Greetings to all family and friends of Trinity Lutheran Church & School!
This is your invitation to the annual TLS gala and auction on Saturday, March 2, at the Historic Plains Hotel here in Cheyenne!
We’re very excited for this year’s gala— it’s going to be the best one yet! Our Mardis Gras themed evening will start out with a happy hour at 5:00 PM (cash bar) with dinner to follow at 6:00 PM. While it doesn’t fall exactly on Fat Tuesday, March 2 is the last Saturday before Lent, so let’s celebrate Cajun-style before the fast begins! Feel free to come dressed and accessorized in gold, violet, and green! (Child-care will not be provided, so please make arrangements with a sitter for the evening.)
Gala tickets are $40/piece or $400 for a VIP table, which includes eight seats, eight raffle tickets, and two bottles of wine— that’s a great deal! You can purchase tickets in the church & school office, from any TLS teacher, or through our secure online Square™ checkout page (coming soon).
A gala ticket gets you admission to the event, dinner, and access to both the silent and the live auctions!
Come bid on one-of-a-kind items made by TLS students, faculty, and staff as well as some fantastic donated items from friends and sponsors in Cheyenne’s business community! Be on the lookout for classroom auction baskets to start popping up around the school in the next few weeks.
A raffle ticket gets you a chance to win this beautiful custom-engraved Henry lever-action 30/30 rifle!†
This stunning rifle (which comes with a display case) is sure to take its place as the prize piece of any gun collection! The winning ticket-holder need not be present to win. Raffle tickets are $20/piece or 6 for $100.
100% of proceeds from ticket sales, auctions, and event fundraising directly benefits Trinity Lutheran School. Your tax-deductible charitable donations will help fund…
➢ Tuition assistance for families in need
➢ Purchase of books and classroom supplies
➢ Renovation of the school building and playground
This year’s gala will be a fun and relaxing night out for Trinity parents, friends, faculty, staff, and church family, a time for all of us to get together, enjoy one another’s company, and shower some support on our beloved school. The generosity of our TLCS family and friends is what enables our school to keep on doing what we’ve been doing in Cheyenne for the past 126 years: providing an excellent Christ-centered education for the children of our church, our sister congregations, and the broader community. In all of this we try to keep tuition as low as we can without making sacrifices in quality. It’s no overstatement to say that we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you at the gala on Saturday, March 2!
Don’t think you’ll make it to the gala this year but would still like to give a gift to Trinity Lutheran School? You’ll find an option to make a charitable donation on our Square™ page (coming soon).
