Gehlen Catholic Ball Scheduled For Saturday


(Le Mars) — “Generations of Excellence” is the chosen theme for this year’s Friends of Gehlen Catholic Ball scheduled for Saturday evening at the Le Mars Convention Center. Jeff Arens serves as one of the co-chairs for the annual fundraising
event, and explains the reasons behind the theme.

Arens says the purpose for the Gehlen Ball is to serve as the major fundraiser for the local Catholic school. He details the evening’s activities.

The Gehlen Ball co-chair says following the check presentation, attendees will have the choice of listening to music on two different levels.

As mentioned, the Gehlen Ball is the main fund raiser event for the Gehlen Catholic School. Arens says donations of all amounts are greatly appreciated, and account for nearly ten percent of the school’s budget.

Arens says this year there are several items of interest for the annual silent auction.

Tickets are still available for the Saturday evening Gehlen Ball. A $100 contribution will reserve two tickets for the banquet meal, program, and the entertainment. Arens says tickets can be purchased at the Gehlen school, or from members of the Gehlen Ball committee, or at the door.
