All you need to know about
Emmaus' 11th Annual Gala!
Texas Two-Step Gala
Saturday, March 2, 2019
Emmaus' Great Hall, 6:00 PM
What is the same this year?
All of Emmaus and the Lakeway community are invited. Just dress your Texas best and be ready to enjoy!
Same buffet style and same caterer as last year - yum! We will be eating all things Texas this time, which you know means BBQ! So, we got the Ministers of Meat on the hook with their smoker and spices to make that delicious!
- yup! Gifts and opportunities available!
Beer & Wine
- yup again! Thanks to our wine sponsors: Mary Ann & Andrew Heller!
What is new and different this year?
Tickets for the raffle baskets (10 of them baskets!) will be sold after all Masses the weekend before Gala, too! Winners pulled at the Gala.
Texas Two-Step Dance lessons
We got a pro lined-up to tell us which two feet to use for the Two-Step (^_^)
It is a surprise, but it rhymes with "Full Hiding"
No Fund-A-Need - No Casino - No Live Auction
What is the Ticket Cost?
We lowered the price!
Go online and get your tickets! Price is just $50 per person now through February 10. On February 11 the per person price goes to $75 each. A reserved table for eight is $600 and this guarantees that you will be seated together. $700 if you don't wanna sit anywhere near 'em.

Can I Sponsor?
Just like the ticket price, the sponsor cost has come down also!
To be a
that's gonna be $1000. AND you get to pick your Texas college or university for the theme for your table of eight. Are there more Aggies or Longhorns or Masked Riders here at Emmaus? We will know on March 2!!

What Can I do to Help?
Wine - we need wine!
Our wine pull at Gala 2018 made over $1000 - thank you Emmaus parishioners! We are hoping for the same this year so we are seeking a total of 40 bottles of wine valued at $15 and above per bottle. Please bring to the parish office.
Raffle Basket donations

Silent Auction donations
We are actively seeking items for the SA.
Do you have a business that can donate a gift card or service? You get some advertising!
Do you have a condo on the beach? Can you donate a two-night stay?
