Legacy Gala 2022: "Centennial Celebration"

Legacy Gala, the premier fundraising event for Cathedral Prep, Villa Maria Academy, and Mother Teresa Academy, will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2022. This year’s theme, “Centennial Celebration”, continues the tradition of inviting parents, supporters, and alumni to embrace our mission of developing the spiritual, intellectual, and social growth of our young men and women. Last year, an amazing 245 attended virtually and over $275,000 was raised! Legacy Gala 2022 will be back in-person at the spacious Bayfront Convention Center with a new high energy feel! The evening will be complete with gourmet food stations, a wide array of beverages throughout the evening, and a live band! Fabulous items will be up for bid in both the silent and live auctions. One very special individual, Rev. Scott Jabo, and the founder of Villa Maria Academy, Sisters of St. Joseph, as an organization will be historically inducted into BOTH the Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy President’s Hall of Fame that evening.

The combined generosity of parents, local businesses, and benefactors in planning the event, donating items, and sponsoring and attending the event, make Legacy Gala the success that it has become.
