A Cardinal's Christmas

| December 6, 2012 | Calendar

Catholic Charities hosted an Oct. 4 Champagne Reception at Christofle in the Galleria as a prelude to its fourth annual fundraising luncheon, “A Cardinal’s Christmas,” with His Eminence Daniel Cardinal DiNardo on Saturday, December 8 at the River Oaks Country Club.
This year’s event is chaired by Holly and Michael Garner along with their daughters, 7-year-old Audrey and 3-year-old Meredith Garner, who will have the distinct honor of serving as the St. Nicholas Co- Chairs. For the Garner family, “A Cardinal’s Christmas” has become a treasured family tradition.
Suzanne Maloch will serve as this year’s Underwriting Chair.
The Dec. 8 event, which begins at 11:30 a.m., is uniquely designed with activities to delight both the young and the young-at-heart.
The luncheon offers an opportunity to step away from the chaos and commercialism that often seems to accompany the holidays. On this special afternoon, family and friends can gather to celebrate the spirit of the season and listen as Cardinal DiNardo shares the enchanting story of the true meaning of Christmas.
All proceeds from “A Cardinal’s Christmas” will benefit the Children and Family Services of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
