Couples’ Winter Wonderland: A Mystery Dinner & Gala

  • Saturday, Dec 10, 6:30 pm

You’re invited to the Christmas party of the year! Calvary Couples is hosting Winter Wonderland: A Mystery Dinner and Gala. Come dressed in your best red and white attire for an elegant dinner and a night of entertainment.

Saturday, Dec. 10
6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Fellowship Hall 
$40/couple

The mystery takes place around fictional character Betty Crosby (wife of famous football star, Joseph Crosby) who is hosting her annual Christmas Party fundraiser in her home. Celebrities and society elites are vying for an invitation, and you’ve received one. You’ll be a celebrity for the night!

Childcare is $3/child, but no meal will be provided for the children.

Most importantly, Calvary Couples wants to give back—it’s that time of year! Please bring a donation to help the Orphan Care Network Car Kit Project. Car Kits are basic health and comfort items for social workers to keep in their cars for the foster children they are transporting.

You can give in one of three ways:

  1. Bring a complete car kit
  2. Give some of the components needed for a CAR KIT
  3. Donate money for a car kit ($30).

If you have any questions about the car kits, call 630-585-3208 or email us. Donations will be placed under the tree in the atrium as you come into the Christmas Party.
