Catholic Charities gets out of the box for an evening of fun with proceeds benefitting the community’s most vulnerable
PHOENIX (Sept. 18, 2012) -- It’s definitely not your ordinary rubber-chicken fundraiser. This one has created a stir of interest with promotional pieces that include images of a rubber chicken, a nun and a few special guests “on a mission for God.”
Catholic Charities Community Services hosts Saturday Night aLive on Oct. 6, 6-10 p.m., in Memorial Hall at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix. The evening includes heavy hors d’oeurves, hosted bar and riotous entertainment. Proceeds benefit Catholic Charities programs for our community’s most vulnerable.
“We didn’t want to do an ordinary event,” says Donna Rodgers, development manager at Catholic Charities. “The goal was to do something out-of-the-ordinary and fun that the whole community could enjoy.”
The evening begins with a hosted bar and a variety of heavy hor d’oeuvres including salmon, chipotle flank skewers and pork and mango empanadas. At 7 p.m. sharp everyone will snap in to place or knuckles will be cracked as Sister takes the stage for a special presentation of Late Nite Catechism, along with a few “special guests” and a whole lot of fun. After the performance, last call features a fabulous assortment of bite-sized delectable desserts and raffle drawings with some more “special guests.”
“You truly want won’t want to miss the fun. The event is a wonderful way for the community to come together and help us raise money to fund our programs which provide solutions that permanently improve people’s lives,” adds Rodgers.
Tickets are $100 per person, but a special buy-one, get-one-free promotion continues through Sept. 27 while seats last. For tickets and more information, contact Donna Rodgers at 602.650.4827or email@example.com.
