St. Mary's Parish is hosting a special fall social event open to the public with A Touch of Broadway's new fall show. Sunday, Oct. 22, at 5 p.m. at the Buena Vista University Forum. Tickets are only $15 per person.
The evening will include a social hour with cash bar, sit-down multicourse dinner and entertainment by A Touch of Broadway. This event is open to the public. Seating is limited. St. Mary's High School speech students will also provide entertainment during the meal.
Tickets are available at the St. Mary's Parish Office, 320 Seneca St., or by calling the parish office at 732-3110.
This event came out of a desire of the St. Mary's Development Board to provide a purely social event for St. Mary's parish and the community at large. For those who may find the journey from the BVU parking lot to the forum to be a physical challenge, please contact the forum office at 749-2400 to reserve a ride in their covered gem car.
