Catholic Charities Presents "A Night in Venice"

Posted on January 14, 2016

Catholic Charities invites you to be enchanted with “A Night in Venice” at the Catholic Charities Annual Benefit to be held at the Teutopolis Knights of Columbus on Saturday, January 30, 2016.  The evening will begin with a Cocktail Social at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m.

Catholic Charities is offering you an opportunity to enjoy the evening and make a difference in someone else’s life by becoming a special donor over and above the single ticket price. Your gift will enable others who are less fortunate to share in the blessings you have received. 

All donations and proceeds will be used to help families enjoy the basic necessities of life and enhance their quality of life.

Tickets can be purchased by contacting Catholic Charities at 217-857-1458. Tickets are also available through any Catholic Charities’ Advisory Board member. The price of a single ticket is $40. Contributors who wish to be recognized in the program can donate at the following levels:

Saint Mark’s Basilica    $1500 – 8 tickets & Reserved Table

Doge’s Palace             $1000 - 6 tickets

St. Mark’s Square       $500 – 4 tickets

Grand Canal              $200 – 2 tickets

Raffle tickets will be available that night only.

Catholic Charities will also be presenting the Vineyard Award for 2016 that evening to Joey Trupiano and Manny Trupiano – Joe’s Pizza & Pasta.
