Join Us for Our 20th Anniversary Celebration of Light: Banquet at the Ballpark!

February 18, 2022

Article from our 2022 February Fulcrum News

Fulcrum is thrilled to announce the Celebration of Light 2022 fundraising gala will be held on May 20, 2022 at T-Mobile Park for Fulcrum’s 20th anniversary! Friends of Fulcrum are invited to gather in person to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of Catholic schools, students, and educators throughout Western Washington.

While the Celebration of Light is typically held in January, Fulcrum moved the event after consulting with Archbishop Paul D. Etienne to follow health mandates during the COVID-19 pandemic. The new date and location will allow Fulcrum supporters to gather safely outdoors in a socially-distanced manner.

This will still be the same Celebration of Light we all know and love! Come in cocktail attire to our banquet at the ballpark, enjoy a wonderful meal served on tables on the field with Fulcrum friends, and show your support for Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Seattle! The foundation is grateful for all we have accomplished together. Fulcrum has had much to celebrate over the past 20 years, thanks in large part to the donations gathered each year at the Celebration of Light.

Donations from the Celebration of Light fuel all programs at Fulcrum. In the past 20 years, our programs have expanded to include building leadership capacity, early childhood education, and the Becraft Scholars Program. In the last two years, donations have allowed Fulcrum to increase funding to schools, helping them navigate these difficult times.

If you would like to support our programs through the Celebration of Light, please use the enclosed envelope. All donations will count toward our fundraising goal and continue to keep Catholic schools excellent and accessible. Donations to the Celebration of Light may also be made on May 20 at the event.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you! Keep an eye out for more updates about the Celebration of Light, including a mailed invitation and some upcoming emails! For more information about our gala, contact Nicole Gummow, events manager, at
