Jingle & Mingle Gala
On December 19, Masons from Regions 4 and 5 and their ladies met at the prestigious Oakmont Country Club for the annual Jingle and Mingle Gala.
In the splendor of the Grand Ballroom, surrounded by photos and relics of the famous club's storied past, guests kicked off their holiday season with a chance to renew friendships, greet R.W. Grand Master Stephen Gardner and his lovely wife, Patricia, and enjoy the delicious food highlighted by chef-carved filet mignon.
Guests were entertained by both a strolling quartet of a cappella singers including Gail Roup, wife of District Deputy Grand Master P.J. Roup, as well as by Bro. Eric Waggoner on piano. Their holiday music blended perfectly with the ambiance of the elegantly decorated room.
There was also a silent auction of items donated by some of the District Deputy Grand Masters and generous Masons felt moved to support this most worthy charity. The items included food and wine baskets, handmade jewelry, Lenox, gifts and sports memorabilia.
Not only did those in attendance have the opportunity to get into the holiday spirit, but through their generosity, the event raised $5,000 for the Masonic Villages at Sewickley, showing once again that Masons answer the call to "Earn it Again."
