Click here to support the 2017 Archbishop’s Dinner for Education
The Archbishop’s Dinner for Education, which takes place each September, is a celebration of Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Omaha. Currently in its 40th year, the event provides an opportunity to publicly recognize the dedication of our Catholic school educators, to thank those who support our schools, and to raise scholarship funds for low-income students to attend Catholic schools.
Each year eight outstanding teachers and administrators who demonstrate a strong personal commitment to Catholic education and give service above and beyond the ordinary are honored as “Educators of the Year” at the Archbishop’s Dinner for Education. Each honoree receives a $5,000 award.
Proceeds from the event are used to fund scholarships which enable a greater number of children to attend Catholic schools throughout the archdiocese. Scholarship dollars raised are administered through the Children’s Scholarship Fund of Omaha.
Chairpersons for 2017 are Denise and Tate Fitzgerald.
