Fall Luncheon – October 3, 2020

We’re exploring creative logistical options for the annual Fall Luncheon scheduled for October 3, 2020. Our priority is in making sure guests and volunteers are safe so we’ll continue to monitor the public safety policies and recommendations as the event date nears. We’re optimistic in finding a solution.

18th Annual Evening of Elegance Dinner, February 5, 2021

An Evening of Elegance Dinner and Auction, Saturday, February 1st, 2020

On Saturday, February 1, 2020 the Mother Teresa Maternity Home presented its 17th Annual Dinner and Auction with resounding success. This is the premier event where businesses and community members come together to provide essential funding to ensure the ongoing services offered by the Home. The sold out event of 240 attendees enjoyed a festive atmosphere in an elegantly decorated Gurnell Hall in Placerville.

Fabulous appetizers and dinner were, once again, provided by Master Chef Mike Inks of the Foothill Grill and served by the ROP students from El Dorado area high schools. New this year was an auction table with gourmet cakes as a special silent auction treat in addition to the traditional silent auction. And, back this year by popular demand, guests enjoyed a game of heads-or-tails playing for a $1,000 prize.

Our Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Wendy Thomas who also assisted auctioneer Jack Sweeney during the live auction. Prizes included a Holland America Cruise for two, a one-of-a-kind tour of historic Cielo Ranch in Meyers, premium Celine Dion concert tickets with a night on the Delta King in Old Town Sacramento, a three-night stay in a three-bedroom vacation house in South Lake Tahoe with a private pier and beach access, and game tickets to the Oakland A’s and Sacramento Kings, to mention just a few.

Our “Fund – A- Need,” gave everyone an opportunity to participate in the funding of the much needed Education Fund. This fund will be used to assist our residents who have had their education disrupted by moves, abuse and poverty. The fund will be used to pay for high school and community college courses, testing fees, driver training and licensing fees, uniforms and equipment as needed. One of our goals is to have them leave Mother Teresa Maternity Home as a more educated woman with the skills of a productive member of our community.

We’d like to thank all those involved in making this a memorable night. Sponsors, donors, generous attendees and the volunteers who donated countless hours made the 2020 Evening of Elegance one of the best ever. We couldn’t do it without you. We look forward to seeing you again next year on February 6, 2021!

Annual Fall Luncheon at St. Patrick’s

The 21st annual Fall Luncheon was, once again, a fabulous event! This annual event is a major benefit fundraiser for the home. Themed tables were elaborately decorated and were a big part of the festive environment of the luncheon. This event has become a popular annual tradition in our community.

2019 Golf Tournament at Cameron Park Country Club

For the first time the Knights of Columbus from St. Patrick’s in Placerville joined with the Knights of Columbus from Holy Trinity in El Dorado Hills to jointly hold a golf tournament benefiting the Mother Teresa Maternity Home.

Many thanks to the sponsors, donors, volunteers and golfers for their generous contribution of time, talent and financial support to help make the 17th annual tournament a success.
