Raffles and Auction Items open online on Saturday January 30.  You will find a split the pot raffle and other raffles, trips within driving distance, IHM School Class Art Projects and auction packages and baskets with donations from local businesses, parishioners, school families and IHM staff.   


Just like in years past, the Gala will continue to benefit the youth of IHM - through the School, the Parish Religion Program and our Youth Ministry programs.  Our Annual Winter Gala theme is Superheroes Among Us and will be honoring the essential teachers & staff at our school.  They have endured so much change and made great efforts this year to support our youth within the IHM community. 


We also want to give a Superhero THANK YOU to our sponsors and our donors, many who are here today.  We can not do the Gala without you!   


You will receive a postcard in the mail in the coming days with these important dates so you can mark your calendars. And you can find more detailed information on IHM’s website on the Winter Gala page and on our Facebook page ‘IHM Winter Gala’.


In closing, we are asking each of you to be a Superhero and help support the youth of IHM! Thank you.
