St. Francis Xavier School 75th Anniversary Gala
St. Francis Xavier School, the first Catholic school in Southwest Florida, is gearing up to host its 75th anniversary gala on Saturday, May 10 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Lexington Country Club in Fort Myers. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are currently available. The school invites members of the community to join its festivities by participating in the 75th Anniversary Gala, “Celebrating Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.” The event features live music, dinner, silent auction and more. In addition to attending the event, St. Francis Xavier School is accepting underwriting opportunities including sponsorships, gifts and in-kind donations. Proceeds from the silent auction, sponsorships, ticket sales and dedications will help fund tuition assistance and technology upgrades. “On behalf of our St. Francis Xavier School family, I thank all those involved very much for your generosity in helping us continue our tradition of ‘Connecting Faith and Families,’” said St. Francis Xavier School Principal Janet E. Ortenzo. “Together we can ensure the future of our school and the fine quality education we provide our students.” It was 1938, when five Franciscan Sisters from Allegany, NY arrived in Fort Myers with a mission – to establish a small Catholic school where children would receive an excellent academic education strongly rooted in the Catholic faith. This year, the school commemorates their legacy and milestone in education while recognizing St. Francis Xavier School and its 75th anniversary. Throughout year, St. Francis Xavier School has honored the anniversary with numerous events for students and alumni as well as members of the community.
