The Cougar Family comes together as a community to celebrate and support Gross Catholic at special events throughout the year. Please join us at these events and discover the Gross Catholic difference!
CeleBration Is the Place to Be!
The Cougar Family is looking forward to CeleBration 35! We invite you to join us on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
A great evening awaits. Participate in the Live Auction! Purchase a Gold Cup ticket! Witness the presentation of the Dux Esto Award! Be a significant supporter of the Cougar Family!
CeleBration Has Gone Digital
The past few years people enjoyed wireless bidding on smart phones. It is fun and easy to use! No smartphone? No problem! We will help people with their bidding! If you can’t make it to CeleBration, you can join in on the fun! Anyone can simply visit our website and start bidding on auction items starting on the Friday before CeleBration.
We need your help to make CeleBration a success!
Here’s how you can support us!
- Attend the Event: Save the date for Saturday, April 18, 2020 to join parents, alumni, and friends as we raise funds to support the students of Gross Catholic High School at the Embassy Suites LaVista. Watch for your invitation in the mail or buy your tickets online! You can also reserve a room at the Embassy Suites for that evening at a discounted rate.
