St. Anne Catholic Church in Florence to host ‘An Enchanted Evening’

October 13, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. – St. Anne Catholic Church will host a gala later this month to help fund facility improvements.

“An Enchanted Evening” is scheduled for Oct. 27 at the Florence County Club and will feature a cocktail hour, dinner, music and auctions.

Proceeds from the event will go toward a new church hall.

“Our church distributes 125 bags of food every week to people that need that in the Florence area, so about 6,000 bags a year,” said Tina Kubilius, a member of the church’s fundraising committee. She said the improvements will “provide that outreach to them and will give us some handicap access.”

Many ministries at the church provide help to charitable organizations such as Lighthouse Ministries and A Choice 2 M8K Pregnancy Resource Center.

Kubilius said the gala is not just about helping St. Anne grow, but about helping to grow its community outreach.

The gala will happen right around Halloween and will be “a little bit” enchanted, Kubilius said. The parish named the gala “An Enchanted Evening” because it spoke to the quality of the event.

“It’s going to be an upscale, very nice gala fundraiser,” she said.

Felonious Funk will provide music at the gala. The band features former members of The Woodys.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Kubilius said. “And all the proceeds will go to a great cause to help the members of our community, help Florence to be a better place to be (and) to live.”

Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased at stannecatholicparish.com/anEnchantedEvening. Tickets are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

Guests must be 21 or older.

The Florence County Club is at 450 Country Club Blvd.
