Local YMCA set for “Gala Event”

Posted on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 7:52 am

An elegant “Gala Event” on March 25 is being planned by local residents, Mary Wallace and Cami Blackman. The event is meant for the community to come together, enjoy a nice meal, mingle, and have a good time. It will be held at the Sacred Heart Parish Center in Vandalia and include a social hour, served meal, and entertainment. Gift baskets will also be available for fun, competitive bidding.
The social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. The meal will include American cut pork chop, salad, baked potato, rolls, dessert, and beverage. Entertainment will be provided by the St. Cecelia Music Club. To assist with planning the event, tickets must be purchased in advance for $25 and sponsorship tables for families, organizations, and businesses may be reserved for an additional fee. Sponsorship tables will receive program recognition.
March 17 is the deadline to reserve tickets or sponsorship tables. Please contact Mary Wallace at 573-470-0937 mcwallace2020@gmail.com or Cami Blackman at 573-470-6161 camiblackman@gmail.com.
On numerous occasions, area residents, businesses, and organizations have risen to the need to improve and benefit the local communities. The area should be very proud of the accomplishments to construct new facilities for existing and new businesses in 2017. It is desired for the event to become a standing tradition and serve as a helpful mechanism to bring communities together and support local needs.
The proceeds for the 2017 Gala Event will be donated to the Eastern Missouri Family YMCA Project.
