Cross & Shield Gala


Dear TC Friends,


I am thrilled to share with you the remarkable success of the 2024 Cross & Shield Gala, which took place this past Saturday night. It was truly an extraordinary event that left a lasting impression on all who attended.


Thanks to the incredible generosity of TC's supporters, we raised nearly $500,000. The funds, after expenses, will be used to support the tuition assistance program and campus facility improvements over the coming years. This achievement stands as a testament to the unwavering dedication and commitment of our community towards the mission and vision of our school. 


The Gala was not just a fundraiser; it was a celebration of Tampa Catholic's traditions of Faith, Excellence, and Family. Throughout the evening, we were treated to special moments that highlighted the essence of our community. One such moment was the moving witness talk by senior Jordan Busciglio, who shared her inspiring journey from a TC summer student to an honors and AP scholar. Jordan also shared her spiritual journey of being initiated into the Catholic Church through the RCIA program. Her sincere testimony deeply touched each attendee, underscoring the profound impact of a TC education.


Thank you to Gala Chair, Tammy Berard P’25 and the Gala Committee Chairs for their dedication and leadership. We appreciate the time put forth by our fantastic parent volunteers who also made this night possible.

Mark your calendars for next year's Cross & Shield Gala, which is scheduled for March 8, 2025, at the JW Marriot Hotel. It promises to be another unforgettable evening as we come together once again to celebrate the outstanding education that empowers our future leaders to reach new heights of success.


Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our school community. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our students and shaping a brighter future for generations to come.
