SAVETHEDATE_2015InauguralGala_OutHEARTARTSave the Date: April 25, 2015!

Mark your 2015 calendars with the date for our Frassati Catholic Academy Inaugural Gala: April 25, 2015. Our theme for Frassati’s first gala event is “New Beginnings”. The event will include amazing food, beverages, live and silent auctions, music and lots of time to socialize. But most importantly, it will provide a fun opportunity for us to join together as a community to combine our talents, ideas and passion for our children’s education.

The committee is already deep into the planning stages of the event and we’d love your help. Do you have connections to businesses that would be willing to donate items to our auction? Top choices include vacations (airline vouchers/timeshare donations), restaurant gift cards, sports/concert tickets, and spa gift cards. Consider what you would bid on at the auction – those are the items we’d like to make available! If you have items or connections for the auction, please contact Beth Doroff at beth.doroff@gmail.com.

Watch for an official Save the Date item in your child’s folder soon!
