Get ready to wear your best boots and sparklies to the first-ever Boots and Bling Gala, a fundraiser for St. Mary’s Catholic School.
The gala will start with appetizers and drinks at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at the Kennedy Gym, 705 Holbrook.
Tickets are $45 per seat which includes a prime rib dinner cooked by the Knights of Columbus and appetizers and desserts provided by the ladies of the parish, Katie Casper, chair of the gala committee said.
There are complimentary drinks with the dinner, then a cash bar after attendees use their drink tickets.
“We wanted a fun theme, to make it a fun event,” Casper said. “It’s not a black tie, it’s a country casual affair.”
The community is invited to the adults-only evening of fun, fellowship and raising funds for the school, she said.
“Our school is funded mainly through our church,” Casper said. “This is another way to help give our kids the best education we can.”
There will be a live auction and silent auction during the evening.
Some of the live auction items include a Chief’s Sports Package, a Royals Sports Package, a hog-hunting trip to Texas, a weeks stay at a cabin in Colorado among others.
Larry Martin will be the auctioneer.
To make reservations, call the school at 620-223-6060.
Reservations are required and still being accepted. Tables of six or eight people can be reserved.
Members of the gala committee are Casper, Krista Gorman, Jarett Dauben, Mark McCoy, Pat Renfro, Dale Cation, Chrystal Cowen, Tammy Hill and Deb Martin.
