Letter: Grand time at dance also benefitted Catonsville nonprofit

Letter to the editor

December 1, 2012


On behalf of the board of directors of the CEFM Network (formerly Catonsville Emergency Food Ministries), I would like to thank the attendees of the Loverde Family Community Fund dance that was held at the Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville on Oct. 27.

The guests donated almost 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food, which will be distributed over the holidays to needy families in our community.

I would also like to thank fraternity members of Lambda Chi Alpha for their assistance in collecting the food at the dance and selling 50/50 tickets.

The raffle raised almost $1,400. Half of that amount went to the winner; the rest will be used by the CEFM Network to also help less fortunate families.

Joe and Cindy Loverde are a wonderful asset to the Catonsville community and, once again this year, showed their support for the CCBC Foundation along with the CEFM Network.

Richard Hiteshew, vice president
