Our Mother’s Day Gala is coming soon!
–  Saturday, May 7.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, dinner served at 6 pm.

The Mother’s Day Gala will be here before you know it!  It’s time to get your tickets (invite some friends to join you), and to start thinking about what you can donate to the silent auction.  Tickets will be available starting Sunday, April 17.

Here are some ideas:  babysitting, gardening/landscaping services, house cleaning, lessons – skiing/snowboarding/GPS, painting/decorating services, cake decorating class, pet walking, personal chef service for the evening, personal chauffeur for the day/week, kayaking day out, golfing day, gift certificates for stores and restaurants, jewelry, painting/sculpture by a local artist, basket of food from a local farm, gift baskets, concert tickets, theatre tickets, museum tickets, lunch with a local celebrity (e.g. local news anchor, newspaper VIP, an interesting person), designer handbag, private concert by local band or artist … there are so many ways you can contribute*.  Whether buying tickets to attend, or donating Silent Auction items, or both, your support is so appreciated by St. Andrew’s!

*And, as many of you were looking forward to this, here are the 2016 details of the Family Getaway, a popular auction donation:

This is a 7-day Family Getaway at an RCI Gold Crown Resort at Columbia Falls Montana (only a 6-hour drive south from Cochrane).  The successful bidder will stay at a spacious Condo which sleeps up to 6 people, has 2-bedrooms, 2-bathrooms, full kitchen, private deck with BBQ, washer & drier, and covered parking.  There are many amenities both onsite and nearby, such as swimming, golfing, skiing, hiking, rafting, dining and shopping.  Because of the value, these items must be offered with a “Minimum” or “Reserve” Bid.  The “Minimum Bid” will be $1200 per week, but they normally rent for up to $2450 ($350 per day).  There are 4 separate weeks to choose from:  

1. Prime Summer Week –– July 23 to July 30, 2016
2. Autumn Week –– October 1 to October 8, 2016
3. Pre-Christmas Week –– December 10 to December 17, 2016
