2019 Cross & Shield - Celebrating Excellence

Our Mothers’ Club volunteers are hard at work planning the 2019 Cross and Shield Gala for Saturday, February 23, 2019 from 6-11 PM at the Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina. It is an elegant night of silent and live auctions, dinner and dancing. Dress is Black Tie Optional.

The Cross and Shield is the biggest social event for TC each year. We hope that you will join Crusader parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and grandfriends for this elegant and fun evening. The Cross and Shield has another important purpose – it is the largest fundraising events of the year. Through the attendance and support of the TC family, Cross and Shield galas have raised over $1 million dollars for the benefit of our students. Gala proceeds help us continue to educate and form the leaders of tomorrow at TC.

This year proceeds from the gala will be directed towards the costs of the gym locker rooms and facilities renovation. We also have a special appeal at the gala for tuition assistance.

The Evening

Gala Registration Image

Registration begins at 6 PM on the second floor in the foyer of the Marriott Waterside's Grand Ballroom. Upon registering, you can then enjoy passed hors d'oeuvres and refreshments from our premium bar while bidding on the silent auction items on display in the foyer using the BidPal mobile bidding program. This mobile-based program allows you to keep track of your bids, see if your bid has been raised and alert you to items that have no bid - all from the convenience of your mobile device. 

Following our welcome for Michelle Gingras '08 our emcee for the evening, opening prayer and remarks from Principal Lees, a delicious dinner, prepared by the Marriott chefs, will be served at your table. Refreshments continue to be available from the bars located in the ballroom.

Following a special presentation and our tuition appeal, you will be able to dance the night away to the sounds of our special TC DJ.
