19 Community Events Raised Over $45,000 for St. Vincent Catholic Charities!
The feeling of being part of something bigger than yourself is one of the best feelings in the world. Every year, there are a multitude of events within the Greater Lansing area that give people the opportunity to experience that feeling. In 2016, people in the Lansing area community had some amazing opportunities to help raise money for St. Vincent Catholic Charities.
