Cross & Shield Gala

2018 Cross & Shield 

“A Celebration of Faith”
A Tribute to the Christian Brothers
An Evening to Remember 
As we look back with gratitude on an evening to remember we celebrated on Saturday, March 3, the 2018 Cross and Shield Gala in support of Tampa Catholic was a success on many levels. 
With a record number of alumni and extended TC family in attendance, we are thrilled to report in excess of $175,000 was raised - $100,000 in net proceeds - to support our S.T.E.M initiative at school and to ensure affordability at Tampa Catholic. Our students are blessed by your generosity. Thank YOU!
With our theme “A Celebration of Faith” we paid special honor via a tribute video to the ideals and charism of the Edmund Rice Christian Brothers who have served Tampa Catholic for nearly 35 years.  
The highlight of the Gala was moving reflections offered by Principal Robert Lees calling all in attendance to reflect and recognize influences in their own life story by noting, “I too am here because of the generosity of others.”  
Principal Lees culminated with the special announcement of a $250,000 contribution made last week to establish the Patrick and Mary Neary Endowed Scholarship Fund at Tampa Catholic High School. This endowed gift represents the largest single contribution made by an individual to Tampa Catholic and will yield proceeds in perpetuity to annually fund the cost of a TC tuition.   
In so many ways, it truly was “an evening to remember”!


Thank You!
