Step right up and see the world famous dancing elephants of India, the strongest man in the world (a true marvel of the human form!) and the one and only human cannonball—all under the Scotus Gala Big Top! We are excited to announce that the 40th annual Scotus Gala dinner/auction is just 2 months away! This year’s theme is “Under the Big Top” and we promise a fun and exciting event that will do so much for the education of our students at Scotus! The Gala is our school’s largest annual fundraiser and the Gala effectively provides a $550 tuition scholarship for each student attending our school.
We are trying something new this year for the Gala, in response to the pandemic. First, we will offer an in-person event for a limited-sized crowd at the St. Bonaventure Parish Center. The parish center is the perfect setting to provide a safe and fun environment for our guests and it is large enough to provide social distancing for our guests. Second, like last year, all of our auction items (silent, super silent and grand) will be available for online bidding. You may bid from your phone or computer on all the items, whether you are attending the Gala in person or at a Gala watch party at a friend’s house or if you are at home sitting on your couch.
Because of the limited size of our in-person crowd, we will be offering 30 round tables each seating 8 guests. We started selling corporate sponsorships for tables at a price of $1,500 and general table sponsorships at the price of $1,000. As of today, 24 tables are sponsored leaving 6 tables or 48 individual seats ($125 each) still available for purchase.

New this year, the State of Nebraska will allow everyone to purchase lottery and raffle tickets online using their debit card. To purchase lottery or raffle tickets online, use the donate button on the school’s web site and be sure to tell us how many tickets for each drawing you are purchasing! Tickets are also available at school and from any Gala committee member.
