As of the first week of May, the total monies pledged to our capital campaign are now $2.3 million and over $640,000 in hand from eleven families! Last month, one of our families finished their three year, $100,000.00 pledge to the campaign, and for this we thank them profusely. This same family has also said that they intend to stretch their pledge two more years to continue supporting our project. Many, many thanks to our dynamic capital campaign committee: Justin Bosl (co-chair), Dimitri Haloulos (co-chair), George Psefteas, Gary Wallner, Matthew Jameson and Nick Vriheas.
As our fundraising continues, our parish steering committee, led by Fawaz Khanachet, are actively looking at properties in the Tri-Valley area as potential sites to build a new church and multi-purpose facility. After meeting with several realtors and compiling information, Fawaz gave a very encouraging report at the last parish council meeting on potential sites in the tri-valley. With the parish council in full support of this project, we are actively looking to meet and engage a commercial realtor, as well as continue to network with people in key positions in Pleasanton and elsewhere. Stay tuned!
Please keep our capital campaign and steering committees in your prayers as they undertake this historic task in the life of our community. Thank you again for your support.
