DINNER THEATRE & SILENT AUCTION2015 LOGO

SENSELESS

Every spring, our youth host a fundraising event that consists of a Dinner Theatre and Silent Auction.

Gethsemane youth perform an original work by our very own creative genius, Lane Holmstrom.  The evening includes both a silent and live auction and a delicious meal served by the youth.  Proceeds go to support our youth in their summer activities.
