Get Your Glamour On – Old Hollywood comes to St. Clement’s
Invite your friends; there is something for everyone

The Glamour of Hollywood is coming to St. Clement’s by-the-Sea on Saturday, November 4 for a food/music/silent auction extravaganza.  This is the major parish fundraiser of the year, and we expect a large crowd of glamorous party guests.

Appetizers and dinner will
 be once again by Rocco’s Restaurant, with parishioners Rocco and Belkis planning another feast for us all to enjoy.  

You won’t want to miss the Hollywood music by Larry Gates and Friends, featuring Larry and Chris LaBarthe as singers plus instrumental accompanists.  Sumptuous desserts will be served during the concert.

Tickets are on 
sale during coffee hour, and at the church office. They are priced at $60 each, with a limited number of front row seats for $80 each for tables of four.  Payment may be by check to “St. Clement’s by-the-Sea” with a note of Nov. 4 Gala, or else by credit card or PayPal.
