St. Michael Catholic High School is gearing up for an enchanting evening beneath the stars as it announces the Eighth Annual Cardinals in the Courtyard event. Presented by The Cromeans Foundation and Hendrick Staffing Group International (HSGI) Inc., the soirée, themed "Paint The Town Red," pledges an unforgettable experience spotlighting local artists and their original works of art.
Scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2024, the fundraising gala stands as the school's premier annual fundraising initiative. All proceeds directly support the SMCHS Cardinal Fund, bolstering faculty needs, augmenting financial aid, and fortifying campus security measures. Last year's gala amassed over $150,000 in donations.
The 2024 Cardinals in the Courtyard Gala, slated to commence at 7 p.m., promises an array of gourmet food stations catered by Wolf Bay Lodge. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in an online silent auction and an exclusive live auction featuring coveted items such as a puppy from Smeraglia’s Teddy Bear Goldendoodles, a private dove shoot at Mullek Farms, a diamond pendant from Manning Jewelers, a wine tasting/dinner for four at The Hope Farm, Invisalign treatment by Fairhope Dental Associates and more.
The evening's entertainment will be enriched by a special performance by The Six Piece Suits, Caricatures by Kathy and a display of artworks by renowned local artists available for silent auction purchases during the event.
Ticket sales for the gala will begin on March 1, 2024. A diverse range of sponsorship packages, inclusive of premium seating guarantees, are presently on offer and can be explored on the school's website under the "Support" section at www.stmichaelchs.org or directly at stmichaelchs.org/cardinals-in-the-courtyard-gala. Interested individuals may contact Sponsorship Chairs Ashley Brackin Bonner at firstname.lastname@example.org or Andrea Kaiser Shilston at email@example.com for additional information.
All sponsors are cordially invited to attend a private Mass presided over by Archbishop Rodi, slated to take place on the St. Michael's campus at 5:30 p.m. on the evening of the event. Following the Mass, attendees will be treated to a champagne reception catered by Executive Chef Brody Olive of Perdido Beach Resort.
