A Virtual Benefit for the Ministries of Catholic Charities

Beaches & Blessings

Friday, August 21

A virtual event like no other

Join us for an evening of virtual fun and true giving to benefit the ministries of Catholic Charities and the clients we serve.

Pick your beach – either a small, in-home party or a gathering of one on your own Isolation Island – then join us online to be the blessing for the clients Catholic Charities serves by participating in:

  • Auctions of premium designer purses
  • An exclusive Cabana Ticket drawing for a tropical trip
  • Raffles for a collection from Saint by Sarah Jane, a Louis Vuitton bag and a third package with relaxation in mind.
  • Opportunities to bless the hungry, homeless, poor, lonely and abused in our community through your financial support.

Food and Drink

Even though Beaches & Blessings is a virtual event, it is impossible to virtually enjoy food and drink. That is why we have partnered with Georges French Bistro to prepare dinner for all those who purchase tickets. Tickets must be purchased by midnight on Sunday, Aug. 16 to include dinner and drink. Non-meal tickets still available!

Our dinner options include:

ENTREE 1:

Chicken Provencal prepared with tomatoes, white wine, olives and fresh herbs, with shaved summer vegetable salad with orange mint vinaigrette, grilled vegetables with citrus vinaigrette, herb roasted potatoes and glazed fruit pavlova. (Entire meal is gluten-free.) 

ENTREE 2:

Petit Filet with mushrooms, onions, demi or au poivre peppercorn sauce, with shaved summer vegetable salad with orange mint vinaigrette, grilled vegetables with citrus vinaigrette, herb roasted potatoes and chocolate mousse cake. (Meal is gluten-free with the exception of the dessert.) 

Auction

From Prada to Coach to Kate Spade to Vera Bradley with many designers in between, our auction will include 20 new or gently loved designer purses, along with a few other special packages.

Cabana Ticket Winner Chooses One of Two Trips

Our exclusive Cabana Ticket – there will only be 100 sold at $100 each – gives the winner their choice of an all-inclusive tropical beach vacation for two to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands or a virtual wine tasting with a special Tuscany selection of wine for you to enjoy on your own private island at home.

St. Thomas Fun Under the Sun

For two people who love to travel, enjoy the stunning accommodations and beach at St. Thomas for 5 days and 4 nights. This all-inclusive package includes meals and unlimited alcohol, swimming with turtles and fun beach activities!

Sipping Italy at Home

For people who prefer to stay in, enjoy 12 bottles of Italian red wine shipped directly to your door, along with a video presentation and guided wine tasting.

Tickets are limited, so be sure to buy now so you don’t miss out on these incredible packages!

Raffle

Our Beaches & Blessings raffle will feature three items: Jewelry from Saint by Sarah Jane, a Louis Vuitton bag and a third package with relaxation in mind.

Be the blessing for those we serve.

No matter the size of a beach, every single grain of sand is important to that beach. The same can be said for the generous financial support given to Catholic Charities. No gift is too small and every gift, when combined with gifts from others, helps Catholic Charities serve those in our community who are hungry, homeless, poor, lonely and abused.
