2020 Cross and Shield Gala
Saturday, February 29, 2020
6:00-11:30 PM
Marriott Water Street Hotel Tampa


The Cross and Shield Gala is the biggest social and fundraising event for Tampa Catholic 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. 

The funds will be used to support the renovation of our Crusader Gymnasium locker rooms, as well as, the addition of meeting space and a 3,000 square foot Student Wellness Center. Your support will enable Tampa Catholic to continue its path towards success for all students.

The Evening

Registration begins at 6 PM on the second floor in the foyer of the Marriott Water Street'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 using the BidPal mobile bidding program.

BidPal is a 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. 

We are excited to welcome back our Master of Ceremonies, Jay Gould! Jay will lead the evening's events including the Live Auction and "Fund the Mission" appeal. The Live Auction always offers unique one-of a kind items to bid on. 

Lastly, you will be able to dance the night away to the sounds of our special TC DJ, Chad Lazzara '90.
