St. Paul Catholic School is pleased to invite everyone to their third annual gala. Please plan on attending our fabulous  “Reach for the Stars Gala” on Saturday, April 5, 2014 , from 6:00pm to 12:30am. This event, for the benefit of the school, will be held at the New Bern Convention Center. This gorgeous setting, overlooking the Trent River, is located at 203 South Front Street, New Bern, with ample free parking.  Appetizers will start off this dining feast. The Chelsea will present a gourmet dinner. You will have a choice of Beef Tenderloin Shoulder, Chicken Bruchetta or Baked Salmon for your dining pleasure. To end the dinner a scrumptious dessert will be served. A full cash bar will be available all evening.

To highlight this affair, we are honored to have Anna Bulszewicz News Anchor for News Channel 12 This Morning/Noon, as Master of Ceremony. As vivacious as Anna is, we hope this will be an evening to remember.

Music will be provided by the well known “Shake Doctors.” This 5 piece band has been well received in the many places they have played throughout the area. They will play a variety of music for your dancing or listening pleasure.

Put on your “fancy” clothes (black tie optional), your dancing shoes and enjoy an incredible night to remember. What a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of Spring!
