Annual Gala for Catholic Schools
The Archdiocese of Baltimore's 7th Annual Gala celebrating Catholic Education was held on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at Towson University's SECU Arena.
Taking place each Fall and promoting the mission of our Archdiocesan Schools, the Annual Gala received generous support from over 120 corporate and individual sponsors, parishes and schools. An opportunity to share our rich Catholic School heritage with nearly 800 attendees, the event raised significant funds in support of both current and endowed tuition assistance scholarships for low income students across our community.
Featured speakers included Nicol Balaam, alumna of Ss. James & John School and Mercy High School, business owner and acclaimed author of The Fortitude Factor: Stop Dreaming & Start Succeeding, Dr. Barbara McGraw Edmondson, Superintendent of Catholic Schools, and Jim Sellinger, Chancellor of Education, both of the Archdiocese.
Master of Ceremonies, Tim Tooten, of WBALTV kept the evening flowing with a lively program that included a tribute to Most Reverend William C. Newman, Retired Auxiliary Bishop of Baltimore for his years
of service, a video of exciting STEM initiatives at our Catholic schools, and inspiring student performances.
