Support McAnthony Window
To the Editor:

I invite your readers to support the McAnthony Window $10,000 Reverse Raffle fundraiser.

McAnthony Window is a ministry of St. Anthony Parish in Davenport. In 2023, McAnthony Window served 33,402 meals, fed thousands of families through its food pantry, provided 24,921 bus tokens and shared countless clothing items, blankets and toiletries. We now offer men’s and women’s support groups, AA, personal finance, and job coaching classes during window hours.

Two of our window patrons entered the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. We do all of this and much more through the generosity of our parishioners, other parishes, the community and grant funding.


We are selling 200 tickets at $200 apiece for our raffle and dinner at the Starlite Ballroom at the Mississippi Fairgrounds in Davenport on June 30. As we work toward the last ticket winner of the $10,000, we will award consolation prizes throughout the evening. You need not be present to win.

If you are interested in supporting the vital work that McAnthony Window does in the Quad Cities, please contact our parish office at 563-322-3303 to purchase a ticket. For more information, visit our website at www.stanthonysdavenportiowa.org/reverse-raffle.html/. More than anything, we ask that you pray for the people we serve and our efforts to minister to them.
