Artie's Party began over two decades ago as an eclectic art auction and dinner in support of mission and ministry. Artie was a brightly colored paper mache "mascot" chosen to represent the fun evening. Each year Artie "flies" to a new locale or theme to set the stage for our fantastic evening.
Outreach and Missions at Good Shepherd offers a robust assortment of assistance and many opportunities for involvement in purposeful, meaningful service. Through our committed Outreach partners including St. George's Community Center in Riviera Beach, South Florida Haiti Project, CROS Ministries, and Food For the Poor; our own Food Pantry that serves people in our community every week, Manna Bag Ministry, Gleaning, drives for local school children and their families, Backpack Ministry for people who are homeless; and international assistance to our partners in Haiti, Guatemala, and Honduras, we are helping real people who struggle every day.
With the participation of sponsors, parishioners, and friends, we hold both silent and live auctions, host an in-person sophisticated event, and provide giving opportunities at any level.
We generally raise $30,000 to $50,000 depending on participation. That's why it's so important that you join us this year! We can't wait to share the good news of Outreach Ministry at Good Shepherd.
We love your support! For hands-on tasks, Artie's Party needs volunteers to help run the event, decorate, assist with auctions. We also need donation items and sponsors to make it a success. If you have a business or know someone who would be interested in sponsoring Artie's Party, please let us know!
