(Le Mars) — Saturday evening, beginning at 7:00 p.m. will be the Gehlen Catholic Ball, however, with concerns with COVID, this year’s event will be held virtually on-line. Amy Jungers serves as the Development Director for Gehlen Catholic and says the evening will actually begin with a barbecue meal from the Iowa B-B-Q.
Serving of the meal will be between 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. People with tickets are given a half-hour window to pick up their meals, and to help space out the serving of the meals. Jungers says meal tickets are priced at $125 which is good for two meals. The online portion of the Gehlen Ball will name the Peter Gehlen Spirit Award recipient. Jungers says this year there will be two people named to make up from last year when the Gehlen Ball was cancelled due to the COVID virus.
As with every Gehlen Ball there is a fund raising auction, which according to Jungers has already begun.
The Gehlen Catholic Development Director says this year’s auction features many unique and interesting items to be sold.
This year’s Ball marks the 34th time for the Gehlen Catholic Fund Raising Ball.
