We are very excited for the Lobster Dinner coming up this Saturday, March 14th!  Doors open at 5 p.m., with dinner being served around 6 p.m.  Get there early to secure seats (if you didn’t already reserve seating),  mix and mingle, bid on silent auction items, buy raffle tickets and check out the raffle prizes.

  • The silent auction will have some AWESOME prizes and 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit the school.  Some of the exciting prizes are 2 night stays at the Hyatt Regency in both Santa Clara and Fisherman’s Wharf, Yoga classes at Being Yoga in Burlingame and a Minecraft Party at Tech Rocks.  Of course, we will also have the ever popular class baskets, which are handcrafted by the students, as well as Principal for the Day and Front Row Seats at Graduation.
  • The raffle prizes this year are a desktop computer with a touchscreen monitor, a Microsoft Surface RT laptop, and a set of Bluetooth stereo headphones.
  • Finally, this year we are introducing a new raffle, called a 50/50 card draw.  This raffle will be $10 to join and you will pick 1 card from the deck.  We will tear the card in half and you will keep half and put half in a draw bag.  One winner will be drawn and keeps half the pot.  Fun!  Bring your $10 bills!

If anyone would like to donate a propane tank for use the evening of the event, please contact Shali Paguia at shalilim@comcast.net.

Also, if anyone needs more raffle tickets to sell, please check with the school office.  Remember, each book sold will earn your child a free ice cream ticket and every 5 books sold earns free dress!

Before Event Letter

Dear St. Dunstan Parents,

Lobster Dinner is next Saturday, March 14th from 5pm-10pm at the Parish Center.

Get ready for a great time – food, fun, dancing, enjoy the raffle prizes and silent auction.
Here’s how it works:

5pm –   Doors open. Registration starts. Secure seats (if you didn’t reserve a table of 8/16) by writing     names on the table with markers.

  • Hit Bar area – see FAQ for drink pricing.
  • Silent Auction begins – include Class Baskets containing special artworks, Principal for the Day, front row seats for Graduation, hotel accommodations, summer camps and classes and lots of fun services and activities for kids, parents and the whole family!
  • Raffle Prizes – 1st prize – complete personal computer, 2nd price- tablet, 3rd prize – headphones
  • 50/50 Card Draw – new this year! $10 to join and pick 1 card from deck. Tear card in half. 1 half for you to keep and the other half to be put in a draw bag. 1 winner will be drawn and keeps half the pot. Fun! Bring those $10!
  • Cooking Time – Our St. Dunstan dads take front stage to do the cooking for the night!
  • – Bob Disco and cooks will boil lobsters with all sorts of shrimp, garlic, sausage & veggies. Yum!
  • – Kamal Naser will do our chicken and sides entrée. Delicious!

6pm –   Everyone take their seats (so make sure you get your drinks early).

  • Opening Prayer – Father Casey will lead us in prayer
  • After, we all stand up and step away from the table for the cooks to pour the entire contents of the cauldron (big, huge pots) over the tables for everyone to feast.  There will be plenty of food.
  • We sit down and eat…no plates or utensils but plenty of paper towels and wet wipes.
  • Next, we offer dessert and coffee to wash down anything caught in the esophagus and to please the palate.

–     Afterwards, Lobster Cleaning Crew swoops in for a quick cleaning.

–    We then fold up half the tables to make room for the dance floor.

8:30pm –   Raffle Prize and Silent Auction Winners will be announced.

  • Dancing will follow till 10PM

As you know, this is our biggest event for the year, and our expectations are that we’ll net somewhere north of $20K for our school.  Our Lobster Committees are working hard to make this evening a success. But we could use some help.   We are still in need for filled PROPANE TANKS (15 tanks) and Costco/Smart & Final Gift cards. If you can help, please contact Shali Paguia at shalilim@comcast.net.

