Fish Fry Raises Over $110,000
This year’s Fish Fry profit – $110,776 – was announced Sunday (April 22) at an appreciation picnic for volunteers hosted by Fish Fry Co-Chairs Frank McSorley and Mike Cuddy in Pine Community Park.
The profit is split 50/50 between St. Alphonsus Parish and Blessed Francis Seelos Academy.
The 2018 Fish Fry broke previous records – we served 13,870 dinners during Ash Wednesday (takeout only) and the seven Lenten Fridays. Of that amount, 8,471 were takeout dinners. We averaged 1,945 dinners a night — 780 dine-in and 1,165 takeout.
This year’s total profit is up 12 percent from last year’s $99,000.
