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.

This year, our special honorees will be Lamar & Rita Hunt. Mr. & Mrs. Hunt have been longtime supporters of Catholic education.

Again this year, CEF's Gaudeamus event is planned to take place at the Overland Park Convention Center, following municipal and state guidelines for events. To receive updates about the event as information becomes available, sign up here.

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