Once again Brothers of Mercy have taken their fundraising initiative to a whole new level. Combining the elegance of the Caritas Awards dinner, with the fun and excitement of Oktoberfest, we have created Care-A-Thon 2021.

It will air on Buffalo’s very own WBBZ-TV Sunday, November 14th starting at 8pm. This televised event will be hosted by WBBZ’s John Discullio and WIVB’s Gabrielle Mediak and feature many special guests.

Mary Jo Ketchum

My life work has been dedicated to fund-raising for disadvantaged children and adults.

As chair of the Brothers of Mercy Advisory Council for over twenty years, it has given me great pleasure to help grow the Foundation and raise funds for much needed projects which have contributed to the growth of the campus.  Most recently, I served in the Capital Campaign Cabinet, “The Legacy Continues With You”, dedicating my efforts to raise the much needed “seed” money for the new Sacred Heart Assisted Living with Enhanced Services and Memory Care.  It has given me great pleasure to be a part of all the change, growth and development on the Brothers of Mercy campus!

I am humbled to serve on the Advisory Council for many years and I am honored to have been chosen as the Patsy Casilio Humanitarian of the Year this year. 

I never could have imagined that when we started this dinner in a church hall over twenty years ago, it was destined to grow to a 500 person gala and most recently to a televised event in front of 6000 plus viewers.  I am privileged to have been so involved with this growth. 

It has been my way of “Paying it forward” as several of my family members were cared for so tenderly by the Brothers of Mercy.  For this, I will always be grateful.
