Rey of Light Success Continues with More Than $645,000 Raised at April 2018 Event!
The overwhelming generosity of friends, corporate partners and school supporters has led to another brilliantly successful Rey of Light Scholarship Benefit. Take a look.
Led by event chairs Julie and Brian Ross, the April 28 Rey of Light raised over $645,000 in an evening that included auctions, raffles, cocktails and dinner. A sold-out crowd of more than 460 filled the DPCR Student Center to capacity with the addition of an outside courtyard tent for the cocktail hour. The crowd responded generously to this video in which students asked them to raise their paddles for scholarships.
Rey of Light remains the school’s largest and most significant fundraiser to support financial assistance for students. Every DePaul Cristo Rey student receives financial aid to attend the school because DPCR serves only low-income students preparing them for college and the future through a nationally recognized education model combining college-prep academics with a Corporate Work Study Program.
The six-year total raised at Rey of Light is now $2.6 million!
Thank you to our generous sponsors!
