Bon Secours & Catholic Charities —
Working Together to Bring GREAT Help
to Those in Need

On Friday, February 5, 2016, Catholic Charities will host its second annual Mardi Gras celebration at the Westin Town Center Virginia Beach.  Please join us for a great evening of fun — dinner, dancing, game tables and a live auction — all to benefit CCEVA’s programs and services for the poor.  This pre-Lenten celebration allows us to come together to support the important work of Catholic Charities in our community.  This year’s focus will be on our Pregnancy Support Program – offering pregnant women and families with young children free baby supplies, case management & education to ensure a healthier start for children in our community.

Tickets are $100 each and include dinner, dancing and a hosted bar.  Even if you can’t join us, you can still support our efforts!  Raffle tickets are available for $50 each — the First Drawing will be for a one-week stay for 6 in Duck, NC (week of 9/10/16, winner may adjust date off-season), Second Drawing will be for two subscriptions to the Virginia Symphony Orchestra’s Classic 8 series ( winner’s choice of venue – Newport News, Norfolk or Virginia Beach – a $1,000 value), and the Third Drawing will be for a GoPro Hero+ camera.   Please click here to purchase your tickets!

Sponsorships are still available and are a great way to reach business leaders and discerning philanthropists in attendance.  For sponsorship information, please click here: Mardi Gras 2016 Sponsorship, or contact Tracy Fick at (757) 456-2366, ext. 1011.

January can be a tough month for many people.  Let-down from the holidays, coupled with bleak, cold weather often leave people feeling down.  Please visit our blog below to read, “Am I Blue?” written by Kelle Watson, M.A.LPC, CCEVA’s Director of Mental Health Counseling.  The article addresses the difference between having “the blues” temporarily, or whether it is something more and help should be sought.  If you or someone you love would like to talk with a counselor, please call (757) 467-7707.
