Legacy Gala

Please Join Us!

The 22nd Annual Bishop Guertin Legacy Gala, on Saturday, April 13, 2019, features an evening of fun, fashion, auctions, and dinner. This year, we will also enjoy the auctioneer talents of Mr. John Terrio.  The proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Cardinal Endowment Fund for Scholarships and Financial Assistance at Bishop Guertin High School. 
 
The gala also celebrates the founding of Bishop Guertin High School by paying tribute to the generations of Brothers, religious women, laypersons, and the local business community whose dedication has made Bishop Guertin High School the prominent institution it is today.
 
Each year, Bishop Guertin provides financial aid and scholarships to area students who are academically strong but in need of financial assistance. It is projected that more than $800,000 in scholarships and tuition assistance will be needed this year. It is important to recognize, however, that community support for BG's fundraising efforts is essential to maintain the continually growing need.
 
Join us as we come together to renew old friendships, make new acquaintances, and participate in the social event of the year.
