Celebrating Love, Friendship and Mission

From dancers to prize and raffle winners to surprise reunions, the second annual MSC Oktoberfest in April event was a wonderful celebration of love, friendship and mission. MSC Sisters extends sincere gratitude to all who attended this fundraiser and/or sponsored the event and to the many individuals and businesses who provided in-kind gifts for our guests to enjoy. Additionally, each Sisters is thankful for the volunteers who donated hours of their time to create a positive experience for all: Marcella Shaver, Committee Chair, Andrea Bensusan, Linda Calderin, Nancy Chaiko, Sue Kasopsky, MJ McClennan, Carol Noga, Rita Phillips, and Barb Spinka.
