Catholic Social Services hosts exciting events that connect us with the Anchorage community.  They also enable us  to partner with other agencies and show that we are united in our support of Alaska’s most vulnerable citizens.  We look forward to seeing you at one of the events below soon!

The Global Village Experience

Celebrate the beauty, wonder, and joy in our global village on Saturday, April 27, beginning at 2:00 p.m. at Grow North Farm, located 3543 Mountain View Drive.  Participants will dance down the street to music from around the world and listen to stories from different cultures.  Learn more!

This event is free and open to the public.  It is the result of an 18-month project between the Anchorage Concert Association, Catholic Social Services Refugee and Immigration Services (RAIS), L.A.-based Lula Washington Dance Theatre, Mountain View Boys & Girls Club, and many Alaskans.  Like their Facebook Page to stay updated.  See you there!

Charity Ball

The 29th Annual Catholic Social Services’ Wilma Carr Charity Ball will be Saturday, May 11, 2019!  Participants will enjoy a Venetian masquerade, providing an evening of music, dancing, and masques – a fabulous event for a great cause.  The doors open at 5:30 p.m. at the Hotel Captain Cook.

This year, our “Together We Can” campaign, a feature of each Charity Ball, will focus on St. Francis House Food Pantry.  As Alaska’s largest client-choice pantry, we respect each shopper’s right to choose their own food.  Accordingly, we believe that food should be displayed in a way that dignifies their shopping experiences.  Stay tuned to learn more!

Register for Charity Ball!


We need your help to put on these events!  If you are interested in volunteering or want to know how you can lend a hand, please contact Alicia Jacobs, Community Engagement Manager, at or 907-222-7335.
