St. Francis Annual Gala
The St. Francis Winter Gala will be a night to remember, as Millen Hall is transformed to a grand New Orleans ball room for an evening of fun and frivolity at the 2018 "Mardi-Gras Masquerade Ball". Join us on Saturday, February 10th, 2018. A limited number of Gala Tickets are On-Sale in the Narthex, before and after each Sunday Service, or email us for other arrangements.
The 2018 St. Francis Winter Gala will host a Live and Silent Auction to raise money for two very good causes, our beloved St. Francis Basic School in Juba and the Ezo School in South Sudan, and also a local Virginia start-up, Generosity Feeds, organizers of fun events to package 10,000+ meals in 2 hours, for local families in need. Your donations are needed!
For personal Silent and Live Auction Donations, please download our 2018 Gala Auction Donation Forms, or pick one up in the Narthex. Donations can be mailed to the church, dropped off at the Ticket Table on Sundays, emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org call Rob & Monica at 703-757-7577, for donation pick-ups.
