Gaudiosa 2019: An Evening in Paris!

Gaudiosa 2019: An Evening in Paris!

Jesuit High School's award-winning fundraising gala, Gaudiosa, is just a few weeks away, on Saturday, February 23 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown!

(UPDATE: As of the week of February 4, Gaudiosa 2019 is SOLD OUT!)

This year, Gaudiosa travels to France for An Evening in Paris. Jesuit's award-winning Special Events Coordinator, Jane Younger, and her staff of volunteers are dedicated to making this 16th annual Gaudiosa another spectacular, beautiful, fun-filled event – all benefiting Jesuit's financial aid! The past five years, Gaudiosa has raised more than $3.4 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.

Gaudiosa is the area's most recognized fundraising gala by the Tampa Bay Business Journal. The TBBJ has named Younger the Tampa Bay area's "Best Event Planner" four times, and it has named Gaudiosa the "Best Fundraising Event" four times!

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.
