Annual Fundraising Gala

Held each year in September, at the TD Convention Center, the annual Fundraising Gala is an entertaining opportunity to support student scholarships, teacher salaries, and school enhancements at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School. These efforts provide a high-quality Catholic education and instill in each student a desire for life-long learning and commitment to building God’s kingdom.

Attendees enjoy a seated, plated dinner, including beer and wine, and silent and live auctions. Hors d’oeuvres are served before dinner, and each gala has a theme, including ballroom decorations and activities. The evening includes live musical performance, DJ services, dancing, and more.

Throughout the year, the School Gala Fundraising Committee collects theme baskets, gift certificates, trip packages, and many other items for live and silent the auctions. If you would like to help with the this event, donate an item or have any questions, please contact Jean Hever at 864-608-5256 or send an email to
