It was a magical evening at Cardinal Ritter College Prep’s 7th Annual “Celebrating Success in Urban Education” Gala on March 8th, 2018 at the Coronado Ballroom. Thanks to hundreds of generous sponsors, donors, and guests, the Gala raised $300,000, which will be distributed to deserving students and their families in the form of tuition assistance and scholarships. The memorable event was led by Master of Ceremonies Michael McMillan, President/Chief Executive Officer of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis. CRCP President Tamiko Armstead inspired the audience with her State of the School Address, and bestowed the Joseph Cardinal Ritter Award upon Edward Jones, presenting sponsor of the Gala, in honor of the firm’s philanthropic leadership in the community. The award was accepted by Robert J. Ciapciak on behalf of Edward Jones.
Featured student speaker Ruby McDaniel shared the impact of Cardinal Ritter on her life, her family, her future, and her faith, earning her a standing ovation from the audience. Archbishop Robert J. Carlson thanked the loyal and generous supporters of Cardinal Ritter Prep, and encouraged all of the guests to continue to support the mission of Cardinal Ritter. Principal Michael Blackshear led the closing prayer, in honor of his retirement at the end of this school year. CRCP is so grateful to our generous supporters! All proceeds will provide vital support for CRCP’s financial assistance and scholarship opportunities. To learn more and view all event photos, click here.
