Council Grand Knights are reminded to bring their donations to the 97th State Convention and get a ballot (one for every $50 donated) towards the drawing of the Foundation’s Fr. Leo Boone Statue. Councils are also reminded that whichever Council donates the most to the Foundation during each fraternal year it will receive the Fr. Michael J. McGivney Statue for one year. Both statues are hand carved and crafted recognized and celebrated works of art by Past State Deputy and founding Charitable Foundation Chair Al Durham.
