Saturday, Feb. 10, marked the sixteenth annual Lucky Hearts Banquet. The Holy Rosary PTO fundraiser marks a date night each year. The event took place at the Knights of Columbus Hall, as it has in all the years past. Couples in the area enjoyed a nice evening of food, dancing and fun. The theme this year was Hollywood with lights, camera and action and had the red carpet laid out at the entrance. On the tables were simple vases with a rose and rose petals. A picture booth was available for couples to grab selfies with props supporting this year’s theme.
There were 300 tickets available and all were sold at this year’s event. With the purchase of the couple’s ticket, a prime rib dinner was served by PTO Volunteers. The prime rib was prepared by the Ritter Brothers. The ticket put the couple in a drawing at a chance to win money prizes throughout the night of ranging from $150, $200, $250, $300, $500 and $1000 with the last drawing being for the grand prize of $10,000.
