Jesuit High School's award-winning fundraising gala, Gaudiosa, is just six weeks away, on Saturday, February 24 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown!
This year, Gaudiosa travels to Italy for An Evening in Rome. Jesuit's award-winning Special Events Coordinator, Jane Younger, and her staff of volunteers are dedicated to making the 15th annual Gaudiosa another spectacular, beautiful, fun-filled event – all benefiting Jesuit's financial aid! The past four years, Gaudiosa has raised more than $2.7 million for the school's financial aid program, helping to ensure no qualified boy who wishes to receive a Jesuit education is denied the opportunity for financial reasons.
In 2017, the Tampa Bay Business Journal named Younger the Tampa Bay area's "Best Event Planner" for the fourth time, and named Gaudiosa as the "Best Fundraising Event" for the fourth time!

Gaudiosa is a Latin term for "a joyous feast." The locational theme for each Gaudiosa is based on the travels of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus - the Jesuits - in the 16th century.
