Hello, everybody – This is an extra e-mail to let everybody know about South Church’s annual gala, which will be held on Saturday, November 21 at 6:00 in South Church’s fellowship hall. It costs $125 a ticket, or $100 if you have a table of ten. The money this year will go to support South’s justice ministries, including our Pantry as well as the Midnight Run, Roots & Wings, Cluster (helping at-risk youth in Yonkers), and our various LGBTQ efforts.
The price of your ticket will get you access to a silent auction (while sipping wine and eating hors d’oeuvres), followed by a sumptuous meal created by our own professional chef, Peter Brenner. After dinner we go into the sanctuary for an evening of music provided by some of South’s own professional classical musicians and their friends and co-workers. One member of South is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and she has lots of friends. The music every year is superb. Then back into fellowship hall for dessert. So, for the evening fellowship hall is transformed into a luxurious restaurant and the sanctuary becomes a concert hall. And all for a good cause!
I’m sending this to you because you’re all supporters of the Pantry, which means charitable causes are important to you. This is a chance to have a wonderful evening without having to travel into the city, knowing that the money you spend will help a lot of needy people. If you’re interested in attending and would like to buy a ticket, please either call the church at 693-4073.
