On Saturday, Nov. 18, Northwest Catholic High School will host its annual fundraiser Saturday Night Live! This special event will be the 34th of its kind.

Current and alumni parents and staff as well as old and new friends of the school will gather for an exciting evening of entertainment, fellowship, and magnanimity at the West Hartford school. The public is invited, and tickets are still available at northwestcatholic.org/SNLtickets. 

What distinguishes Northwest Catholic’s Saturday Night Live! from peer events is its eclectic character, binding catholic with Catholic. The school will be transformed into a variety of venues – a wine bar, a dessert café, a sports club, and more.

Guests can enjoy a show, a meal at the international buffet, and shopping for NWC gear. They may visit the teacup auction, bidding on items ranging from restaurant gift certificates to summer reads.

Although the event is clearly community building, the focus of the night is fundraising, which will be highlighted through the spirited live auction and raffle drawing with a chance to win $10,000, $2,500, or $1,000. Tickets will be sold at the event.

What also distinguishes SNL! from like events is its warmth of character. Guests come as they like, and that, gratefully, can mean jeans. Some will gussy up, some will gussy down, it makes no difference: guests at SNL! will come to laugh and eat and drink and give.

The public is invited to learn more about giving at Northwest Catholic by visiting northwestcatholic.org/giving or contacting Director of Advancement Pat Walsh at pwalsh@nwcath.org or 860-236-4221 ext.138.
