150th Anniversary Celebration Dinner FAQ's

FAQ’s for our 150th Anniversary Celebration Dinner
October 13, 2018

Do I need to send my reservation in soon?
YES! Seating is limited to 300 people so please RSVP as soon as you are able.

What is a Sponsorship and why is that being offered?
The Sponsorship level will help the Church offset the cost of the evening.

Is the Sponsorship tax deductible?
The dollar amount above and beyond the total cost of the two tickets ($150) is tax deductible. The Church Finance Office will send you a letter for your tax records.

Is part of the Individual $75 ticket a tax deductible gift to St. Peter’s?
No. The cost of the dinner is $75 and therefore is not a gift.  

Is the Celebration Dinner being underwritten? 
Sponsorships will be the only underwriting of the event. To offset costs, some items are being donated in-kind and within the guidelines of the venue.

Is this a fundraiser?
No. This is an evening to celebrate St. Peter’s 150th Anniversary. We hope you will join us!

What is the attire?
Coat and tie/simple cocktail dress or dressy pants - please wear your church nametag.

Can I bring my family, including children?
Youth that are of high school age and older may attend the Celebration Dinner with their parent(s).

What is the schedule for the evening?
There will be a reception hour at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments, wine, and beer. Weather permitting, the reception will be held outside. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. and there will be a short video presentation.  We think Bishop Curry will want to speak as well. The evening should conclude by 10:00 p.m.

How will seating be done?
Tables will be assigned, but not specific seats at the tables. If you wish to be seated with someone in particular, you may write the name(s) on the back of your RSVP card.

Is this only for the parish? Is the public being invited?
This is not a public event. Seating is limited to 300, so while guests are welcome, we encourage you to be mindful that we are eager to have as many parishioners attend as possible. We will invite the wider community to worship with us at the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday, October 14 - the only worship service that day -  and to hear Bishop Curry preach.
