Legacy Gala

Save your formal wear for another occasion. Join us "virtually" as this year's gala takes place in the comfort of your own home!

In the spirit of community and safety, Bishop Guertin has made the difficult decision to transition the 23rd Annual Legacy Gala and Dinner Auction to an online auction event. Just like our Cardinals have seized their move to a “Virtual Nest,” we are excited that this change has presented us an opportunity to help pay it forward. 

All the money raised from The Nest Best Thing: Do Your Part With A Cardinal Heart will go directly to emergency financial assistance for our current families that have been affected by COVID-19. In addition, we are pledging a percentage of the money raised to End 68 Hours of Hunger Nashua, a non-profit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school Friday and the free breakfast they receive in school Monday, as well as vendors who would normally have helped us with our Gala.

You do not need to purchase a ticket to take part in the online auction. However, you can make a donation by purchasing a “ticket” or “table.” If you have already purchased a ticket to the Gala or the Baubles and Gems raffle, we are offering refunds. However, we hope you might consider donating the funds in support of this effort and our community. 
 
Stay tuned for additional details about The Nest Best Thing in the coming days. We are also still accepting donations for our auction. For more information on themes and ideas, please see below.
