Annual Dinner & Auction

Black and Gold Gala Postponed
Given that major conventions and celebrations continue to be canceled in the area, and with the suggestions from the federal government that large gatherings be postponed, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the gala, likely to the fall.

Our decision was arrived at after careful deliberation and consultation. We believe it is in the best interest of our families, guests, and overall PVI community.

Thank you to all of our generous sponsors, ticket holders and donors. A special thank you to our many volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the last several months to offer you what was sure to have been a memorable event. We look forward to celebrating with you soon, as we consult on options for a future date.

We will be in touch with more details as they become available. In the meantime, we direct you to the FAQs listed below.

Respectfully,
Paul VI Advancement Office and Auction Committee

The balance of silent auction items will be used for the gala on the new date. We will be in touch with more information.
