Consider Winter Toast
The cost of a Winter Toast ticket has made some people seriously consider where their event dollar is going. Ninety percent of the money raised goes to support the well-being of the school, expanding curriculum and improving the overall academic experience. This is the largest Queen of Angels fundraiser and proceeds are thoughtfully used to pump up the excellence of the school. The remaining 10 percent of money raised benefits programs for the entire parish community, including all our children.
The event promises to be a great evening, with a silent auction boasting the return of Mamarita for
ladies and a Poker Party for the guys as well as luxury items for couples and families. Plan on a gourmet
buffet dinner from Piazza Bella, wine and microbrew tastings and lots of new lots in the live auction
including weekends in Miami, and a stay at the Punta Mita Four Seasons Resort.
But most of all, remember, it’s not just what you get for your entrance price. It’s what the school children
get, too. It may be a lot of money for a ticket but the parish and school are worth it.
