Loaves & Fishes Award Dinner and Gala


Honoring Bill Ring
Recipient of the 2017 Loaves & Fishes Award for Faith in Action

Thank you to our sponsors everyone who joined us on Saturday at Catholic Charities 20th Annual Loaves & Fishes Awards Dinner and Gala. 

We were blessed to honor Bill Ring, our 2017 recipient of the Loaves & Fishes Award for Faith in Action. We are extremely honored to recognize Bill for his significant service to Catholic Charities, and to shine a light on the incredible work that he, his family, and so many others do to steadfastly support Catholic Charities services to children and youth.

We would like to share the recording of Master of Ceremony Mark Ibanez’ (KTVU) illuminating interview with Bill, as well as the two videos that debuted during the program portion of the event. Please click the links below to view the videos:

Your gift today will support our Loaves & Fishes Fund-a-Need, with proceeds directly benefiting Catholic Charities services to Children and Youth.
