10th Annual Star Struck Gala & Silent Auction

Coming to America!

August 29, 2020

St. Francis Center for Renewal    is excited to celebrate the heritage and history of the School Sisters of St. Francis in America at Monocacy Manor. On August 29, we will gather virtually to honor a ministry that began in Europe and was brought to our shores over 100 years ago.
In keeping with our Gala traditions, the Center is once again delighted to ‘shine our light’ on the event’s honorees: Joe & Shirley Knecht Hixson, NIna Marie Corona – 2020 Woman of Strength and +Anthony Myers – the 2020 Troubadour of Light recipient.
We also celebrate with gratitude the dedication and ministry of Sr. Anita Kuchera and Sr. Barbara DeStefano. Through their stewardship and love, St. Francis Center for Renewal has been a place of prayer, inspiration and healing for thousands of people from the Lehigh Valley and beyond, for over 70 years!
We hope that you will join us in this celebration of our history and our future. We are sure that you will enjoy the wonderful program that we have lovingly prepared for you.
Through the generosity of many, the Star Struck Online Auction holds well over a hundred amazing items for you to bid on. All proceeds from the Auction will support the Center…at a time when there is great need.
To take part in the festivities, you will need to register. Following the link below, you will be prompted to ‘create an account.’ Once you are registered, you will receive emails/texts from us with updates on the event. You will be able to bid at the Auction, once it opens. You will also be given the option to donate to the Center, at a time when there is a crucial need, but also some inspiring plans for our future.
Throughout Gala Week, the celebration begins with special emails celebrating our honorees. Once registered you can take a sneak peek at the Auction items and pick out your favorites. Bidding will open August 24.
Importantly, just prior to the ‘live event’ on August 29, you will also receive the link to take part in the Gala program.

We look forward to your joining us for our 10th Annual Star Struck Gala. Let the celebration begin!!                                                                                                                                                                  

Admission is free of charge!
