2019 Ceili Award Gala
honoring Donna Axton
Friday, September 13, 6:00 pm
The Chateau, Incline Village
From this year forward, the Ceili Award will spotlight a community member who unifies and uplifts the people of North Tahoe/Truckee.
A community honor. “The Ceili” (Kay-lee) is named for a traditional Irish social gathering that weaves a community together through dance, music, and song. How right that our first “community weaver” should be a premier musician! As St. Patrick’s Music Director, Ms. Axton unifies our worship with spirit and song; as Music Program Chair at Sierra Nevada College, she builds community through education and joyful performances. With music as her voice, she brings us together in countless local productions, including TOCCATA. For this work and Donna’s generous spirit, we extend this high recognition as a sign of parish appreciation and broad community support.
A Celtic fling! As you celebrate Donna, you’ll also join Lake Tahoe partygoers in a true Ceili experience. Enjoy a memorable Emerald Isle evening with fine dining and wine, Celtic musicians, and the chance to try traditional Irish dances with a caller. We encourage you to bring your friends to this elegant “Celtic Black Tie” event (kilts encouraged!) that promises to be lots of fun. All funds raised from the gala and a range of attractive auction items will benefit the charitable work of St. Patrick’s, as we strengthen our community through life-changing outreach to those In need.
A chance to make a difference. We hope you consider sponsoring this event as a way to support this new tradition of recognizing outstanding individuals in our community. Please join us: this will be a night to remember!
