Gaudiosa 2022!

Gaudiosa 2022!

Jesuit High School's award-winning fundraising gala, Gaudiosa, is just days away, on Saturday, February 26! This year's event – the 19th annual Gaudiosa – returns to London!

Gaudiosa: An Evening in London, at the Hilton Tampa Downtown, will feature the gorgeous setting, joyous atmosphere, and amazing silent auction and live auction items that have made Gaudiosa the Tampa Bay area's premier fundraising gala!

"We are truly thankful for our benefactors, who support Jesuit High School so generously," said Jesuit's award-winning Special Events Coordinator, Jane Younger. "We are also pleased to share that this year, once again, the Gaudiosa silent auction will be open to the general public, as is the chance drawing raffle."

Silent auction bidding is underway, click here to view all of the phenomenal silent auction items and place your bids! 

The raffle is once again sponsored by The Capitano Family and Marathon Gas. Raffle entries closed at 4:00pm on February 25.

Over the past eight years, Gaudiosa has raised more than $5.5 million. That includes more than $800,000 each of the past two years. All the money raised goes toward Jesuit's financial aid program, helping to ensure that no qualified boy who wishes to receive a Jesuit education is denied the opportunity for financial reasons.

As always, Gaudiosa will feature a beautiful setting, transporting the hundreds of guests "across the pond" to London, as well as the two phenomenal auctions, delicious dinner, a great live band, dancing, and the spirit of Jesuit High School. Younger and her staff of dedicated volunteers, including longtime Decorations Chairs Annette Sanchez, P '17 and Elvia Rivera, P '14, are working diligently to make this Gaudiosa another spectacular event – all benefiting Jesuit's financial aid!

The Tampa Bay Business Journal has repeatedly recognized Gaudiosa has as the region's best fundraising gala. 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!

Registration to attend the event is closed, as Gaudiosa 2022 is sold out. However, all can participate in the silent auction.

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.
