Gala musicA night to honor Catholic Charities champions at

a great St. Patrick’s party!

We needed a great event to honor those to have gone above and beyond to help Catholic Charities, Diocese of Des Moines. So, in 2015, we put together our St. Patrick’s Gala as a celebration where fun and fundraising were the centerpiece of the evening. A wonderful dinner and honors ceremony, with a party in the pub with an Irish band before and after!2018 Gala 51 copy
