Gold and Blue Gala

Holy Cross School will host its annual gala, “There’s No Place Like Home,” on Saturday, April 21, 2018. As we transform our Student Center into an elegant ballroom, a unique atmosphere will be created for our guests to truly have an amazing time, all while supporting the Holy Cross students on their journey to becoming a Holy Cross man.
For more than 160 years, Holy Cross School, the second oldest all-boys Catholic school in New Orleans, has served our community as the premier young men's college preparatory school. Nestled under the shade of majestic oaks, Holy Cross has seen generations of boys grow into servant leaders who make a difference in our world. Holy Cross fosters a sense of true community like no other school. From Pre-K through twelfth grade, Holy Cross is "One Family United by the Cross, Our Only Hope."
This year’s Gold and Blue Gala will feature an open bar, cuisine from many local restaurants, live entertainment, live and silent auction items and more. This is sure to be the Holy Cross event of the year that you won’t want to miss! Holy Cross has always been blessed with the generosity of its parents, alumni and friends in the community. We would be honored to have you as a guest on Saturday, April 21. After all, “There’s no place like home!”
Your generous support and attendance will not only assist in making this event successful, but it will also help Holy Cross School and the Boys to Men Fund make a life-long impact on our students!
