Please join us Saturday, October 24, 2020 for Gaudeamus, a gala benefiting scholarships for K-12 Catholic school students with financial need.

Gaudeamus (meaning "let us rejoice") is the signature fundraising event for the Catholic Education Foundation, and is one of the Kansas City area's premiere charity events. In 2019, Gaudeamus raised a record amount -- more than $2 million for CEF scholarships for low-income students attending Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

CEF's beloved Gaudeamus event will be held at the Overland Park Convention Center according to municipal and state guidelines for events. A virtual event is also being considered.  To receive updates about the event as information becomes available, sign up here.

Sponsorship and registration information is coming soon. Contact Amy Meara at (913) 721-1574 for more information.
