Participate in our online auction and support JPII from the comfort of your home!
One of our JPII families enjoying Gala

Ten years ago, we started work on our first Legacy Gala with the idea that it would be a great way to bring our mission to life in front of friends, family, local businesses, and community supporters. Now celebrating our 10th year of Gala, we invite you to virtually join us once again, to help create a beautiful night that will ensure our students and adults can continue to learn, gain independence, and reach for their goals. More details coming soon!

Halo Award

Our Halo Award honors community members who embody the spirit of our mission and who work to ensure our legacy into the future.

The night is highlighted by our Halo Award Presentation. For our Tenth Annual Legacy Gala, we honor Nanette & Sal Cutrona for their continued and tireless support of John Paul II Center.

A Day in the Life

It’s difficult for words to describe all the great things that happen at JPII because of the support we receive. So instead, take a look at “A Day in the Life” to see how our community’s generosity is impacting our students:

Making Lines A Thing of the Past

In 1837, Thomas Carlyle defined something new of the time: “The bakers shops have got their queues, or tails; their long strings of purchasers, arranged in a tail, so that the first to come be the first served.” What Thomas was describing at the time was, in fact, “the line.” But fear not, we have come a long way since 1837!

By registering your credit card in our secure ExpressPay system, you will save yourself the trouble of waiting in line at the end of the night to pay for your auction items.
