Join Queen of Angels parishioners for wintertime fun and games. Our adults-only fundraiser Winter Toast needs donations of wine and other items, and all are invited to cheer on our basketball players at Pack the Gym Knight and let loose at the Commons Valentine's Day Family Dance.
WINTER TOAST WINE CELLAR, AUCTION ITEM COLLECTION UNDERWAY!
It’s back! The Queen of Angels Wine Cellar at Winter Toast on February 23. We need your help to collect bottles of GREAT wine to be auctioned off during the evening. Getting ready to purchase wine for parties, gifts, wonderful dinners? Fine Wine Brokers, 4621 N. Lincoln, has generously partnered with us this year to help create our cellar.
And the best part: for every $100 in purchases, they will donate a free bottle. You can leave your bottle there with your name and we will pick it up. Please make sure you let them know you are from Queen of Angels.
Join us for an evening of games, fun and camaraderie as we “Stock the Bar“ for Winter Toast from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, January 26, at the Atlantic Bar, 5062 N. Lincoln Ave. Come and donate a bottle of wine or spirits to be shared at Winter Toast. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
In other Winter Toast news, planning is well underway, BUT we need your help! Please consider donating to help make this event a huge success. We are in need of wine, sporting event tickets, play or ballet tickets, spa and restaurant gift certificates, rounds of golf, connections to liquor distributors and help with travel packages (airfare, condos/hotels, and lake houses). Monetary donations are also being accepted to “supplement” auction items.
If you have any questions, contact Fundraising Chair Melissa Richlen at 312-363-9163 or email@example.com.
