Celebration - Something to Celebrate!

We’re still smiling and celebrating after what was a successful Celebration – Be The Light! event.

Thank you to all who joined us in person and virtually as we honored our Beacon of Light award winners, Dr. Bill Ford and Dr. Joe Passantino, and raised money to support Catholic education at Holy Cross.


Our Cash Raffle Winners were Garrett Newman, 1st place ($1,500), Andy Dyson, 2nd place ($700), and Jeff & Lynne Wichmann, 3rd place ($300). And congrats to our Golden Ticket Winners, Rich and Julie Lundstrom!


We are happy to report Celebration – Be The Light! 2022 raised $229,896! From event sponsors and auction bidders, to raffle ticket buyers and the volunteer team, our community continues to show its generosity and we are forever grateful for your support.

While bidding may be over, financial gifts are always welcome. Click on the link below to support Holy Cross.
