Star of the Valley hosts “Big Event”


Thursday March 15th 2018 - 5:00pm to

The St. Patrick’s Day dinner and dance, featuring the fabulous Charlie Baker Band, the most popular social event Star of the Valley Catholic Church puts on, has a new name and focus. It is now the “Big Event,” a fundraiser with lots of “fun,” created to ensure Star of the Valley parish now, and in the future, remains on firm economic footing.

The “Big Event” will be held Thursday, March 15, starting at 5 p.m. at the parish center. Added attractions this year will include an “Irish” Sweepstakes Raffle with a first prize of $1,000 cash, a 50/50 raffle, and benefactors and sponsors who donate $250 or more will be eligible for a special drawing of dinner for two at a local five-star restaurant.

Otherwise, the dinner/dance format remains the same with a cocktail hour (cash bar) and hors d’oeuvres, Irish corned beef and cabbage dinner, Baileys Irish cream dessert and dancing to the Charlie Baker Band.

The “Big Event” is open to everyone in the community, not just parishioners. Dinner is only $30 per person. Reservations close March 9. “Irish” Sweepstakes Raffle tickets can be obtained through the website starofthevalleybigevent.com or purchased before the Masses at 4 p.m. Saturday and 9 and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

For more information about becoming a benefactor contact Drew Hofmann, 949-233-7280. The categories are Philanthropist, $1000 or more; Supporter, $500-$999; Patron, $250-$499. For more information about the “Big Event” dinner, contact Jim Warman, 230-2682, or go to starofthevalleybigevent.com.
