Harvest Gala Letter
Dear St. Demetrios Family,
This has certainly been a year no one could have expected nor planned for. Once again, due to COVID-19 limitations, restrictions and safety of our Church family and Community, we regrettably are forced to cancel our 2021 Harvest Gala Dinner/Dance.
We hope you and your family members are safe and well. We want to thank you for your past support of the St. Demetrios Harvest Gala Dinner/Dance and The St. Dionysios Community Center building project.
Two things happened during this most difficult time. One, our love for St. Demetrios and all of our Church family members grew. It showed us just how connected we are to one another and how much we missed and care for everyone. Secondly, it challenged our Construction Committees and our Capital Campaign Committee on how to continue to work on the building Project and continue to fundraise.
We want to thank all of our attendees, donors, sponsors and supporters who in the past have made our
Gala one of the most successful events of the year.
This year, your Harvest Gala Committee has come up with a way we can still have fun, raise support for the building fund and stay connected. We have three prizes you can be eligible for.
Getaway to a beautiful Napa home for a wonderful weekend stay for you and your family. You are right in the wine tasting Capital of the World.
Weekend pass for two to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. It includes both parks.
Wonderful Bay dinner cruise on the Hornblower yacht in San Francisco.
If you decide you would like to support the Gala/Building fund by making a supporting donation, for each
$100.00 you pay you will receive one ticket chance in a drawing. Once all supporting donations are
received by November 1st, we will hold a drawing via Zoom and award the three wonderful prizes.
There is no limit on the number of tickets you can qualify for and your support donation, will go directly to
the St. Dionysios Building fund.
If you wish to support the Harvest Gala/Building Fund this year, make a pledge, renew an existing pledge please visit the Church website at: stdemetrios.info/give and click the green Give button.
Please mark your calendar for Saturday, October 22, 2022 for our Harvest Gala Dinner/Dance which is in the planning stages. We hope that we can be together to celebrate, break bread, dance hug and laugh with Basil the Greek entertainer who will be your Host and Master of Cérémonies.
