St. Luke’s gets $2,000 donation


The Maronite Young Adult Group from the St. Louis Gonzaga Church in Utica has made a $2,000 donation to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare.

The youth group hosted a Fall Social Hour with proceeds benefiting the Network. The event took place at Aqua Vino Restaurant and Banquets where there were prize drawings and entertainment by Anthony LaBarbera.

“The Saint Louis Gonzaga, Maronite Young Adult Group chose CMN as the charity to donate to as we have family ties to CMN and have known several miracle children over the years,” said Zachary Lewis, group co-chair. “We were pleased that our Fall Social Hour was a great success and hope that our small donation has an impact on saving and improving the lives of children in our community.”

The youth group is a Christian life movement for individuals who choose to learn more about their Catholic faith.

It puts together the tools and programs needed to help its members understand the Christian virtues and then put them into practice.

It achieves these goals by conducting a series of activities including social events, community service and supporting Eparchial organizations and activities.
