Gala to support aid for schools

"The FACE of the Future" is the theme for this year's annual gala to raise funds for Family Aid Catholic Education.

For the 2013-14 year 684 students received FACE grants; 343 students in diocesan elementary and 341 students in high schools. An elementary education FACE grant provides $1,750 in assistance, the grant for secondary education is $3,050.

Three FACE recipients, past and present, will tell their stories in person at the gala. Two current students, an eighth-grader and a high school student, will speak. Guests will also hear from Andy Nguyen. They have heard from him twice before, as an eighth-grader at St. Anthony School in Oakland and as a high school senior at St. Joseph Notre Dame High School.

This time, they will hear from Andy Nguyen, Stanford graduate and first-year student at Harvard Medical School.

The gala, which will begin at 5:30 p.m. May 3, will be at the Blackhawk Automotive Museum, 3700 Blackhawk Circle, Danville. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. The live auction is set to begin at 8:30 p.m., with auctioneer Eric Johnson.

An addition to this year's gala is dancing, with live entertainment by the Motown-inspired, nine-piece band Pure Ecstasy.

Tickets, at $150 per person, are available at www.faceofoakland.org. Additional information is available by dialing 510-628-2155 or email skoehl@oakdiocese.org. Online registration is available through April 12.
