There is an old saying: It Always Tastes Right When It’s Cooked By A Knight!
For the nearly two year old Saint Mary’s-Holy Cross Council 15347 in Elkhart, they have taken this saying from words to action. They have conducted various meal events from pancake breakfasts to Lenten fish fries. However, an obvious need has arisen - more and durable kitchen utensils.
“While we were preparing for our first fish fry of the season, the tool that was missing that we had not thought to bring from home was rubber spatulas,” shared Council 15347 Grand Knight Jon Hand. “So at the end of the night, I asked Lisa Kautza, Independent Consultant with the Pampered Chef and wife of Council 15347 Knight Tim Kautza, to please pick out two nice spatulas for the kitchen, get them there, and send me the bill for the Knights to pay,” said Hand. “She teased me ‘The Knights should host a Pampered Chef Party!’ I laughed, but the more I thought about it over the next few days, the better the idea sounded.”
The Council 15347 Knights agreed and are hosting during April a “Stock the Kitchen” Pampered Chef fundraiser for parishioners and Knights of Saint Mary’s-Holy Cross and all of their families, friends, and Brother Knights across the Order.
Participants can purchase identified kitchen essentials for the Saint Mary’s kitchen as well as ordering items for themselves. In addition, Council 15347, as host of this fundraiser, earns free products and discounts which will be used for those identified kitchen essentials not purchased and/or for additional items that would benefit those using the Saint Mary’s kitchen.
“With Mother’s Day, graduation, and Father’s Day on the horizon, this is an ideal time to order for those you love while also helping our parish community,” said Lisa Kautza. Orders can be placed several convenient ways.
