ALL ABOARD the S.S. Bonaventure!!
On Saturday, May 25th you are invited on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Bonaventure for the annual President’s Soiree in support of St. Bonaventure’s College Bursary Program. Departure will take place at 7:00pm from the Aula Maxima in Mullock Hall and we will toast the departure with a glass of Champagne. Boarding Passes are $150 each with a $75 tax receipt and can be purchased at the President’s Office located in Mullock Hall.
The S.S. Bonaventure has many of the amenities you would expect on any cruise ship. Some of our onboard activities include a Casino featuring black jack tables and a roulette table, Silent and Live Auctions featuring auctioneer extraordinar, Wayne Bartlett, and Raffles on a number of fun and exciting prizes.
For the music lovers you are in for a treat. We have a number of fantastic performances scheduled for our maiden voyage. As you board, you will be treated to the musical talents of Alex Dinn. Next, Kelly Ann Evans will take the stage with some of St. Bonaventure’s College Senior Students with a performance that is sure to have everyone up and dancing. Finally after the live auction, Billy and the Bruisers will take the stage to keep the party going as we sail into the night.
Wondering about food? No need to worry. Like all cruise ships, there will be plenty. We will be featuring some of the best chefs that Newfoundland has to offer as they prepare a variety of sumptuous delicacies for our guests to enjoy. For those with a sweet tooth, there will be desserts aplenty. Cash bars will be available for our guests.
As the cruise is a fundraising event, we are looking for donations for our raffles, silent auction and live auction to make the event a success. Live auction items are generally of higher value and can include such items as original art, trips, and experiences like dinner parties, entertainment packages, time/lessons with a celebrity or weekend getaways. Silent auction and raffle items are usually of lesser value but can be equally creative. Parents are encouraged to contact artists, business owners or any alumni who may be willing to donate an item or service. If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact Krista at email@example.com
We are also looking for Sponsors. There are different sponsorship levels available. We are looking for a sponsor for our Coach Bag Table, a sponsor for our Champagne Reception and multiple sponsors as Event Supporters. Please see the attached sponsorship form for details for each level. If you or your company would like to be a sponsor for the Annual President’s Soiree On Board The S.S. Bonaventure please contact Krista at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you, your friends and family aboard the S.S. Bonaventure on Saturday, May 25 at 7:00pm.
