St. Joseph School in Des Moines would like to invite you to participate in its Inaugural Blue and Gold Gala at Embassy Suites on October 8, 2016. This fundraising event will also include a Silent Auction featuring vacation packages, handmade artwork, and gifts from local businesses. Our school needs your help to make it a success. The funds raised by this event will be used for renovating the school building to meet building code requirements for classrooms, resolve handicap accessibility needs and provide a modern learning experience for St. Joseph students. St. Joseph is the only school that provides a Catholic education for the East side of Des Moines as well as neighboring communities such as Altoona, Pleasant Hill, Bondurant, Ankeny, Colfax and Runnells. We are seeking your support to help keep St. Joseph a viable consideration for families seeking a quality faith-based education.
Here are several ways you can help:
Mark your calendar now and plan to attend the Blue and Gold Gala on October 8th. Tickets are available for purchase of $75 each and include a Black-Tie dinner with entertainment.
Donate funds directly to the renovation. All donations are tax exempt and will be recognized.
Make an eternal gift of $200 to be personally recognized on a donor appreciation wall in the new construction.
Thank you, sincerely, in advance for your support of this important event. We look forward to seeing you at the Blue and Gold Gala in October.
