In October, the Catholic Charities Gainesville regional offices was thrilled to bring back the Spirit of Charity Gala. Board Members and the incredibly talented decorating committee transformed the venue (Oak Lane Weddings & Events) into a 1920’s Speakeasy. Guests came dressed in their finest Gatsby style. We were honored by the overwhelming support from all of our sponsors! Our guests had the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of auction items including two baseball lovers dream trips to Boston (courtesy of Dunkin Donuts) and New York City (courtesy of the New York Yankees). 1st class airfare to both cities was provided by Southeast Car Agency & the John Cousins family! University Air and the Lukowski family generously donated a private jet trip to Key West and a boat tour. Pictures of the event are available on the Gainesville Facebook page.
