IRMO- Our Lady of the Hills' Knights of Columbus Council 6892 will hold it's Second  Annual Community Wide Operation H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everyday) kickoff breakfast for its Council's 2011-2012 Operation H.O.P.E. fund raising efforts.

The First Operation H.O.P.E kick-off breakfast at the Irmo Fatz Cafe was held this past August, and received such a positive response from the public that the Our Lady of the Hills' Knights of Columbus decided to try and make the kick-off breakfast an annual event.  Operation H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everyday) is a nation wide Knights of Columbus campaign, that benefits various charities that work to assist and enhance the lives of physically and mentally Challenged citizens, and 85 percent of all proceeds stay within the community in which they are raised.  All of the proceeds for Operation H.O.P.E fund raisers put on by Irmo Council 6892, at Our Lady of the Hills Catholic Church, go to support Special Olympics and Pendergrass Fairwold School in Columbia.   Over the past several years, Knights of Columbus 6892 Council have actively assisted, and continues to assist  these organizations, and their clients.  The entire public's continued participation in raising funds for the essential and heart warming services that the Special Olympics and Pendergrass Fairwold School provide would be greatly appreciated.  Tickets are $7.00, and may be purchased in advance or at the Broad River Rd. Fatz Cafe, on the day of the event.
