Are you tired of the news? Life have you down? Ready for a pick-me-up? I have the perfect prescription: the SILENT NIGHT Christmas Gala.
Our friends at Holy Trinity’s Respect Life Group are hosting their 6th annual Christmas Gala this weekend in their event center. They donate the proceeds to Iowans for LIFE.
They raised $1000 for IFL the first year, and it ballooned to $15,000 last year.
A sit-down dinner AND a musical feast!
This is simply one of the most fun and fulfilling events of the year for us. Saturday night features a wine bar and sit-down dinner. As if that’s not enough, it’s followed by a musical feast featuring 6 show-stopping soloists backed by a 20 voice choir, 17 piece orchestra and handbell choir!
One of the highlights of last year’s show was a beautiful rendition of “What Child is This” with a unique blend of instruments, including classical guitar, accordion, clarinet, and cello. Amy Leonard sang it with great passion, backed by a men’s choir. The audience reacted with such fervor that it will be performed again this year.
This song is so fitting for a pro-life Christmas Gala
“What Child is This?” proclaims the magnificence of the Christ child.
It reminds us that we are all children of God, created in His image, under the protection of Christ the King, from fertilization until natural death.
Amy will be back to sing this year, along with her fellow soloists Gina Gedler, Renée Davenport, Craig Ferguson, Katherine Bourne, and Cathy Jordan.
Get ready to experience an evening of beauty at the same time you support Iowans for LIFE.
Shows this Saturday AND Sunday
You have two opportunities to experience this musical feast: this Saturday, December 1st, followed by a Sunday matinee the next day.
The Saturday show goes for $38 per person and includes the dinner and wine bar I mentioned above. Doors open at 5:30PM with dinner at 6 and the show at 7. Reservations required for the Saturday dinner and show.
The Sunday show includes a dessert bar only, and doors open at 1:15PM with the show at 2PM. Sunday tickets are $19 each, and families with kids can get a family ticket for $50. Tickets can be purchased at the door for the Sunday matinee.
This is event is simply beautiful, and it will be even more beautiful if you can be there.
