San Lorenzo Seminary and Foundation to Hold 20th Annual Dinner Auction

Posted: Sunday, August 15, 2004

By: Submitted by Jim Patin (Expired article)

Santa Ynez, CA -

Saturday, September 11 Event Features Auctions and Maui Trip for Two Raffle.

Continuing with the successful theme event started last year, the San Lorenzo Seminary and Foundation invite you to join us for "An Evening in Madrid". Old Mission Santa Inés has been selected as the site for this year’s fantastic fundraiser. With the Mission celebrating its bicentennial this year, the San Lorenzo Seminary and Foundation felt it appropriate to be a part of this celebration at Old Mission Santa Inés.

The ambiance of Madrid, Spain will fill your senses. The silent auction will precede the dinner and live auction. All proceeds from the event will benefit San Lorenzo in its continuing efforts to provide a retreat haven for groups and individuals seeking peace and solitude. This is the ONLY fundraiser for San Lorenzo this year!

We are very fortunate, again, to have a luxury Hawaiian trip raffle – a 7-night stay at Maui’s beautiful Royal Lahaina Resort for two, including roundtrip airfare and a $500 gift certificate for use at the resort, as the first prize. A second prize is also being offered. It is for $500 cash. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20 (winner need not be present).

Both a silent and live auction will highlight the evening. Many wonderful items will be available featuring trips, numerous stays at premiere hotels throughout the western states, paintings by local artists, and an exceptional selection of wines. Dozens of additional auction items include gift certificates from local merchants, specialty gift baskets, and many more special items.

Entertainment will be provided for your enjoyment throughout the evening.

San Lorenzo Seminary is a prayer and retreat center located on 28 peaceful acres nestled in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Valley. It was founded in 1963 as a Novitiate for the Capuchin Franciscan Friars of the Western Province. The seminary, today, serves as a spiritual retreat center for non-denominational recovery programs and groups, as well as clergy and laypersons. The priests and brothers dedicate their lives and work to the local and extended communities of the central coast. The seminary has served southern and central California as a retreat center for over 20 years.

The San Lorenzo Foundation's purpose is to assist in providing funds for the seminary so they can continue their work and for maintenance and capital improvements to the retreat center which is over 40 years old.
