Gala Success! Over $90,000 raised for our new school project!

Our annual gala is our largest fundraiser for our New School Building Project!


Thank you to everyone who made this year's Gala, "Casino Royale" an outstanding success.  We were so pleased to see so many of you enjoying this event; connecting with one another as members of our school and parish family! Please see videos posted on Facebook.   
As the biggest fundraiser for our exciting new school building project, we raised approximately: 
  • $34,000 in sponsorship 
  • $20,000 in our silent and live auctions
  • $30,000 in direct donations to the project
  • additional $$ from our raffle, 50/50 and drink sales, 

We surpassed our goal and raised an incredible $90,000 for our New School Building Project (this is in addition to the announced $75,000 donation made by The Michael Cuccione Foundation)!

Every year, we continue to be amazed by the extraordinary work of our parent volunteers.  We are especially grateful to all the volunteers and sponsors of the event (please support these donors - see attached program beautifully completed by Laurin Thompson). This important event would not be possible without the tireless effort of our volunteers. To our previous coordinators, Kerri Nardulli and Alda Campos, for their hard work securing a record number of sponsorships this year, to our incoming coordinators Cinnamon Bhayani, Maria McKim, and Michelle Burns along with all the dedicated parents who have put in countless hours.  Congratulations to everyone for putting together such a memorable evening! Also, a big thank you to our wonderful MC, Lynn Colliar, Father Gino, the PEC, and all the school staff for their help!  PLEASE SHARE YOUR PHOTOS WITH US!  (email: or Your feedback is important to us.  Please share your thoughts on the event to   

After much hard work, our building committee has reached a major milestone which means the dream of our new school could be realized in a few short years. You are helping us build for the future.
