Announcing the 14th Annual Carrollian Gala

Bishop Carroll Catholic High School has been privileged to host thirteen Carrollian Galas, and are pleased to announce that the fourteenth edition will take place on Saturday, April 29. The event is an elegant evening of dinner and music, featuring silent and live auctions, as well as the presentation of the Cornerstone and Distinguished Alumni Awards. We would love for you to join us for this special evening; ticket information can be requested through the contact information below.


The awardees for 2023 are as follows:

Cornerstone Award

Mr. Jerome Stephens, former BCCHS CEO and graduate of the Class of 1970

The John and Genevieve Wirfel family, who have seen dozens of descendants graduate from BCCHS.

Distinguished Alumni

Mr. Daniel Martinazzi, standout BC basketball star, local Physical Therapist, class of 1984

Dr. Maureen Letcher, Hollidaysburg principal, president of the Pennsylvania Principal's Assocation, class of 1990.

Last year we were able to hold an in-person event for the first time since 2019.  We also added an online auction with the Gala to increase participation and assist in raising necessary funds for the school.  We are appreciative of your support of Bishop Carroll Catholic High School.  In the current economic climate, we realize the struggles of small businesses and appreciate the sacrifices you make to donate towards our mission of providing a Catholic education to every family that desires one.  We hope that you consider making a donation towards our event this year.  

 We seek to not only continue our mission, as we have for nearly the last six decades, to provide a high-quality private education within the framework of Catholic values, but we are working towards growing that program through some major campaigns. We are committed to fulfilling our mission of providing a well-rounded experience, educating students in spirit, heart, mind, and body.  With persistence, faith and the partnership of truly caring and supportive business partners like you, our mission will continue another half-century. 

If you have supported the Gala in the past, either monetarily or through a prize for our auctions, we thank you and hope that you will continue to support this event.  If you have not donated in the past, we hope that you will consider giving to this worthwhile event that directly benefits our students.  With the support of community members such as yourself, we will continue to put our faith in the future on Husky Hill.
