Cardinal Crusade

Cardinal CrusadeExceeding Expectations: Cardinal Crusade Crushes Attendee, Revenue Goals

We were beyond blown away by the success of this year’s event. With over 200 attendees, the 6th Annual Cardinal Crusade Live Auction + Dinner was more grand than the spectacular hall that was filled with games, tremendous prizes, conversation, laughter, and fun.

We are excited to announce that this year’s event brought in $40,000 – our biggest and best yet – to invest right back into our classrooms and teachers! And that’s not even including the nearly $15,000 raised to fund a new sound system in the Pacelli Catholic High School gym. Thank you to everyone who attended, sponsored, donated, bought raffle tickets, volunteered, or contributed to the event in another way! We are floored by the amount raised this year (more than doubled last year’s net profit!) and we couldn’t have done it without you. THANK YOU!

Congratulations to this year’s tuition credit raffle winners!

What is the Cardinal Crusade?

The Cardinal Crusade is an evening of fun and fellowship supporting Pacelli Catholic Schools. The event consists of socializing, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, raffles, games, prizes, a silent auction, and a live auction with many great items, packages, and experiences that you could call your own. The Cardinal Crusade is one of the largest annual fundraisers, second only to Panacea, where 100% of the proceeds again go to supporting the more than 800 children served each year in our childcare, preschool, and K-12 educational programs.
