Catholic Charities Gala 2019: Roots of Faith Branches of Hope

by Will Espinoza | April 18, 2019

On April 5, Catholic Charities hosted the annual Catholic Charities Gala at the Marriot Marquis hotel. As the agency’s single largest fundraising effort, we are proud to announce that we raised more than $2.1 million! Thanks to the tremendous generosity of those who attended the annual black-tie event, as well as our incredible circle of donors and volunteers, these funds will ensure that our work serving the most vulnerable will continue and that we are able to “Say Yes” to even more families in need. 

Guests enjoyed a delicious seated dinner, a video illustrating the amazing work of the Catholic Charities Health Network (see below), and danced well into the night to DC’s favorite 90s cover band- White Ford Bronco.

Thanks to everyone who supported the event- particularly gala chairs Karen and Chris Donatelli for making the event such a success.

Stay tuned to for details about next year’s event!
