Italian dinner 2014Grace’s High School Youth Group hosted its annual Elegant Italian Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 1. More than 100 members and friends came to Grace Church to enjoy time with friends and support our youth missioners.

The evening began with a social hour and a chance to bid on nearly 50 fabulous silent auction items, including Cardinals baseball tickets, jewelry, personal gardening and lovely artwork.

Our youth members served a delicious dinner, lovingly prepared by our parent chefs. The menu included salad, lasagna and desserts.

This fun and fabulous evening raised more than $5,000 for our youth mission trip. Our sincere gratitude goes to all the generous members and local businesses who supported this event. A special thank you goes to:

  • Organizers: Kathy Davis and Tracy Hart
  • Silent Auction: Paula Russell and Brenda Malottke
  • Kitchen Staff: Kathy Davis, Jim Davis, Sue Nixon, Sabine McDowell and Warren Davis
  • Social Hour: Eric Woodruff and Dennis & Peggy Capriglione
  • Waiter Supervisors: Tom & Jane Petrie

This year’s youth missioners will travel to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, June 1-7 to work with Habitat for Humanity. The trip is open to all high school students (and friends).
