Snowball Fest 2022

We’re announcing our winter weekend festival … Snowball Fest 2022 from Saturday, Jan. 29 through Sunday, Jan. 30, 2022

Snowball Sweepstakes Raffle ….. Snowball Fest 2022 continues in the spirit of our long standing Snowball Dinner. Given the current covid situation in WNY and masking restrictions in NYS we have decided to forego our in person banquet dinner/raffle night in 2022. To keep a 17 year tradition alive we are featuring our Snowball Sweepstakes Raffle during this Snowball Fest 2022 weekend.  Over $6,000 in cash prizes will be given to lucky ticket holders per the following distribution. 

$6,000 in Total Prizes
Grand Prize:  $3,000
Second Prize: $1,000
Third Prize: $500

The donation is $10 for one ticket, but you can purchase 5 tickets for $50 and receive a 6th ticket at no charge.

* To Purchase Tickets: Tickets have been mailed to parishioners and previous Snowball customers. Additional tickets are available in the Rectory. Put completed ticket stubs along with cash/check/money order made payable to “Fourteen Holy Helpers” in an envelope.  You can get your completed ticket stubs to us by:

Polish Platter Dinner …..   Our Snowball Fest weekend includes a Polish Platter Dinner on Saturday, January 29th that will be served from 4–7 pm or until sold out.  Like Summerfest, our Polish Platter dinner features a golumbki (stuffed cabbage roll), kielbasa (servings of both smoked and fresh polish sausage), pierogi (one each of cheese and sauerkraut), kapusta (homestyle sweet and sour cabbage), plus rye bread and butter.  A nice warm meal during the winter season. Take home dinners only.  Pre-sale dinner tickets are now available for $15 which you can buy through a link below or in the Rectory.  At the event you can use our drive through line (weather permitting) or stop to pick up your dinner in the Parish Hall after buying your Raffle tickets.

This event will be produced in accord with the covid safety directives of New York State.  The Snowball Raffle is a covid safe activity as no direct attendance or contacts are required. Our Polish Platter Dinner is planned to be takeout only. Depending on the weather conditions we hope to organize a drive through lane. Also, customers may stop in the Parish Hall to pick up their pre-sales or purchase their dinners. Masks are required for everyone entering the Parish Hall. We are constantly monitoring the current covid directives and will adjust our plans according to the current conditions.  We will keep you updated.

We do hope that you’ll be able to join us. Know that we will do everything possible to keep you safe.  We are here for you as we try to do something “positive” for our parish family members and friends of 14 Holy Helpers.
