Annual Dinner Dance and Fund Raiser for St. Francis Seraph | Saturday 10 February | 6:30 pm-11:30 pm


Reservations are required for this event.

Want to enjoy a great meal and great music with great friends while helping to support an incredibly worthy cause? Then the Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society invites you to our Annual Dinner Dance on Saturday, February 10, 2018, from 6:30 until 11:30 (reservations are required).

This popular event is partnering for a fourth year with St. Francis Seraph, one of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s 8 Inner City Schools that are focused on helping low income families give their children, regardless of religious affiliation, a strong education in order to help break the cycle of poverty.

This year’s fundraiser is titled “Let’s Fill the Bus”. The school estimates that it costs $10 per child for one field trip. In a community in which 91%+ of the families are at or below the federal poverty line, there are limited dollars available for school sponsored field trips. So what happens? The school typically forgoes field trips and the benefits that these out of school experiences can have. Our goal is to raise $1000, enough money to send each child in grades 5-8 on one field trip. Over the past 3 years, we have raised OVER $3,100.

So how can our guests help? While donations of any amount are welcome, donate $5 or more at the door and receive a free drink ticket, good for one draft beer or soft drink. In addition, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 VISA gift card that will be held that night.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND this year for your after dinner dancing enjoyment is Paloma, one of Chicago’s most popular German bands. You gotta see this band!!

The cost of the dinner and the dance (including an open wine bar during dinner) is $20. Dance only is $10.

So get with your favorite Valentine, find a few friends, and join us for a wonderful evening of food, friends, dancing as well as a unique opportunity to help St. Francis Seraph.

Remember, due to our new round table setup in the main hall, we can only accommodate 10 people per table. And we can only take the first 325 reservations.

A big Thank You to the Dinner Dance committee and St. Francis Seraph! Without these group of volunteers, this event would not be possible.

Reservations must be received no later than 6 February 2018.
