2021 JPII Legacy Gala

Join John Paul II Center (JPII) on June 18 for our 11th Annual Legacy Gala being held outdoors at our new location – FirstEnergy Stadium. Throughout the night we will celebrate the resilience of our students, adult, and staff over the past year and share our gratitude for those who made it possible for us to do so.  The event’s presenting sponsor is Customers Bank. The evening will be capped off with a spectacular fireworks display sponsored by Kelly Toyota

During the event, we will present our Halo Award to Brad and Sharon White for their tireless support and commitment to the individuals and programs at JPII.  In addition, we will recognize Priscilla Plucinsky with our Peggy’s Legacy of Faith Award for her volunteerism. The event will follow current CDC COVID guidelines and will include a virtual component for those who are unable to attend in person. 

The support we received during last year’s event benefited our students and adults in many ways.  We increased our scholarships to our families, and we were able to quickly transition to virtual learning through the purchase of updated technology.  Your support this year will ensure that we continue to be available to support our students and adults when they need us the most.

If you have any questions concerning the Legacy Gala, please contact our Director of Advancement, Melissah Jablonski, at 610-777-0605, x1014 or

Note: If you are purchasing a combination of adult and children tickets, each transaction must be made separately. We apologize for the inconvenience.
