MASHPEE — The 21st annual FACE Summer Gala to support Catholic school students in the Fall River Diocese is set for Friday, July 13, at the Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee.

With a delicious multi-course dinner, a live auction, a mystery raffle and more, an enjoyable evening for all is planned with proceeds going to FACE, the Foundation to Advance Catholic Education.

FACE provides need-based scholarships to children attending Catholic schools on Cape Cod and throughout the Fall River Diocese.

Boston TV and radio personality Billy Costa, host of NESN’s Dining Playbook, will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the Summer Gala.

Dennis-resident Gillian Lewis Milligan is serving as chairperson for this year’s event.

In his letter of invitation, Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., writes, “This is another great opportunity for the generous people of our beloved Fall River Diocese to come together and demonstrate their love and support for Catholic education.”

He points out that through the generosity of supporters of FACE, the Fall River Diocese “has been able to provide scholarships to many children who would otherwise not be able to attend a Catholic school,” adding that, “the need continues to grow.”

For ticket information or to find out about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jane Robin of the FACE Cape Cod office at 508-759-3566 or Reservations to attend must be made prior to the event. Tickets will not be available at the door.
