Fundraising Programs and Overview

Our council fundraising programs are the life and foundation of our ability to provide charity to the local community.  As we learned in our First and Second Degree our guiding principle is charity through the unity and work of our fellow Knights of Columbus.  Apex Council 7186 identifies a specific charity or cause and dedicates all funds from a fundraising event to that charity.  The leadership of our council believes this greatly improves the support from our community for our programs and at the same time encouraging our members to volunteer.  We are active in the following fundraising programs:

  • Cornell Chicken collectively raised $ 1200.00 for the Coats for Children program
  • Christmas at the Biltmore raffle to support OP LAMB (least among my brethren)
  • Support for PSO events; back to school, Santa's workshop and end of year picnic
  • Fish Fry events to support Church request such as stained glass window & a new memorial for the 'forgotten, unborn and abused' as well as mission work
