Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. is starting its 25th year of service to the Quad Cities with a New Orleans style Jazz Brunch at Crow Valley Golf Club on Sunday, September 28, 2014, from 11am to 2pm. Sarah Marie Young, a Chicago vocalist, will once again be the featured entertainer with her smooth, easy listening, jazz stylings. To learn more about this fabulous singer with a unique voice, check out her website at www.sarahmarieyoung.

In addition to the fabulous food and wonderful music this event will also include the following silent auction items:

  • Enjoy a uniquely private lunch for 6 – 7 with Sister Joan Lescinski, CSJ, President of St. Ambrose University, served at the Rogalski Center.

  • Private, after hours tour for 10 at the Mississippi River Distilling Co. and your choice of appetizers provided by Steventon’s. Celebrate by sampling spirits made with locally grown ingredients while touring the facilities.

  • A cooking class and dinner for 8 – 10 guests with James Steffen, Executive Chef, Crow Valley Golf Club.

  • Two Packers’ tickets with private plane transportation.

Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. (HMHI) has provided supportive housing for 780 single parents and their 1543 children during these past 24 years. These families were homeless at the time they entered the program. HMHI provides single parents with the tools and support to complete degrees, find jobs and move into their own homes. Children learn there is a different way to live; some have become the first in their family to complete high school and go on to college. The need is great, with nearly 400 applications a year; however, HMHI has space and staff to provide services to only 47 of these families at any one time.

Please join us in our celebration and support this valuable community asset.
