This year the theme was "I Could Have Danced All Night - Masquerade Ball," and the event was held at the Falls Event Center in Littleton. Attendance was good, including Bishop Sheridan, Father Marek Krol, Father Greg Bierbaum, Deacon Thomas Sandusky, and many Parish and Finance Council members, as well as other prominent parishioners. It was a wonderful evening, and our school and children benefited.
