What is Panacea?
Panacea is a weekend-long carnival event full of fun for the whole family! It is the largest annual fundraiser (this year celebrating our 44th annual event!) held to support Pacelli Catholic Schools where 100% of the proceeds benefit the more than 800 children we serve each year through our childcare, preschool, and K-12 education. We take pride in our laser focus on academic excellence and strong values for our students so each dollar earned at Panacea goes right back into our classrooms.
When & where is Panacea held?
Panacea 2018 will be held September 7, 8, & 9, 2018 at Pacelli Catholic High School, 1301 Maria Drive, Stevens Point, WI 54481.
What are the hours of Panacea each day?
Panacea is open from 4PM-11PM Friday, 11AM-11PM Saturday, & 11AM-6PM Sunday.
You won’t want to miss the ever popular A&P Carnival rides and games. But if that’s not your fancy, check out Pacelli’s Famous Friday Night Fish Fry or the Sunday Chicken Dinner. Our silent auction, Central Wisconsin’s largest, is open for viewing and bidding all weekend. Families will have fun participating in
Saturday’s Panacea 2018 Color Fun Run Walk, with 1 mile and 5K course options you can run or walk, and kids will enjoy checking out the fun contests and activities at this year’s newly revamped Kid’s Corner outside under the entertainment tent. Shop the Farmer’s Market for tasty treats, baked goods, and farm fresh produce or the Spirit Shop to outfit yourselves with new Pacelli gear.
Don’t forget to try your hand at the Money Tree and Basket Raffle where you can win cash and fabulous prizes! And let’s not forget the Cherry Tree where everyone’s guaranteed to win something from a lollipop up to a special grand prize. Plus, with our major raffle, you could win a NEW 2017 Buick Regal donated by Len Dudas Motors or $20,000 as well as other cash prizes donated by the Wiskerchen Family, so you’ll need to be sure to get your tickets for that and the cash raffle featuring 11 prizes ranging from $100-$1,000!
At the end of the day, grab a slice of pizza, a hamburger, some cheese curds, even some ice cream for dessert, head on over to the beverage center and get your world rocked with music by Blame it on Waylon on Friday night and The Presidents on Saturday night. Come back Sunday for the Polka Pow Wow featuring music from Rich Raclawski & The Keepers of Honky and Cynor Classics. We also look forward to welcoming back alumni as we host their class reunions Panacea weekend!
It’s a weekend full of fun for families and people of all ages, so we hope to see you there! Stay tuned for our full detailed schedule of events coming soon.
