Gala Roses 2Over 250 people attended our “All in for St. Al’s Gala” on Saturday that honored the 175th anniversary of our parish and 125th anniversary of our school. 

A delicious dinner at The Ballroom at Rivers Casino was followed by a live auction during which a golf outing with Father Kevin sold for $1,000. A lunch with baseball great Bill Mazeroski, during which Maz signs a special bottle of wine, sold for $2,500. 

Throughout the evening, gala attendees bid on silent auction items, raising thousands of dollars for our parish and school. 

KDKA Chief Meteorologist Jeff Verszyla emceed the event. 

Many thanks go to all of the volunteers who helped make the event a beautiful success, especially Gala Chair Tara Aiello. 

We’ll have more details about the gala in future website posts.
