What’s a “Great Gathering”?
Short answer: It’s a gathering that’s great!
Slightly longer answer: Two or three couples join forces and pay for a party as a donation to the school, then Bloom sells tickets to it. The ticket money goes to the school, and hosts can get a receipt for their donation from the parish or the school for tax records.
How many people come to a Great Gathering?
It can be for as many people as you like! We have Great Gatherings of all sizes, from 6 people up to 50 people.
How much do tickets sell for?
They sell for between $25 and $100 dollars, depending on several factors.
So Great Gatherings have a theme?
Yep! Some ideas that have been successful before:
