Update 7/10/20: After much discussion and careful thought, it has been determined that the Magic of Children event will look very different from the years past.   With the recent spike in local cases of COVID-19, we have decided to:

  1. Cancel the Magic of Children dinner from Kalmes’.
  2. Move all auction items to a silent auction format (biddingowl).
  3. Keep the event an exciting one to participate in!
Marquette’s official Magic of Children event will go live on Facebook and Youtube along with the Parish cable channel beginning at 2:00.  This is when our auction will also open on Bidding Owl.
For those that would like to join “Party Central” – we invite you to also join in on Zoom: 
Topic: Magic of Children 2020
Time: Jul 11, 2020 2:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
Here, you can interact with other members of the Marquette community, talk with those helping to make the event a success, and to celebrate the night, our mission, and our commitment to education through faith (note: you will not need to join Zoom to participate in any of the excitement during the night).
I’ll be bringing the action to everyone live throughout the night, along with Colonel Jess Herrig joining in the fun after Mass (our Youtube Feed and Parish Cable Channel will share our Saturday Mass at 4:15).  
Our honorees will still be introduced, digitally, at 6:00 so you’ll want to make sure that you’re joining us at that time and throughout the night.  
We’ll be selling $10 chances to win a 55″ flatscreen TV, and our helping hands items will all be on BiddingOwl as well!  We will not be playing BINGO due to the fact that we’ll be broadcasting using many platforms – but, we will have a fun way of choosing our winner that you won’t want to miss.  Tune in tomorrow to see how!
Please keep an eye on Facebook as we’ll provide directions for logging into Biddingowl, how to give to our helping hands causes and how to buy raffle tickets, and as we bring our ‘preview night’ right to your homes.
In short: Marquette’s Magic of Children event will be done as a digital auction this year – with live entertainment on Facebook, Youtube, Zoom, and Bellevue’s cable channel from 2:00-8:00.  You do not need to join the whole time – but things will be happening throughout the evening so tune in when you can.  Things will really get going at 6:00 as we introduce our honorees and as the auction nears completion.  
We hope that you will join us for a night of fun.  Share the links so others can join us too.  Thank you for your support!
There has been a lot going on recently – but we’ve gotten this far and we control the direction that we’re heading. This is the day the Lord has made and that is reason enough to celebrate. We’re thrilled to bring the celebration to your homes this weekend. We’ll ‘see you’ tomorrow!
Also: Thank you to all of those who had paid for a meal in advance and dedicated your payment to a Helping Hands cause!
