Our 2016 Hands & Hearts Brunch and Auction showed La Posada Providencia’s board, staff, volunteers and clients how far reaching and committed the support is to “Welcoming the Stranger and Making a Difference” in our community.

More than 300 supporters attended our annual brunch, held Saturday, Feb. 6, at La Sierra Event Center, in Harlingen.

“We are moved and grateful for the great turn out at our event,” said Program Director Sister Zita Telkamp, CDP. “Year after year, we touch more lives and create more hope for the hundreds of men, women, children and families who come through our doors. We couldn’t do it without you.”

Although La Posada’s staff is still processing the results of the fundraiser, which we will share with you later through this e-newsletter, we didn’t want to wait to show our appreciation to all of those who made this event possible.

A huge thank you to our sponsors and donors: Your monetary and in-kind donations made it possible for us to host an event worthy of this wonderful community.
