New Year’s Eve Party
December 31, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 11:59 pm
New Year’s Eve Party – Activity Center – 6:00 PM (Doors Open at 5:30) – 12:30 AM
Our parish invites any and all to join us in ringing in 2018 at evening of horse racing, epic food, good drinks, dancing, and other games of chance (all at church and for a good cause). Dinner, consisting of chicken cordon bleu, roast beef au jus, red skin potatoes, and more will be served at 6:00 PM. Following dinner all guests will have an opportunity to place bets on the horses featured in our Night at the Races event. After several hours of betting on 12 races the evening will conclude with dancing from 10:30 PM until 12:30 AM.
To insure good luck, an additional meal of pork and sauerkraut will be served at 10:30 PM. Beer, mint juleps, champagne, and soft drinks will be available at an open bar throughout the duration of the event. All proceeds benefit the CCD fund that helps our parish students enjoy quality activities. Tickets are now on sale – the cost is $50.00 per COUPLE.
Additionally all couples will be able to name their own horse (owners and names will be published in the evening’s race guide). A horse owner whose horse wins will receive a $50 prize. The crazier the name the better (a track style announcer will be present to call the horse names during the races). In addition to winning real money during the races, the calling of the ridiculous horse names (chosen by their owners) is an unforgettable experience. Any individual who wishes to attend is welcome to do so – individual tickets are $30.00 each (individual tickets do not include a “horse”). If you haven’t been to a Night at the Races, it isn’t something you want to miss. The event will be held the activity center – doors open at 5:30 PM. The event is semi-formal (however you define semi-formal). In addition to the drinks provided, patrons are welcome to bring their own refreshments. Over 21 years old only. If you wish to buy a ticket please phone the rectory.
