The decor of the formal ball depicts columns, and statues, which have a feel for the first Olympics held in Greece.  Andy Woerdehoff, the other co-chair for the event, wouldn't offer a specific goal as to the total amount of money that is hoped to be raised, only to say attendees of the annual event will have an enjoyable evening, and they fully expect supporters of Gehlen Catholic school will be generous.

Woerdehoff says several items have been donated for this year's auction and silent auction, including vacation destinations, and a quilt made from various Gehlen Catholic t-shirts.  He says there are plenty of items to appeal to the sports fan.
