Dinner Dance Survey Results

Oct - Nov, 2016

Thank you for everyone who took the time to complete the Dinner Dance Survey last October and November. Your feedback will help organize future events to ensure St. Patrick parishioners have the opportunity to support our beneficiaries. (Since Country Club events require booking a year in advance, the 2017 event was booked last May.)  Below is a brief summary of the survey results.  There were also many valuable comments and suggestions that are under consideration by the Dinner Dance Committee.  We are focused on continuing our wonderful tradition of raising money for those in need and are looking forward to our next event on May 13th.
