​​Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am interested in coming. What can I expect?
A: The day is structured in three parts.  Golf and tennis are offered during the day at Cherry Valley for both men and women and a dinner for the non-golfer/tennis friends and family to join in the evening.  There is something for everyone that is associated with St. Joseph’s and represents the capstone celebration for the school for the year.  We also generally have a number of invited guests that support the school through golf and tennis and/or dinner.
Cocktails and dinner at night is intended for the golfer/tennis player and also spouses to join that may not have played.  In addition, there are a number of silent auction and raffles to win include a wide array of prizes that have included assorted baskets of cheer, golf and tennis items and lessons.  Prizes in the silent auction can include tickets to sporting events, restaurants, vacation getaways, and golf and tennis outings.