Committee volunteers and servers – Thank you in advance. You will ABSOLUTELY get to enjoy dinner – just ask your wife/partner/invisible friend to keep a spot for you at one of the tables.  You’ll have plenty of time to sit, mingle and feed yourself silly.

Seating is open but the key here is that we must preserve a ratio of 16 people per table.  We can’t have 18 at one table and 14 at another.  Why?  There are 16 lobsters per cauldron, and we allocate one cauldron per table.  In order for everyone to be assured a lobster, it’s critical that you don’t move chairs around.

Answers to FAQs:

  • No, tickets will not be sold at the door. We are sorry, but no walk-ins.
  • Yes, your dinner includes one non-alcoholic drink per person.

For additional drink tickets, you can purchase at the door: $3 – alcoholic drinks /$1- soda and water. Bulk ticket purchase: $10 for 12 tickets and $20 for 24 tickets.

  • For additional lobster order, a lobster ticket will be given to you at the registration table. Your extra lobster can be picked-up from the kitchen window after dinner is served.
  • Yes, bibs will be provided. But bring your own lobster crackers and whatever else you need to enjoy your lobster.
  • For chicken entrée order, you will be given a balloon and a ticket at the registration table. Put the balloon at the chair you will be seated. After your table has been served the lobster, you can make your way toward the kitchen area and exchange your ticket with your chicken meal.
  • We are sorry, but we cannot accommodate lobster take-out orders for those who are unable to attend the event.
  • Sorry, we don’t have TO-GO containers, so please bring your own doggie-bag for your leftovers.
  • The attire is casual – Dress for mess!

Dear St. Dunstan Parents,

The Lobster Dinner is coming up on Saturday March 14th from 5pm-10pm in the Parish Center.

There will be something for everyone: food, fun, dancing, enjoy the raffle and silent auction.

Here’s how it works:
At 5 pm, doors open. Beverages will be available while you view the silent auction. Personalized class baskets will be waiting for bidders. Please thank the room parents for their hard work on creating this masterpiece.  There are also more exciting silent auction items for everyone to bid on.
Mr. Bob Disco will once again lead our Dads in cooking the lobster feast. Mr. Kamal Naser will prepare a special dinner for those who do not want the lobster dinner. Thank you St. Dunstan Dads!
By 6 PM, attendees are to take their seats and Father Casey will lead us in prayer. The cooks will come in to pour the entire contents of the cauldron on the tables. Guests will need to step away from the table as contents are poured on the table. There will be plenty of food to enjoy. There will not be plates or utensils but plenty of paper towels. Please bring your own lobster crackers or utensils you may need to enjoy your lobster. Bibs will be provided.
Dessert and coffee will be served. When everyone is finished, the Lobster Cleaning Crew will quickly clean the tables and some of the tables will be cleaned and put away to prepare the floor for dancing.

Raffle and Silent Auction winners will be announced at 8:30 PM followed by dancing until 10:00 PM!

As you know, this is our biggest event for the year, and our expectations are that we’ll net somewhere north of $20,000 for our school.  Our Lobster Committees are working hard to make this evening a success, but we could use some help.  If you need service hours or if you would like to help, we ask that you please start considering where/how you can contribute. We can use more help with maintenance, security and clean up crew. If you can help, please contact Shalimar Lim-Paguia at shalilim@comcast.net.

The following items tend to represent some of our larger expenses, and we can really use donations for:

Filled Propane Tanks

Costco or Smart & Final Gift Cards (to purchase items as butter, mayo, paper towel, etc)

 

Committee VOLUNTEERS will ABSOLUTELY get to enjoy dinner – just ask your wife/partner/friend to keep a spot for you at one of the tables.  You’ll have plenty of time to sit, mingle and eat.  Seating is open but the key here is that we must preserve a ratio of 16 people per table.

Here are answers to some FAQs in advance:

  • No, tickets will not be sold at the door. We are sorry, but we cannot accommodate walk-ins.
