The 2020 Catholic Foundation Gala will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at the Hilton Downtown Tampa from 6:00–9:00 pm. Guests are invited to join the Catholic Foundation in Bringing Ministry to Life! Supporters of this year’s Gala can make an investment that will be dedicated to the needs identified through Courageously Living the Gospel. This means the Catholic Foundation can direct proceeds from our event to a variety of outreach efforts, which strive to bring ministry to life in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Tuition assistance for families seeking a Catholic school education for their children
  • Affordable housing projects
  • Regional youth ministry and young adult programs
  • Evangelization efforts to assist in spreading the Good News

This resource page will be updated with additional information as plans for the event progress.
