A Heartwarming Night

For 35 years, John Paul II Center has come together with our community to help both our students and adults explore their purpose in life. Because our staff gets to witness our individuals’ accomplishments each and every day, eight years ago we had a thought: “Wouldn’t it be amazing to celebrate these accomplishments together with our supporters?”

We invite you to join us for our Annual Legacy Gala. We promise it will be a heartwarming night!

Halo Award

This year, we honor Dick and Angela Ehst with our Halo Award, which is given to outstanding individuals who continuously support JPII and ensure our legacy into the future.

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:

Why Wait In Line?

Did you know that Americans, as a whole, spend 37 billion hours per year waiting in lines? In an effort to recycle your lost hours, we offer ExpressPay, so instead of spending your time waiting in line to pay for your auction items at the end of the night, you can use what would be line-time as dine-time or wine-time.

To preregister your credit card for ExpressPay, you can call us (610-777-0605) or sign up when you arrive at Gala. To ensure confidentiality, we never keep your information on file.


We would like to take a moment to recognize our sponsors and the tremendous support we receive from them. If you would like to make an impact at JPII by becoming a Gala sponsor, you can download our sponsorship form by clicking the button below:
