St. John's 2024 Annual Benefit Gala
Saturday, February 24, 2024

Gala will continue to have plenty of your classic games and entertainment but we've added a few new elements for this year. This page will prepare you with what to expect when you board the Gala on the Orient Express!



The Orient Express Passport will be on the front of your admission brochure (program). 

(Sample Passport Coming Soon...)

For Gala on the Orient Express, this is your path to the coveted 5th semi-finalist position for the $10,000 Grand Prize drawing.  This replaces the traditional path of being the winner of the evening's third bingo game.  Don't worry, there are still two bingo games to play with great prizes.  You can add stamps to your passport by participating in Gala's different events throughout the evening, like making a bid on a basket, playing games, trying out of the signature drinks or volunteering a bit of your time.  Drop your stamped passport into the drawing for that final spot on the main stage to win the grand prize.

We'll post a video explaining the PASSPORT soon!

For those channeling their inner First Class Passenger experience, you can pre-stamp your passport, drop it off immediately, and go enjoy the included heads and tails game, trivia, bingo, and game ticket.  That's available on the "Buy Tickets" page.



Play Trivia with Kahoot!  Try another new element for this year.  Test your knowledge and be the fastest to answer during the evening's trivia event.  Your $10 entry fee enables the player to participate during two sessions of trivia with the high score winning one of the coveted LEGO Orient Express Train Sets (21344).  Our custom Kahoot! game can be played through their app or straight from a browser page.  Questions and scores will be broadcast throughout the hall.

You can pre-buy your trivia entry on the "Buy Tickets" page. 


Signature Drinks

What's a ride on the Orient Express without a premier cocktail?  New for this year, the same tickets that you use to play you favorite Gala games like Wine Wheel and Plinko or used for the Casino can be also exchanged for one of our themed signature drinks, like a classic Old-Fashioned, at our special bar location.  You can pre-purchase single game tickets for $20 or buy the 6-pack ticket bundle for $100 to mix it up however you like on the purchase page.
