Supporting Bishop Guertin takes many forms. From direct donations to volunteering to participating in one of several special events throughout the year, we are so thankful for your generosity. 

Legacy Gala

Bishop Guertin’s Annual Legacy Gala Dinner Auction benefits the Cardinal Endowment Fund for Scholarships and Financial Assistance. The event is so important because it helps raise much needed financial aid to ensure that a BG education is available and attainable for all those who seek it.

 

The Gala also celebrates the founding of Bishop Guertin High School, paying tribute to the generations of Brothers, religious women, laypersons, and businesses whose dedication has made Bishop Guertin High School the prominent institution it is today.
