner for over 400 guests.
Besides the great food, drink and company, auction items,prizes and entertainment make for a merry time.
Father Jose Villagomez is one of several performers at the dinner, but also a regular as well as a favorite performer.
