December 11, Advent Mass and Gala Dinner/Dance in Vienna, VA

With merrymaking and revelry in the air, CAC cordially welcomes everyone to its 2010 Advent Mass and Christmas Gala Dinner/Dance on Saturday, December 11 with Mass at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:45 p.m. and a dance from 9 p.m.-1 a.m.

We begin with our Chaplain, Fr. David Beaubien celebrating Mass at 6:30†p.m. at the Chapel of Our Lady of Good Counsel on 8601 Wolftrap Road in Vienna, Virginia.

Then, as an extra special treat, for the first time in many years, CACers will be partaking in a scrumptious seated dinner elegantly served at the beautiful Marco Polo Restaurant on 245 Maple Avenue in West Vienna, Virginia immediately following the Mass.

Our meal begins with a Crisp Tossed Salad with House Dressing followed by Breast of Chicken Marsala with Sliced Mushrooms and Large Shell Pasta Filled with Spinach and Ricotta (everyone gets both entrees on the same dish!) and a contorno (side dish) of Fresh Broccoli Florets Lightly Buttered. Dessert is a traditional homemade Italian Rum Cake (yum!) with coffee or tea. (Note: if you are vegetarian or have food allergies, please let us know when you RSVP!) There will be a cash bar throughout the evening and some light appetizers before the meal.

At 9 p.m. the dance commences, with our DJ spinning popular music from the past to the present.

Admission is $48 for nonmembers and only $38 for members. CACers can reserve a spot one of two ways:
By check: Send a nonrefundable check, payable to CAC of Washington, DC, to Lynn Sorbara at 232 King Farm Boulevard, Rockville, MD 20850. Dinner reservations must be received (not postmarked) by December 4.
