When most Louisvillians think of Waverly Hills, they think spooky, creepy, scary. Here at St. Vincent de Paul Louisville, we will always think caring, giving, wonderful. In early October, David Price, President of Waverly Hills Historical Society, reached out to let us know that they wanted St. Vincent de Paul Louisville to be the beneficiary of the parking proceeds from their yearly Haunted House Fundraiser.
“Each year we like to find a way to give back to our community and we try to find where we can have the greatest impact. Over the last 12 years we have chosen to do so by donating our parking proceeds collected during our largest fund raiser of the year, our Haunted House. We hope that we can help give back to the community that has helped us in our efforts to save Waverly Hills,” David explained. “We were looking for an organization whose values and goals match our efforts to impact our community and those in need. This year we re-evaluated what organizations were doing, the transparency of those organizations and how they impacted Louisville. We thought St. Vincent de Paul Louisville was a great fit for what we were looking to accomplish with our donation this year.”
We appreciate that choice as thanks for everyone who attended the Haunted House Fundraiser, Waverly Hills donated $11,790 to St. Vincent de Paul Louisville. Thank you to Waverly Hills for their gracious and generous support.
