Celebrating its 125th year, along with rising enrollment, St. Matthias Elementary School kicks off a new tradition with a gala fundraiser at DANK Haus, Feb. 23, 7 p.m. Organizers plan to make the event an annual occurrence.

The evening will feature food stations, an open bar, music from DJs Toast & Jam and dancing, a silent auction and instant wine cellar raffle.

St. Matthias is the patron saint of tailors, hence the name of the gala, "A Stitch in Time."

Tickets are $125 person. All proceeds benefit St. Matthias Elementary School.
