The Mothers’ Guild of Xavier College Preparatory will host its 43rd Annual Holiday Gala and Auction at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, on Xavier’s campus.

This year’s theme is “Believe . . . A Night to Hear the Magic,” based upon The Polar Express children’s book classic, and the event will be chaired by Xavier parents Joni Oltrogge and Christina Whittle, according to a press release.

Originally a holiday craft boutique that debuted in 1972, the evening now features both silent and live auctions, an elegant dinner, music, and other entertainment.

All proceeds raised will benefit Xavier’s Legacy of Leadership Capital Campaign, which continues to fund Xavier’s Chapel of Our Lady, Founders Hall, Petznick Field, and Activity Center renovation.

For more information or to purchase tickets, please contact Bobbi Holcomb at 602-240-3147 or bholcomb@xcp.org or visit the Xavier Mothers’ Guild website at www.xcpmg.org
