Lumen Christi’s annual Gala is …

The Lumen Christi Annual Gala and Auction is the largest fundraising event the school puts on each year.  This elegant evening is a wonderful way to celebrate our school with fine food, friends, live and silent auctions, entertainment, and more.

Our upcoming 23rd annual “Mardi Gras Gala” will be held at Lumen Christi High School on Saturday, February 10, 2018.  Doors open at 5:30 p.m., where you will be transported to Bourbon Street in New Orleans for the evening. The silent auction will start at 5:30, followed by dinner being served at 7:30 p.m. By 8:00 p.m. our live auction starts, which also includes heads or tails and the dessert dash.

Lumen Christi’s generous community supporters donate hundreds of items for our auction, ranging from handmade quilts to gift baskets to adventures in Alaska. In addition to the fun you will have bidding on auction items, Gala attendees will see some of our talented students in action. They not only help work the event the night of in various ways, but are also helpful behind the scenes in the weeks leading up to the auction.  Students from each grade also work together to create projects to be auctioned off, ranging from the traditional senior rosaries, to one-of-a-kind treasures such as hand-painted furniture or art pieces.

Individual tickets and tables to attend the event are available to purchase and we are currently accepting donations.  Donations can be dropped off at the school or picked up at your convenience.  We also have advertising space available for purchase in both our auction booklet and event night slideshow.

Thank you for your continued support of Catholic Education.
