Thank you to our sponsors and donors for making the 13th Annual Archbishop’s Gala such a success! All gifts are an investment in hope and opportunity for St. Louis kids.

Our sold out gala raised a record-setting $1,031,525 in support of Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation scholarship programs. The evening featured special performances from the St. Joseph Cottleville Jazz Band, St. Margaret of Scotland Violinists, the St. Frances Cabrini Student Choir, the Cardinal Ritter College Prep Jazz Ensemble, and vocalist Peter Murphy from St. Mary’s High School.

Archbishop Rozanski and TTEF Board Chairman Kevin M. Short bestowed the The Sr. Mary Ann Eckhoff Leadership Award upon longtime supporters Rita and Mike Mooney, and our distinguished alumnus Luis Llanos inspired the audience with his story of impact resulting from his scholarship and educational opportunity. Luis said it best: “I am proof that your support of the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation changes lives. That small kid who did not know English, starting early education at St. Cecilia School and Academy is now working with Fortune 500 C-suite executives all over the world. Thank you all for believing in me and giving me this incredible opportunity.”
