Our genuine and heartfelt appreciation to all who sponsored, donated, attended, volunteered, or helped in some way to make Celebrate 2019 another incredible fund-raising and friend-raising event that also “Celebrates” our amazing System, students, and staff. 
The night was successful in so many ways.  Thanks to the generosity of our many supporters, Celebrate raised a preliminary net amount of over $460,000!  This was a record-smashing year and we are so incredibly grateful to everyone for making this night such an astounding success. 
Each area of Celebrate was successful and generously supported, but we would especially like to thank all of the donors contributing to “Fund Our Future”.  “Fund Our Future” is where Deacon Ray explains the System need, we show a video, and then we ask people to make a tax-deductible donation to fund the future of our school system.  This year we opened the donation period with the announcement that an extremely generous (and anonymous) family would match donations up to $100,000.  We quickly surpassed that mark as the generosity in the room quickly raised $132,500!  For that we are exceedingly grateful!  Please see the video below.  If you watch this video and feel moved to contribute, please email Lisa at lpfaff@XavierCatholicSchools.org
*We would like to thank Lem at BConnected for filming this video and all of the students and staff for participating. 
We simply can’t thank everyone enough for their generosity of time, talent, and treasure in support of Celebrate 2019!  We are already looking ahead to Celebrate 2020 to be held on January 25, 2020 at the Fox Cities Exhibition Center.  Save the Date now!
