Your Queen of Angels community asks for your support of our biggest and most important fundraiser, Winter Toast. Please join us from 6 p.m. to midnight this Saturday, February 26 in the Queen of Angels Guild Hall Gym. Come bid on impossible-to-get-anywhere-else lots at our professionally-run live auction and silent auction.This year, we'll have more ways for more bidders to walk away with a prize. Sign up for a progressive dinner party, fantastic and unique sports opportunities, a trip to Mexico, weekends in San Francisco or New York, to name just a few of our exciting auction items. Dinner is provided by Piazza Bella, a fabulous restaurant in Roscoe Village owned by a school family. Also included will be a wine and beer tasting, music and terrific company!
Tickets for $100 per person are available in the back of the church after weekend Masses, at the Parish Center and school offices and online at www.wintertoast.com. There’s still time to reserve a table for you and your friends!
|FIRST CHANCE AT WINTER TOAST AUCTION ONLINE!
An online auction is already in progress! Even if you can’t attend Winter Toast this year, there’s a chance for you to get in on some fantastic prizes and benefit our church and school. Please visit www.wintertoast.com and click on “Online Auction” to check out the available items. The online auction will close at 10 p.m. this Friday, February 25, so get online and get bidding!
OUR WINE CELLAR IS NOT YET COMPLETE…
Yes, it’s back… the fantastic Queen of Angels Wine Cellar prize! That’s right -- we’ll be auctioning off a complete 100-bottle cellar of wine February 26 at Winter Toast.
But in order to make it happen, we need everyone to do his or her part. School parents, parishioners and any interested party over 21: we need your donations! Our goal is to collect 100 or more bottles to be auctioned off as a complete cellar. If you don’t have a bottle handy and are interested in shopping locally, say no more! You can stop by either LUSH at 2232 N. Roscoe or Wine Discount Center at 1826 N. Elston. The folks at both of these fine shops will be glad to help you pick out something fabulous within your budget and if you shop at LUSH, you can leave your bottle right at the store. What’s more, for every ten bottles that are collected at LUSH, they will donate one of their personal favorites. How’s that for a deal? In addition, when you shop at Wine Discount Center, 10% of what you spend will be rebated back to our school! Just tell the sales clerk you are from Queen of Angels.
With all these great community businesses supporting us, please don’t miss your opportunity to help us out. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to cross this off your “To Do” list? Donations will be accepted until this Friday, February 25. If you have questions or need to arrange for a different drop off/pick up spot, please contact Laurel McCaleb at or call 773-343-3875. Thanks in advance for your participation… and your wine!
