Dear Parents/Guardians:

                              Important Gala Updates (Maalox & Mannequins)

1)     Ticket prices go up on Tuesday, Nov. 1 (buy now!) - Tickets to Gala only $50 per person now until
Tuesday. Ticket prices go up to $65 per person starting on Tuesday. You can help keep our Maalox and
Pepto Bismol at bay by buying your tickets now; and help us avoid the last-minute hang-wringing that
accompanies late ticket sales. Tickets are available and can be easily purchased from the comfort of
your laptop or computer at the parish's website: How convenient is

2)     Wish Lists for Themed Rooms - Items are still needed for our Themed Silent Auction Rooms. If you
still have not purchased your gift that will make its way to one of our Silent Auction Rooms, and you're
looking for ideas, we can help. Are you one of those beautiful people that secretly likes to buy the clothes
that are already accessorized FOR you and are already in place on a mannequin? You are SO not
alone. Just for you, we've assembled this list of items that would be awesome additions to our Silent
Auction Rooms. Read it, and buy it. Easy, huh?! (Too big of a ticket item? Grab a buddy or two to help

Or, are you just too busy to get out and buy anything? Your cash or Scrip are always welcome, too - and
we'll shop FOR you. Items (including cash, check or Scrip) may be dropped off outside the Church doors
on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Drop Off, during office hours in the Church Office, or after Masses the
next two weekends.

            Here's the list of requested items, ripe for you to pluck off the nearest mannequin:

Man Cave: Weber BBQ grill - regular size or Smokey Joe; Deep Fryer Turkey Kit; Golf Driver or Putter;
Golf Metal Hybrid Club; Nail Gun Set; Cordless Drill or Hammer Set; Premium bottles of Tequila, Single
Malt Scotch; Single Barrel Bourbon

Home for the Holidays: Kitchen Aid stand-up mixer; gift card to a house cleaning company; gift card for
an hour of interior design/decorating; a large furniture item (dresser, armoire); Keurig Coffee Maker; cast
iron cookware; area rug; festive tablecloths or table runners; whimsical home décor items

Divine Diva: Silpada jewelry; luggage; purses; scarves; sunglasses

Dig It: Outdoor Nativity; a heat lamp for a deck; garden statuary; Bistro set (perfect for a patio)

Christmas Collections: What says Christmas to you? Express your individuality by donating items that
would make it into your house during the Christmas season.

Santa's Workshop: Find a child (we know where to find over 400 of them) and ask them what's on their
"Must Have" List.

                                  Thanks to ALL! Only 30 days until Gala!
