¡VIVA! is the one, magical night of the year when the entire Cristo Rey family joins in celebrating our students and toasting their success. With your help, we change lives and make a Catholic, college preparatory education and professional work experience possible for young women and men from Spanish speaking families with limited financial means.
Each year, ¡VIVA! fills our funding gap – raising $600,000 for the Annual Fund. While the ongoing public health crisis has reshaped our daily lives and while ¡VIVA! may look different this year, the need and the mission remain the same.
Join us Thursday, June 18 as we draw ¡VIVA! season to a close with a virtual celebration. Tune in from 7-8 p.m. and share in all our traditional ¡VIVA! night highlights:
- Words from our students and supporters
- Special remarks from President Antonio Ortiz
- One-of-a-kind performances by Mariachi Monumental de México and our students,
And, to top it off -
- A LIVE dance party hosted by CR alum, DJ Mayhem (CR'12)
