 What is Gaudiosa?

The award-winning gala Gaudiosa is Jesuit High School's primary annual fundraiser. All proceeds from Gaudiosa directly benefit the school's financial aid program. Save the date for the 15th annual event, Gaudiosa 2018: An Evening in Rome, on February 24, 2018!

Gaudiosa, which means "a joyous feast" in Latin, has been named the Best Fundraising Event in the region by the Tampa Bay Business Journal four times! In addition, Jesuit's Events Coordinator, Jane Younger, who oversees Gaudiosa, also has been named the Tampa Bay area's Favorite Event Planner four times! Both Jane and Gaudiosa were named TBBJ winners again in 2017.

Gaudiosa 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 -- An Evening in the Holy Land, An Evening in Venice, An Evening in London, and An Evening in Barcelona -- each raised more than $650,000, and combined raised more than $2.7 million for Jesuit's financial aid! Each year, Gaudiosa features more than 600 attendees, a gorgeous setting, sensational live and silent auction items, delicious dinner, and great live music. And of course, the spirit of the Jesuit High School mission permeates the event.

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.
