St. Irenaeus Fiesta Kickoff Weekend on April 14 and 15

By Edna Ethington

Get ready for one of the biggest celebrations in Cypress, as St. Irenaeus Catholic Church prepares for their upcoming festival.
Christine and George Welsch, Co-Chairmen of the Fiesta 2012 Committee at St. Irenaeus Church in Cypress, have already started to work on plans for the Fiesta at St. Irenaeus Church on June 22, 23, and 24 .  With the theme of “California Dreamin,” the Welsch’s hope to equal or surpass the $55,000 net amount that they helped to raise with last year’s Fiesta.   The Welch’s worked with members of the Fiesta Committee on Saturday, March 31, 2012, to prepare over 4,000 letters and raffle tickets for mailing to registered members of St. Irenaeus Church.

Registered parishioners will have the first opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a number of cash prizes, including the Grand Prize of $10,000. Other parishioners and community members will be able to purchase raffle tickets and also pre-sale game and ride tickets on the Kickoff weekend of April 14 and 15. Each ticket cost is $2.00 and each book is sold for $40.00.  The seller of the winner of the Grand Prize ticket will receive $100 in cash.

The Fiesta Committee is in need of a number of different items for the game and food booths and the Fiesta’s Silent Auction.  Donations of old and new glassware are needed for a game booth, and deep fryers and steam tables are needed for the food booths. Donations of new and unused items and baskets are also needed for the Fiesta’s Silent Auction.   For glassware and other donations, contact Betty Amrikhas at 714-248-3053.

Businesses and individuals, who would like to sponsor a booth, or display a banner at the Fiesta, can contact Josie Ninofranco at 714-761-6375.

Person who wish to offer their help, or would like more information about the St. Irenaeus Fiesta 2012, can contact George Welsch at 714-402-9755 or Christine Welsch at 714-402-9755 or e-mail [email protected].
