The St. Paul School “Once Upon a Time Gala was held on March 3, 2018 in the Grande Ballroom at the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort. The storybook theme was noticeable as soon as you arrived and the beautiful centerpieces helped bring the theme to life. The event was attended by 210 family and friends of St. Paul School who helped bring in over $25,000 for the school’s operating budget!
The Family Traditions Award was given out for the fifth year. This year the honorees were Mrs. Veronica Kobulnicky and Mrs. Andrea Vrtar for their longstanding support they have provided to St. Paul School. They each received a lovely decorative Celtic cross. Mr. Gregory Kobulnicky and Ms. Christine Vrtar did the introductions for their mothers.
Newbrough’s Photo was on hand to document the evening. They captured some wonderful images throughout the evening. Attendees enjoyed a dinner of either prime rib or drunken chicken, garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. After dinner was finished and the Family Traditions Award was handed out everyone got to enjoy the music of The Original Fantasys who performed until the end of the event. The $1,000 prize was won by Mrs. Donna Bohach, who generously donated the money back to St. Paul School!
Thanks to generous donations from St. Paul School families, friends and businesses the Gala was able to have over 90 items available for the Chinese, Silent, and Live auction! Mr. Spencer Thomas offered his auction computer program and it greatly eased the auction preparation and process.
