Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas – The Gathering

Courtney O’Farrell’s home was the lovely setting for The Gathering on October 1st. This marks the seventh year that the event has been held to support the New Roots for Refugees program, a ministry of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas. More than 120 guests enjoyed delectable dishes from Enjoy: Pure Food + Drink Restaurant and shopping at the farmer’s market in Courtney’s courtyard. Missy Kuklenski served as chairman of the event that raised more than $22,000.
