Foundation of Catholic Diocese of Buffalo plans education gala

The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo is planning to hold its 18th annual Catholic Education dinner – GALA 22:6 – on Feb. 1 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

The proceeds from the dinner will be used to fund needs-based tuition assistance for students attending Catholic elementary schools in Western New York. The 2017 dinned raised more than $250,000.

The 2018 Bishop’s Medal honorees include the three chair couples for the Upon This Rock capital and endowment campaign, which has raised more than $107 million to date: Judy and Tom Beecher, Barb and Jerry Castiglia, and Betsy and John Sullivan. Judy Beecher and Jerry Castiglia are being honored posthumously.
