The Catholic Foundation hosts an annual gala fundraiser for the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Each year, more than 500 guests gather to support the Foundation’s Tuition Assistance Program and celebrate all our Catholic schools provide.

A key element of the evening is a speaker who, at our bishop’s invitation, shares their perspective on the importance of Catholic Education. Past speakers have included His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, and Dr. Carolyn Woo, former Dean of the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. She is now the President of Catholic Relief Services, the USCCB’s international relief organization. Also, we heard from His Eminence Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, and Rev. Timothy Scully, CSC, from the University of Notre Dame.

We invite you to join our parishes, Catholic schools, and tuition assistance supporters at this elegant evening featuring top notch cuisine and outstanding company! Information about the 2018 Gala can be found below.
