The Central Catholic Gala

On the evening of February 17, a packed house of 675 alumni, parents and friends gathered at the Mays Family Center at the Witte Museum for the 5th annual Central Catholic Gala. Over the past five years, the Gala has evolved into a hallmark cele- bration for everyone affiliated with Central Catholic High School. Each member of the extended Central Catholic community came together to pay trib- ute to special individuals and experiences, to celebrate the school’s tradition, and to raise support for the school’s future. It is truly a blessing to witness the ongoing gen- erosity of all who continue to support our school.

As dinner began, the Gala Chairs welcomed guests and ushered in the night’s theme by recognizing Coach Carlos Enrico for his 40 years of dedication to Central Catholic. Mr. Eddie Ybarra then introduced the Our Time video that illuminated the mission of the capi- tal campaign: to accommodate continued growth in enrollment, and to serve the growing spir- itual, academic, and co-curricular needs of Central Catholic students.

We would like to give special thanks to the Gala Chairs, Steve ‘86 and Jill Markey and Charlie ‘84 and Sonia Gomez, as well as the entire Gala committee. Funds raised from this event come from a number of sources—sponsorships, auction donations, generous auction bids, ticket sales, and other special donations.

On behalf of the entire Central Catholic Gala committee, thank you for your support! Your contribution is very much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you at the Gala next Spring!
