Gaudiosa 2019: An Evening in Paris

Gaudiosa 2019 Recap

Gaudiosa 2019: An Evening in Paris was spectacular! Thank you to everyone who made the 16th annual Gaudiosa such a success - a record-breaking $775,000 was raised for Jesuit's financial aid program!

 

With a gorgeous backdrop and atmosphere of generous giving, Jesuit High School's 16th annual fundraising gala, Gaudiosa: An Evening in Paris, was a smash hit Saturday, February, 23 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown.

In addition to setting a new fundraising record, the evening also featured the announcement of a major capital gift: A $2 million donation by Susan and Ron Antinori ’60 toward Phase II of the school’s Campus Master Plan! With this transformational gift, the centerpiece of Phase II will be named in his honor: The Antinori Center for Fine and Performing Arts.

As it does every year, Gaudiosa featured a beautiful, St. Ignatius-inspired theme designed by Elvia Rivera, P '14 and Annette Sanchez, P '17, more than 600 guests, and a spirit of support for Jesuit’s financial aid program. With this year’s record-setting total of $775,000 (the previous best was $705,000), Gaudiosa now has raised more than $4.2 million over the past six years – all for Jesuit students with demonstrated financial need.

Leading the way in 2019 were the Grand Gaudiosa Underwriters, who each gave $25,000 to "An Evening in Paris": Lindsey and Pat Carroll '98; Nikki DeBartolo and Sheriff Chad Chronister, P '22; The Hyer Family, P '01; Stacey and Ron Leal, P '09, and Lauren and Christopher Schellman, P '20.

The event showcased sensational live auction items such as vacations to Italy and the British Virgin Islands and a Tampa Bay Lightning experience, more than 300 fabulous silent auction items, delicious dinner, live music, and dancing. The surprise of the night was an impromptu live auction item donated by Sheriff Chronister that generated a bidding frenzy.

Student speaker Loki Fountain ’19 provided the most heartfelt moment of the evening. He spoke about the extraordinary impact Jesuit High School has made on his life, and of his love for the mentors and brotherhood he has experienced at Jesuit – which would not have been possible without financial aid.

About 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.

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 Younger and Gaudiosa were named TBBJ winners again in 2017.

Frequently chosen as the Favorite Fundraising Event in the region by the Tampa Bay Business Journal, Gaudiosa has raised over $7.3 million since it first began 15 years ago! 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.
