FXW Gala 2022


The Frances Xavier Warde School (FXW) provides an academically excellent, values-oriented education to students of all ethnic, religious, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our largest fundraising event – our annual Gala – supports the school’s mission and helps fund our scholarship initiative. The event includes both an impressive live auction and one of the largest silent auctions in the city.

Our confirmed date of our event for this year is Saturday, April 2, 2022. We are so excited to re-launch this momentous event and bringing together our community for a fun, fabulous, and safe time.

Live and Silent Auction

We will also still host a silent auction which will directly support FXW’s scholarship initiative which supports accessibility and affordability for nearly one third of our students to attend FXW. As more families are impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, the demand for financial assistance continues to increase so your on-going support is even more appreciated during this time. 

If you are interested in donating to the silent auction, you can do so by clicking on our Auction Item Form.

An in-kind donation to our Gala provides an excellent opportunity to advertise your organization to a broad Chicago audience. Auction donations will appear in our online bidding platform that all guests and community members use to participate in the silent auction.

If you have any questions regarding Gala or the silent auction, contact our new Special Events Manager, Tia Lindholm.
