18th Annual Holy Family Gala 

Concorde Banquets

20922 N Rand Rd. 
Kildeer, IL 60047

Doors open at 6pm

The Holy Family Gala is the largest fundraiser for the Holy Family Catholic Community.  Benefitting both the parish and the Academy, this 1970s themed fundraiser will feature exciting silent and live auction items as well as other chances to win fantastic prizes through raffles, including the new “Get Lucky Lottery” and the traditional “Heaven and Hell” game of luck.  In addition to cocktails and dinner, guests will enjoy good vibes while they get down under disco lights and jams courtesy of DJ Speed!  And, of course, it would not be a Holy Family Gala without special surprise entertainment in keeping with the theme!  

Interested in a VIP ‘70s experience? When purchasing your tickets, upgrade to a VIP Theme Table hosted by Fr. Terry (Saturday Night Fever), Fr. Rich (M.A.S.H.), and Mrs. O’Brien (Charlie’s Angels).

NOTE: There will be no physical tickets issued. All guest names will be held at the door.

 Interested in a hotel room for the evening?
Book at a special Gala rate at the Hampton Inn & Suites Chicago Deer Park.



What To Wear

Ready to get your groove on?  All party people are encouraged to feather their locks, shine their platform shoes, and don threads that would have turned heads at Studio 54. While cocktail or semi-formal attire suggested, guests in the mood for a more casual 1970s inspired outfit that pays homage to a favorite character or rockstar from the decade should go ahead and rock those looks even if they include denim bell bottoms and sneakers…did someone say roller skates!


The Holy Family Gala is an annual event that aims to not only build community, but also raise funds to continue the incredible work of our ministries and school.

Among other initiatives, past Galas have supported the following:

•Upgrade our technology on our campus through increased WiFi coverage and capacity, upgrade the video in the church to HD, upgrade the AV capabilities in meeting rooms, and replace failing servers

•Limit the Academy tuition increase to allow Catholic faith based education to be available to a broader base

•Provide subsidies to our Beloved retreatants to allow all who want to attend this life-changing retreat an opportunity to do so

•Making our pre-school Adam’s Apple program an affordable entry into our FAITH program

•Provide additional athletic equipment in our gym to support after school activities.

•Provide inspirational speakers to our parish and Academy children, our future faith leaders in our teen programs, and our adult education programs

•Provide much needed upgraded equipment for the kitchen used by many ministries and the school

•Provide new furniture for the Academy classrooms
