Mark Your Calendars: Night At The Races

Our 4th Annual St. Aloysius Night at the Races is scheduled for

Saturday, November 3rd!   Doors open at 6:00 pm – with the first race kicking off around 6:30 pm.

 

The night consists of a series of mock horse races on wooden horses.  Dice are rolled to determine how many spots horses move along the “track”.  Parishioners and friends can come enjoy a night of betting on the ponies, black jack and an incredible silent auction.  Food will be for sale and provided by local food trucks. Beer and wine will be for sale as well.  Let’s not forget about the awesome “class creations.” This year the PREP sacrament years  (2nd and 8th), as well as St. Aloysius students have created items that will also be in the silent auction – those are always a hit with parents.

Tickets are available to purchase at the Parish Office.  The cost is $20 a person in advance or $25 the night of the event.  In addition to attending, folks can purchase a horse to race, they can sponsor an entire race, donate a silent auction item, or do all three!  All of the forms you need for sponsorship are available on the website: http://bit.ly/parishforms2

 

The funds raised are divided equally between the parish, the School, Men’s Club, and Women’s Club.  We want to encourage the entire parish to attend.  This is an event where everyone can come together as one community and have a great time.  A night out to support our parish community. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer please contact Julie Reddington, juliejreddington@att.net.
