CHICOPEE – Pope Francis High School will host “Spirit of the Season,” an evening of holiday music, hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and silent and live auctions, Thursday, Dec. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The event will be held at the school located at 134 Springfield St., Chicopee.

“This festive evening helps to usher in the Christmas season with an enjoyable night for parents and friends of Pope Francis High School,” said Anne Pellan-Shea, director of alumni relations at the school and organizer of the event. “The evening is a great fundraiser for us, and the entire school community works together to contribute exciting items for guests to bid on.”

Homerooms and faculty groups are creating amazing theme baskets that will be up for bid in the silent auction. Creations include a “Chocolate Lovers Basket”; “Hello Beautiful Spa Basket”; “All things Coffee”; “Christmas in Napa”; “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas”; and “Lottery Card Mania,” to name a few.

Also available during the silent auction are a 55” television, a one-hour photo session with RE Photography of Monson, and a golf foursome at Springfield Country Club.

The event – geared for adults – will also include a live auction during which attendees may bid on a stocked wine cooler, and a week-long getaway at a home in picturesque York, Maine, and more.

“We’ve got something to offer just about everyone on your Christmas gift-giving list this year,” said Pellan-Shea. “We invite you to experience the spirit of the season by sharing an evening of festivities, food and fun.”

Tickets are available now through Dec. 1: $25 each or $40 when purchasing two. A free drink ticket will be given with every ticket purchased. Proceeds from the event will benefit student programs and activities at Pope Francis High School.
