Saint Viator High School has a gift suggestion for some of the hard-to-shop-for family members on your Christmas list this year. As part of the school's Night of the Lion celebration, the school is offering special gift packages featuring tickets to the annual fundraising gala.

The black-tie optional gathering is scheduled for April 20, 2013 at the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumburg. The event will pay special tribute to Rev. Robert M. Egan, C.S.V., who has served as President of the school since 2005.

Krystle Seifert, Director of Special Events for the Arlington Heights school, said the gift concept offers a fun way for alumni to treat their parents to a special night out.

"Many parents sacrificed quite a bit to put one or more children through Saint Viator. We think that our Night of the Lion ticket gift is a great way for alumni to say thanks to their parents."

The Night of the Lion Ticket Package includes two tickets to the event ($175 each) and a special Saint Viator commemorative gift.

The tickets and gift will be wrapped and delivered prior to Christmas for all orders received by December 20th.

"We know how hard it can be to find a meaningful gift for parents or even spouses," said Seifert. "This gift provides a very special night out along with a genuine means of saying thank you to a family member." Seifert also suggested the gift would make for a nice surprise for a spouse who is an alum as well. "The Night of the Lion is a wonderful event that brings together so many members of the Saint Viator community each year. Space is limited and tickets always go quickly so we thought it would be fun to offer the Christmas gift idea and make everyone's shopping a bit easier, too."
