We have had many questions about how things flow the evening of the Gala. It is a night of food, fun, fellowship and fundraising!
The evening starts at 6pm with cocktail hour, going until approximately 7:15pm. During cocktail hour there will be butler style appetizers served. Followed by a four course meal to include soup or salad (TBD), a Filet and Chicken entrée, a vegetable, and a starch. Dinner will last until approximately until 8:30pm. For dessert the chef will be making a variety of 'minis' to create a beautiful sweets table for us! There will be a vegetarian option for those that need one, please just let us know by November 1st.
Throughout the evening the silent auction area will be open for viewing of baskets. Bidding will run during cocktail hour and for a little while later in the evening. The live auction will start approximately at 8:45pm. After the live auction we will have other activities such as a paddle raise and some raffles. The check-out process will begin at 10:30pm and we will continue the music and fellowship until 11:30pm!
Masquerade masks are not required but are welcomed!

Over the past 7 years the SS. Peter and Paul Fall Gala has raised over $250,000.00 for our Capital Improvement Fund. These funds directly assist the entire campus with much needed improvements. Without these funds; repairs to our parking lot, a new roof for the Parish, a new gymnasium floor, the new phone system, campus wide technology upgrades or even the new playground would not have been possible.
This past year we raised $50,000 that went to the continuing the improvement of our Technology Department at SSPP School and Parish. These funds also allowed us to replace old playground equipment with new and safe equipment and surroundings for the students and community to use. This fund is an essential component of our parish and school and with your support and generosity, we will make this event a huge success!
