Tickets on sale for Green Tie Gala

Don your finest green and join Catholic Charities for the annual St. Patrick's Green Tie Gala at 6:30 p.m. March 8 at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel, 1 Park Ave., downtown.

The event raises money for programs at the Holy Family Home and Sanctuary for homeless women and children in Oklahoma City.

This year's Green Tie Gala will honor Chris Reen, president of OPUBCO Communications Group and publisher of The Oklahoman, as its 2013 ambassador.

The Holy Family Home is operated by Catholic Charities and is a residential care facility that provides assistance for basic needs in addition to guidance to help women and their families overcome poverty and become self-sufficient.

Tickets for the dinner gala are $125 and all proceeds benefit the Holy Family Home and Sanctuary Women's Development Center. Oklahoma fiddler Kyle Dillingham will provide Irish-inspired musical entertainment, and the evening will include a dinner and auction.

Mormons attend training

Hundreds of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met for local leadership training recently in Oklahoma City.

The worldwide church is run locally by lay, unpaid leaders who take on various responsibilities. Several members of the church's central leadership came from Salt Lake City to offer support and answer local leaders' questions.
