The Catholic Education Foundation Futures committee is hosting their seventh annual Art Event at Boulevard Brewing Company on February 28th at 6:30 pm. Every year committee members and friends gather at the Art Event to raise money for the Catholic Education Foundation’s Guardian Angel Fund. The Guardian Angel Fund was created to give scholarship support to families facing emergency financial hardships due to job loss, medical expenses or similar.
Along with several other members of the Catholic Education Foundation Futures Committee, I recently had the privilege of touring Christ the King Catholic School in Kansas City, KS. I arrived at the school on a rather chilly November day, eager to meet the students and converse with them over school lunch. Upon entering the front entrance doors of the school, I immediately felt surrounded by warmth and happiness.
As we approach this very special season of both giving and giving thanks, I think about all of the things I’m personally grateful for: my children, the health of my family, and a job that allows me the opportunity to provide for my kids. One thing I’m especially grateful for this year is to be part of the Catholic Education Foundation’s Futures Committee. The Futures are a group of dedicated, young adults that focus on promoting the mission of CEF – the gift of a Catholic education for those that seek it.
It’s that time of year again!
October 20th will be a night to remember as we support the Catholic Education Foundation at its annual event, Gaudeamus. The Catholic Education Foundation provides scholarships for students with financial need to attend Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.
Gaudeamus is our biggest event of the year. It has been on The Independent magazine’s list of Top Ten events in Kansas City for six years in a row!
Last month, the Catholic Education Foundation Futures Committee hosted its third Cocktails for a Cause event, setting new records for both attendance and money raised. Proceeds from the event will fund approximately seven Guardian Angel scholarships, which provide tuition assistance for students attending CEF-supported schools when their families face an unexpected financial crisis that impacts their ability to pay tuition (job loss, medical emergency, etc.).
