Each year, Roncalli Catholic hosts three events, uniting alumni, parents, staff and friends of the school to raise funds to support the young men and women of our school. A brief description of each event is offered below. Click on the individual events for additional information.
The Swing with Pride, A. Len Leavitt Memorial Golf Open was started in 1989 by A. Len Leavitt (deceased) and Roncalli Catholic President Emeritus Fr. Lloyd Gnirk as a means to raise funds to support educational opportunities for students. Held each August, the annual event unites 200+ alumni, current and past parents, staff, and friends of the school for a day of fun on the greens.
Roncalli Catholic rings in the holiday season with its annual Taste of Pride fundraiser. This event will feature a sampling of various red and white wines, several craft beers and whiskey presented at various stations around the school. Guests will also enjoy hors d’oeuvres, judge student-decorated Christmas trees and potentially walk away with one of several raffle prizes. Wine and beer featured at the event will be available for purchase.
Festa del Leone is our school’s largest fund-raising event. Held each April, funds raised support operations as well as each student’s academic and extra-curricular experience at Roncalli Catholic. Featuring live and silent auctions, the event also features the presentation of the Pope Saint John XXIII Award, in honor of outstanding friends of our school in recognition of service to children and friends of God.
