Taste of Italy


The first event will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014: "A Taste of Italy" to benefit of Saint John Catholic School. Visit many of Italy's distinct provinces by sampling food and wine pairings from the most popular regions of Italy, prepared by Celia's of Charleston. The evening will be held on campus in a beautifully decorated tent from 6:30 – 10 pm. Complimentary child care will be offered for our guests in the school building during the event.

Several exciting prize packages (all worth over $1,000!) will be available for attendees who enter the "How Charming" contest, including:

Getaway Package
Wine & Beer Package
Dinner Dates Package
Geek Package 

This is the only event of the weekend that will have a cost to attend. Tickets will be $65 iin advance / $75 at the door for the public. Childcare in the school building will be included in the cost of the tickets (please RSVP with the school office). Please invite your friends and family and help sell tickets if you can!

We will have a more family-oriented celebration on Saturday, April 26th (10am-3pm). It will be a Carnival theme, which will include a silent auction/tag sale. Items donated that are not used for the Friday night “Themed” prizes will be used for the silent auction and tag sale at this event. We will be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers and playing carnival games! There will be no cost to attend this event, including for food, but advance reservations are required in order to help plan how much food will be needed.

There will be other activities during the weekend (a social and dance on Saturday night, 6:30pm - 10pm, and a BBQ brunch immediately following 11am Mass on Sunday), but we are hoping that you will begin thinking of things you might be able to find / solicit as donations that may fit one of the themes we hope to offer. 

Thanks so much for helping our little school with your ideas, enthusiasm and efforts!
