Fully Virtual Rey of Light is Huge Success

With hundreds of viewers watching from homes around Cincinnati and beyond, the fully virtual Rey of Light raised over $600,000 for tuition assistance for DPCR students.

The entire April 24 event was broadcast from DPCR. Here’s a look at that and a few of the “watch parties.”

The evening began with a Mass celebrated by Father Bill Verbyke, SJ. The program that followed was led by Masters of Ceremonies Siobhan Taylor, DPCR president, and Donald Whittle, a 2020 graduate who’s now a student at the University of Cincinnati. Auctioneer Lance Walker led a live auction of 19 items and a paddle raise specifically for scholarships that raised over $313,000. Bidding continued throughout the evening on more than 200 silent auction items.

If you missed it, here’s the recorded program and Mass.
The virtual program broadcast was the result of months of behind the scenes work led by co-chairs Cathy Ramstetter, DPCR Board member, and Julie Ross, past member of the Board and the generosity of many sponsors

Mark your calendars for the 10-year anniversary Rey of Light on APRIL 23, 2022!
