Check out these great events that raise money for two of the island’s most important organizations – Friends of Virgin Islands National Park and the Animal Care Center.
From the Animal Care Center: A glorious fun-filled evening and a loving way to celebrate the holidays, this annual event features delicious creations by the island’s best chefs, great music, local talent & FUN! This year’s theme is “Party like a Rock Star”. Come dressed as your favorite rock star and prizes will be awarded for the best costume. Music will be provided by DJ Adonis, and there will also be a big raffle and silent auction. Both are known to be two of the best on the island, because the local merchants love to help the animals.
The gala will be held on Saturday, January 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the home of Joann and Glenn Hall in Chocolate Hole. Tickets are $100 in advance and $125 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here or at any of the following merchants:
- Chelsea Drug
- St. John Hardware

- And of course at the ACC shelter.
From Friends of Virgin Islands National Park: By popular demand, the 11th Annual Gala will once again be held at Presidio Del Mar in Peter Bay on February 1. Our gracious hosts for the anticipated event are Steven and Pamela Deckoff. Guests will be welcomed to this prestigious affair with champagne, red carpet and white roses! Truly the gala event of the year on St. John.
This year’s “National Treasures” gala will feature gourmet appetizers from start to finish, carving and food stations and specialty desserts from various culinary experts.
