IRMO- Our Lady of the Hills' Knights of Columbus Council 6892 will hold a community wide Operation H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everyday) Dinner for  for its Council's 2011-201 Operation H.O.P.E. fund raising efforts, on Wednesday, August 24, 2011.   The family and community oriented fund raising breakfast will be held at CiCi's Pizza located at 1620 St. Andrews Road located near Irmo,and will be from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.   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 South Carolina Special Olympics and Pendergrass Fairwold School in Columbia.   Our Lady of the Hills' Irmo Knights of Columbus Council has received such a wonderful response from its last two annual Saturday breakfast at Fatz Cafe in Irmo, that they decided to have an evening fund raising event at a local restaurant, so more of the public and their families may get involved in this worthy project,  Over the past several years, Knights of Columbus 6892 Council has actively assisted, and continues to assist  these organizations, and their clients.  The entire public's participation in raising funds for the essential and heart warming services that the Special Olympics and Pendergrass Fairwold School provide would be greatly appreciated.  For more information on this important August 24th Community fund raising event sponsored by the Irmo Knights of Columbus Council, or to send donations to the Operation H.O.P.E foundation interested persons may contact Doug Mader, Operation Hope Chairman, at 803-240-4733.
