A Taste of Italy
Tradition continues at Corpus Christi Catholic School as we kick off our annual Gala of Giving Event – A Taste of Italy, which will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018, at Hunter’s Green Country Club. For over a decade now, hundreds of parents, alumni and community friends have joined together for an evening of dinner, dancing and an auction to celebrate Catholic education. Many things have evolved over the years but the one constant is the combination of quality academics in a Catholic environment. Our family of teachers has helped nurture our children in becoming successful adults with a giving spirit.
Over the years, this event has raised over a million dollars and allowed the school to move forward with many planned projects and provide for the needs of our students, teachers and faculty. We have improved technology for our students’ use with the addition of a collaborative lab and the expansion of our lab classroom to allow seating at an individual computer for 30 students, and the Young Author Program that encourages each child in all grades, K-8, to write and publish a book. In addition, we have been able to provide the infrastructure for a "one iPad per student" approach to learning beginning in grade 5. We are looking forward to purchasing a new state-of-the-art laminating machine to preserve the student's priceless class work and artwork for years to come! Your support will help Corpus Christi Catholic School in its continuous efforts to improve the educational programs that benefit our children.
We are currently seeking donations (merchandise or gift certificates) for silent and live auctions, as well as monetary donations/sponsorships to support this drive. Remember that your gift may be tax-deductible. Our 501(c)(3) Certificate #:85-8012515155C-0 (Effective 7/1/16-7/31/21). In appreciation of your donation, you will be acknowledged in our event program.
Thank you in advance for your support!
