STA Gala Committee

There’s a spot for everyone on this diverse and important committee! The parish gala and auction, held every two years, is a major fundraiser for our church and school. In addition to the Chair position, there are a number of committees and subcommittees: venue, acquisitions, auction item management, graphics & marketing, ticket sales, sponsorships, project management, Fund-a-Need, and communications. These committees work together to plan and host an amazing evening for our Parish community! Planning begins in November before the event, to be held the following fall. Meetings are typically held once a month through the summer, then more frequently leading up to the event. The hourly commitment depends entirely upon what you are willing and able to give. Any and all talents welcome!
