2017 Gala logo draft 1112017.png

Please join us on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 6:30pm at the Monsignor Keesler Parish Center.  This wonderful semi-formal event will feature dancing, dancing and more dancing, from the roaring 20’s, the nifty 50's, the dynamite 70’s, the pop culture 80’s and more! 

Bid on our exciting auction items, grab root beer float and dessert in our St. Mary's 50's Diner, play our Gala themed games and more!  There will be a Best Decades Costume Contest with prizes that you do not want to miss!

We are now accepting items for our Silent Auction!  Perhaps you can donate tickets to one game from your season tickets, a weekend stay at your vacation home, or a handcrafted item you have made. Or, if you have new items suitable for re-gifting, we’d love to include your donation!
