Come one, come all for an evening of awe and wonder under the big top! This year’s St. Francis Gala is set to provide a night of spectacular fun, food and friends.

Social hour  -  6 p.m. with cash bar, hors d’oeuvres and live music

Dinner  -  7 p.m.

“This is going to be such a fun theme for our guests,” said Megan Jennings, Development Officer for St. Francis Hospital Foundation. “We’ve incorporated things like aerial performances, carnival games, and festive eats into the evening to really highlight our cause.” 

A silent auction with mobile bidding will run throughout the evening, as well as an exciting live auction after dinner for a variety of valuable items and experiences. 

In addition to the auctions, a raffle for a seven-night Alaskan Cruise is also being held. Tickets are $30, or four for $100, and can be purchased in advance of the gala.

All proceeds will go toward the new SSM Health Preschool & Child Care Center.

The new facility will allow for the expansion of our services to meet the demand for early childcare needs in the community. The new space will double current capacity, and allow us to serve 136 children in a safe and spacious environment that is conducive to learning and growing. 

A sliding scale for tuition will allow every family the opportunity to receive quality childcare. This project, in its entirety, encompasses everything we believe in and value as an organization, and it most certainly follows the words of our founding sister, “All are God’s Children.”
