Mother’s Day Gala 2017

Wow! That was fun! Our SOLD OUT! Mother’s Day Gala was held on
Saturday, May 13 …

This Gala is the time of year when the men of St. Andrew’s put on a special evening to honour all the women in our lives, not just our Mothers. The men did the grocery shopping, the cooking, the room preparation, the serving, the dishes, the clean-up, and of course the Silent Auction and the entertainment, with all the men doing their best to help provide a wonderful evening for the ladies to enjoy.

The Chefs Extraordinaire were Don, Bill, & Bob. Led by the Head Server Fred, the servers were all decked out in their black & whites, and attended the ladies throughout the meal. Following dinner, the entertainment began, featuring a variety of musicians, all from St. Andrew’s. We enjoyed listening to David (piano), Will (fiddle) and his dad Brad (guitar), Yaldi (Bob, Fred, & Edith; all vocals, with guitar, violin, & flute respectively), the Back Row Boys barbershop (Steve, Fred, Bob, & Ray), Martin (classical guitar), and 4Good (Bob, Jason, & Ray, all vocals & guitars), and finishing up with our inimitable Men’s Chorus.

The contributions to the Silent Auction were many, and the generous support of the bidders was so appreciated.

Thank you so much to all who made this event such a great success – the ticket purchasers, the auction bidders and contributors, and all the men who volunteered.
