The proceeds from the fundraiser benefit a Leadville Catholic youth group who is going on a trip to Rome and Medjugorje this May 2014. Holy Family Parish in Leadville is hosting eight local youth, along with several adults and spiritual advisor Rev. Jesse Perez on pilgrimage to this most holy place.

Since last year the group has raised monies through hard work, bake sales and dinner fundraisers. They are $2,000 shy of their $18,000 goal, according to Lilly Vigil one of the group’s organizers.Fish Fry Poster
