Join us for the 2020 Together in Joy Virtual Gala! (Formerly Time of Your Life)

Saturday, November 21 at 7:00pm Central 

We're excited to announce the Together in Joy Gala, St. Teresa of Avila's 12th annual fundraiser. This year's event will be held virtually on Saturday, November 21st at 7:00pm Central. Join us for an hour of celebration, entertainment, and silent & live auction as we come together for our parish and the ministries we serve. The Together in Joy Gala is integral to our continued support of our many outreach efforts from our food pantry to Loaves and Fishes and refugee ministries. Your support has never been more important.

Purchase Tickets

Ticket Options:

Tickets are available for purchase starting at $50/guest registration link. You only need to purchase one $50 ticket per family or viewing party, but you can purchase additional a la carte add-ons such as a bottle of wine, a dessert plate, or a Together in Joy tote bag. Note: You do not need to purchase a virtual event gala ticket to participate in the raffle or auction.

Even though we're not able to be together in-person, we wanted to find a way to share our ministries and bring our community together in celebration. So, we are also offering a "dinner for two" party package featuring a meal prepared by the Loaves and Fishes Ministry and dessert created by St. T's French Community. Quantities are limited so register now!

Special party packages and add-on items will be available for pickup in the Parish Center on Saturday, November 21 between 12:30pm-3:30pm.
