Chatard-A-Bration – February 11, 2023

Mark your calendars for a “Night in the Carribean’, the 2023 Chatard-A-Bration fundraising party!

Chatard-a-Bration, a most popular event and fundraiser for Bishop Chatard, provides an atmosphere of excitement, fun and fellowship. With Chatard-a-Bration being our second largest annual fundraising effort, the funds raised help provide vital tuition assistance for students and support for our amazing teachers through our Catholic Educators Advancement Program (CEAP).

2022 Fund-A-Need: New Bleachers in the Main Gym!

  • Goal: $50,000 +
  • Actual Cost: $225,000
  • Timeline: We hope to install the new bleachers before the next winter sports season.

They hold cheering fans. They become pews for weekly school Masses. They are seats in an auditorium for theatrical productions and musical performances — and they are getting worn out. It’s time to find a way to replace our tired bleachers! With your help, we are getting that project started with this year’s Fund-A-Need! Your gift will help us create a beautiful, highly functional environment for our students and all those who enter our doors. Thank you in advance for your support!
