Lend your light for the school fundraiser

Do you have glass votive candle holders, vases or hurricane lamps you'd be willing to donate for just one evening?

St. Raphael Catholic School needs these items for its Hot Havana Nights fundraiser in February. If you're willing to help, please send an e-mail to Anne Smith at

The gala event on Friday, February 25 will recreate the 1950s era of the Cuban capital's fabulous nightclubs and tropical splendor.

The event will be held at the restored 1926 Mirror Lake Lyceum in downtown St. Petersburg, courtesy of parishioners Cort and Sharon Taylor. The Mediterranean revival showplace features magnificent chandeliers, crystal and alabaster ornamentation and beautiful hardwood floors.

This is the school's largest fundraiser of the year. Individual tickets are $55 each, including dinner, beer and wine. A $130 Cuban Special package deal is available until January 28 and includes two tickets to the auction and a Poor Man's Raffle ticket.

The event has a Facebook event page and a Web site. Check each of them for more information about the fundraiser as it becomes available. The sites will be updated continually.
