The money raised from the calendar sales benefits several worthy causes. Each year, the Knights give five $200 scholarships to area High School seniors to help further their education. They also draw six monetary prize winners for ten weeks, for a total of 60 prize winners. The first drawing for $50 this year will be on March 7, with six drawings a week. On May 1, two $500 winners will be drawn.
$1500 is also given annually to two pre-selected local organizations, with $750 going to each.
This year's recipients of the $750 gift will be the Cherokee Police Department and the Christian Action Program (CAP). The food pantry for CAP is in the basement of the I.C. rectory, but is open to all faiths.
