Masquerade Ball - Gala 2018


  • As you hopefully saw at Night at the Races, there was a lot of creativity and excitement around the wonderful Class Baskets that were part of the silent auction. The silent auction brings in much the  funds needed to reach our fundraising goal, and the Class Baskets are a big part of that.


  • We need one or two volunteers for each grade to manage the Class Basket for this event.  Please let Kim Pasti know if you're able to volunteer to lead your Class Basket.  Kim can be reached at bmpasti@yahoo.com.


(Next year's grade... because the event is in the Fall of 2018)

Grade K:

Grade 1:

Grade 2:

Grade 3:

Grade 4:

Grade 5:

Grade 6:

Grade 7:

Grade 8: Shannon Anderson


A few questions that might come to mind:

  • When do we need to do this? Because the event is early in the fall, just as we get back to school, we're asking for the volunteers to coordinate the majority of the effort this school year, before we break for the summer.


  • Is there one basket or two per grade?  There should be only one basket per grade. (because the kids will be mixed up across the two classrooms again next fall.)


  • Is there a goal?  Each grade should be responsible for putting together a basket or baskets that total no less than $500 in retail value.


  • When is the basket actually due? The Gala is on October 6, so we'll need the physical basket put together no later than the week before. However, by July 1st we will need at least 2-3 sentences describing the basket with some detail. This description will be included in the program book and the online bidding app. This should be written so that it entices someone to want to bid on your Class Basket(s)!


  • What types of things are you expecting in the basket? Put together a theme basket that YOU would want to bid on. The sky's the limit.  You can reference some of the more popular baskets from the Night at the Races for ideas -- or Let Kim Pasti know if you need inspiration or have questions about what might work. If you're able to get things made, donated or sponsored that can enhance the basket in any way, then go for it.  


  • Who else is working on this? Please let Kim Pasti (bmpasti@yahoo.com) know if you're able to volunteer to manage the Class Basket for your grade. Kim will put together a distribution list to answer questions and bounce ideas around!


Please let Kim Pasti (bmpasti@yahoo.com) know if you any questions. She will be there to help along the way. We can't tell you how much this effort is truly appreciated!

Dads’ Night Out:

Attention Dads:

  • The 2018 Gala Committee will be be hosting an informal meet up at Avon Brewing Company (37040 Detroit Rd, Avon) on Thursday, March 15 at 7:00. This is a good opportunity to meet some new guys at the school, catch up with old buddies or to just get out of the house for an hour or so.
  • This will also serve as an opportunity to do some fundraising for the 2018 Gala. Please bring a gift card of any kind and denomination. If you forget, no big deal, Avon Brewing Company will be happy to sell gift cards to the group.
  • If you have any questions (or need any good excuses to get out of the house), please contact Greg Kutsko or Brock Massullo.

Attention Moms:

  • Please consider this your husband's "Hall Pass" for the night. It's a school thing. They are doing it to help the kids.

We need your help to be successful.

  • Gala Sponsorships and Advertising are available. Click here to learn more about how to reach the Holy Trinity and Avon community with sponsorships and advertising: Gala Sponsorship and Advertising Form

  • The Silent Auction helps bring in a large part of the needed funds raised at the Gala, through generous donations of creative and coveted items. We are kindly asking each Holy Trinity family to help out with an auction item donation of a product or service either personally or from your business. All donations are tax deductible. We’ve set up an Amazon Wishlist to make purchasing and delivering an item very easy. Donation ideas and forms can be found here: Gala Silent Auction Form
