    A Christmas Fundraiser Dinner with the Honorable E.J. Salcines
    Thursday, December 6, 2018
    Cocktails at 5:30pm 
    Dinner and Program 6:00-9:30pm

    Tampa Garden Club   

    Last year we had a fantastic inaugural Christmas Fundraiser event with Bishop John Stowe, O.F.M. Conv., of the Diocese of Lexington in Kentucky and Orlando Police Officer, Adam Gruler, who was on duty at the Pulse Night Club; as a result of witnessing the shootings that night, Adam attended the Post Trauma Training at the Franciscan Center.
     
    This year we are also blessed to be celebrating 48 years in the Tampa Bay area and much of this is owed to Joseph E Miyares.   Joseph was a dear friend of the Sisters and a Tampa Attorney. He gifted his estate to Reverend Mother Joan Marie Wheeler, OSF in 1958. The Franciscan Center opened in October of 1970 under the Direction of Mother Lucian Walsh, OSF, and became the first spiritual center owned and operated by the Congregation of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, N.Y. 
     
    Your support is so important to our on-going operations.  We rely on donations to keep our facility updated, the grounds maintained, and the cost of programming down.  Since 1970 thousands of people, including Religious, Interfaith groups, and first responders have come to this sanctuary for Post Trauma Trainings, group retreats, spiritual direction and hospitality.
