Being recognized as the Archbishop Joseph Naumann CEF School of Excellence means so much to Resurrection Catholic School at the Cathedral because we know how many great Catholic schools are served by CEF. It also causes me to reflect on how blessed the school is to have such a great faculty and staff. Led by Principal Lynda Higgins, Resurrection continues to thrive when most urban core Catholic schools nationally are navigating ways to keep their doors open.
When I first started emceeing Gaudeamus in 2009, I didn’t know what to expect. I’ve emceed other charity fundraising events in which the audience didn’t seem engaged in the mission of the organization. So why emcee Gaudeamus? Because this audience is truly interested in the cause and making Catholic education possible to those who can’t afford it is essential.
Mr. and Mrs. Stan and Suzan Cramer are this year’s recipients of the “Michael & Patty Morrisey Angels Among Us Award,” and they truly embody the spirit of Gaudeamus (“Let Us Rejoice”) as they have been joyfully giving to CEF for over a decade. Gaudeamus attendees are familiar with hearing Stan’s signature voice and seeing his big smile as the Gaudeamus Emcee for the past nine years. Behind the scenes, he has also contributed countless hours to video production for the event and served on CEF’s Marketing Committee.
As I entered the back parking lot of Holy Name Catholic School, I was drawn in by the endearing sounds of laughter and children at play. It was a special day.
The CEF Futures Committee is excited to host the 5th Annual Art Event, which will take place Thursday, February 23, 2017 at Boulevard Brewery! Tickets are $45 and include an art exhibit, live entertainment, appetizers and Boulevard drinks. The event features beautiful and unique art pieces from local artists. Also, an art piece from each CEF school will be raffled off at the end of the night (these pieces have been known to wow us)!
