Autumnfest XXIV Fun Begins October 3rd
This year’s Autumnfest Committee is hard at work bringing the final pieces together for this year’s Parish Carnival. Many of the changes over the last two years have helped this Parish Fundraising event exceed the fundraising goals that support our Parish Ministries, School Operations and other services that St. Hedwig provides to our community. With your support, last year’s Autumnfest once again generated record sales in “Pre-Sale” ride rickets which contributed to overall Carnival Ride sales of over $100,000.00 for the first time ever. Now looking forward to this October, Autumnfest XXIV will continue to offer a variety of exciting rides and games for all ages, as well as a full schedule of community entertainment.
Once again, the Orange County Symphony will open Autumnfest on October 3rd with a performance of their award winning Wind Symphony at 6:15 PM. Then, Gregg Young and the 2nd Street Band will return Saturday October 4th to entertain everyone with their unique blend of Rock and Jazz that earned them the Unanimous Choice Award as “Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year” at the 17th Annual Los Angeles Music Awards.
Of course you will have a chance to maximize your fun at Autumnfest XXIV by taking advantage of our “Family Sponsorship” packages. This sponsorship opportunity includes exclusive benefits—ride tickets, food coupons, and recognition in the Parish Bulletin. But, this year will also include discounted game booth tokens for all the Parish operated games found on the St. Hedwig Midway. All Parish operated game booths will be going “cashless” this year. Custom designed souvenir style game tokens will be sold after all September Masses as well as the Information Booth during all three days of Autumnfest XXIV.
One other change you will experience at this year’s event is increased chances to win money and prizes in our “Harvest Raffle”. There will be drawings every 2 Hours during all three days of Autumnfest XXIV where you will have an opportunity to win one of 10 different electronic items (i.e. an i-Pad, a Go Pro Hero 3, and a Panasonic 39” HDTV), $600.00 in Shell Gas Cards, or one of two all cash prizes that includes the Grand Prize of $7,500.00!
