In one of its largest fundraisers of the year, Holy Rosary Catholic Church is hosting its 21st Annual Holy Rosary Gala on Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Market Street. Each year, this ticketed gala is held to raise funds for Holy Rosary Catholic School, the parish school of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. The school is dedicated to providing its students a sound foundation of the Catholic faith, while instilling a deep sense of knowledge and education.
The event features dinner, dancing, and a live and silent auction. Correlating with this year’s theme “Fire & Ice,” auction items — items donated by local restaurants, jewelers, and businesses — range from diamonds to refrigerators to fire pits. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails are served between 5:30 and 7 p.m., with a buffet-style dinner by local caterer Just Rennie’s immediately following. Ticket reservations can be made through the Holy Rosary Parish Office, starting at $70 per person. After Dec. 31, ticket prices are $80 per person.
“Because we only have two major fundraisers each year, this gala is extremely important to our school,” says Christine Gilles, development director Holy Rosary Catholic Church.
