***A Tribute To Father Paul Engel Gala Event***
Point Pleasant, New Jersey

September 9, 2021- Lobster Shanty Sunset Ballroom

Tickets: $100 per person

Dear Friends and Supporters of Downey Side Adoption Agency,

Now that we are beginning to return to normality and enter a Covid19 free era that all of us desire so much, I am happy to announce our annual fundraiser will be held on September 9, 2021 at the Lobster Shanty Restaurant in Point Pleasant Beach.

I hope you can continue as in the past with your participation, donations and gifts to benefit our mission of placing foster children into permanent homes.  Almost 8,000 children ages 6 through 17 have already found loving forever families.

This year is special since our celebration will be a tribute to Rev. Paul Engel, OFM, Cap who founded Downey Side in 1967.  Fr. Paul himself has worked tirelessly for the past 54 years to make this happen for children throughout the U.S.

We thank you for any contribution you can give to benefit this challenging work and help us get more kids into permanent families.  Save the Date postcards to be  mailed in due time.

Sr. Elizabeth Engel, O.P., MS

Executive Director
