The STArlight Gala is a semi-formal benefit event which provides fun and fellowship, for 400 guests, as well as funds for today and tomorrow. Guests enjoy cocktails, a plated dinner, desert, and amazing silent and live auctions. In addition, guests are offered the opportunity to participate in "STArlight Specials".
Nearly 140 packages, including custom artwork made by our Parish School students, will be featured in the Silent Auction. From jewelry to sporting events, and everything in between, there is something for everyone!
The Live Auction will feature 12-15 incredible packages including some unique to our community and others with greater appeal, such as a once-in-a-lifetime experiences and special trips!
"Bubbles & Bling Red Jewel" is a returning favorite special with a new twist. For a small donation, guests can enjoy a glass of "Red Jewel", this year's signature drink, and have an opportunity to win a beautiful hand selected red zircon from East Africa. The winner will get to customize how the jewel will be cut and set.
Our "Top Shelf Bar" will give guests the opportunity to make a donation for a collector's edition etched glass - and refills of premium well drinks throughout the evening.
A small portion of proceeds from The STArlight Gala 2016 will benefit the Parish School PTO as funding for the Classroom Grants Program. The remainder of the proceeds will be invested in the Parish Endowment Fund, in an effort to save for the future. (Nearly $200,000 has been invested in the Endowment from previous Gala events.)
