CHS Auction, Bear FŒte, Preparations Under Way

The CHS Auction, Bear FŒte, scheduled for March 9, 2013 promises to be a successful fellowship and fundraising event. The evening will include food, cocktails, live entertainment, both silent and live auctions along with raffles for a custom designed cocktail ring and a luxury car. A Champagne Raffle for a 2 carat London Blue, Emerald-cut Topaz ring set in 14kt white gold surrounded by 1.15carats of diamonds valued at $4,500 is being made possible thanks to the generous donation of Wayne and Alice Madere of Jules Madere Creative Jewelers.

One lucky CHS Car Raffle winner will drive away with either a 2013 Toyota Camry or their choice of a 2013 Lexus RX or ES lease generously sponsored by Price LeBlanc Toyota/Lexus. Our CHS boys and parents have already helped to sell a total of $9,362 in tickets! Look for Car Raffle Sales before and after all Masses at St. Thomas More November 17 and 18.
