Cristo Rey Jesuit High School turned 20 this year, and what better way to celebrate than to have a dinner at the Chicago Hilton on Cinco de Mayo!
Almost since the school’s inception, Cristo Rey has hosted an annual fundraiser for scholarships called ¡VIVA!. This year, the traditional Mexican themed cocktail reception will be transformed into a sit-down dinner at the Chicago Hilton on May 5th from 5:30 to 11:00 p.m.
Presented by Insurance Auto Auctions, this 20th Anniversary Dinner Celebration will welcome guests with a Mariachi Band and passed margaritas, highlight 20 years of growth, feature alumni and students, and honor two men who have made a lasting impact on Cristo Rey and the Chicago community – former president, Rev. James Gartland, SJ, and Mr. Jorge Ramirez. The evening will conclude with live entertainment and the chance to dance until 11:00 p.m.
The traditional $10,000 raffle will return, along with a live auction and paddle raise, and all of the event proceeds will toward student scholarships.
