Dinner will benefit Rustic Hope


VERSAILLES – St. Denis Knights of Columbus Council 1756 in Versailles is hosting a German-style dinner to benefit Rustic Hope on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the K of C hall in Versailles.

The meal will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Menu includes cabbage rolls, brats and kraut, pork loin sauerbraten, red cabbage, mashed potatoes, dessert and beverage. Donation is $20 per individual with proceeds benefiting Rustic Hope, a non-profit organization offering free support to single mothers before, during and after delivery.

According to its website, Rustic Hope, located in Russia, provides services that may include temporary housing, transportation, food, clothing, baby supplies, daycare, adoption information, post-abortive counseling and parenting classes. “More importantly, Rustic Hope provides unconditional love. We consider every woman and child we help an important part of our family,” the website says.

The Knights of Columbus vigorously defends the dignity of each human being at every stage of life and works hard to help build a culture of life in our world. The work that Rustic Hope does for those women in need within our area is outstanding and aligns well with the Knight’s mission of charity.
