St. Mary’s Ball and Charity Auction Just Over Two Months Away

The 2023 Storm Lake St. Mary’s Ball and Charity Auction is scheduled for Saturday, March 11th in the Siebens Forum at Buena Vista University, which will follow a 4pm mass.

The Chairs for this year’s event are Kevin and Tera Brown. Kevin is a Storm Lake native and St. Mary’s alum. He is the senior vice president/market president for Central Bank. Tera is a former St. Mary’s teacher, who is now a stay-at-home mom.

The Ball and Charity Co-Chairs are Josh and Kelli Berg, who work together on a farm south of Early. They farm grain and beans, and operate two turkey finishers, as well as a ten-pen brooders facility.

The St. Mary’s Ball and Charity Auction is the single-largest fundraiser of the year for the local Catholic School. Tickets are available online at, in the parish office, and various locations around Storm Lake. For more information, contact Ellen Gruntorad at 732-3110, or
