A Message from the SCC President...

Dear Friends of the Slovenian Catholic Center,

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone that supporting the SCC by purchasing a raffle ticket for our $10,000 raffle. The raffle was held at our annual picnic on Sunday, August 8th and the winners are listed above
Special thanks to all our sellers including (but not limited to): Lilliana Cepon, Ray Haehnel, Ed Kovack, Mojca Magajne, Stan Markun, Nada Petrovic, Nandi Puc, Martina Hozjan Ruda, Stan Simrayh, Kristina Tkalec, and Ann Marie Zajac.

Thanks to the past generosity of our members, we were very fortunate to be able to continue to cover building and maintenance expenses during the pandemic. We are hoping that you, our members and friends, will continue to support the Center. The proceeds from the picnic and raffle will help us close that revenue gap that COVID left us with! Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the SCC; all donations are greatly appreciated and are considered to be a contribution to a public charity corporation.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our Sunday luncheons and upcoming Fall events. Stay tuned!!
