Chaired by Lisa and David Doherty, the Spirit of Charity Luncheon will honor the Gremillion Family for their generosity and support of Catholic Charities. Chuck Gremillion has not only provided leadership and philanthropic support for our many life-changing programs, but also served as a cornerstone for special initiatives like our Share Your Blessings Christmas gift distribution.

Join us to honor Chuck and the Gremillion family who have helped thousands of other families in need. Proceeds from this celebration will support our life-changing programs and services, which touch the lives of more than 300,000 people served by Catholic Charities each year.

About Catholic Charities
For nearly 80 years, Catholic Charities has provided a comprehensive network of social services for this entire region. We empower people to grow and thrive, and we work to alleviate poverty and help people become self-sufficient and live better lives.

Thank you to our Host Committee for their support!
