Sponsor Our Gala

Gala photos

The Annual Gala & Auction is our flagship fundraising event of the year. This high-profile, not-to-be-missed event brings more than 400 parents, alumni and friends of O'Connell together for an evening of great food, fellowship and fundraising. As a Gala sponsor, you will receive brand visibility and have your business positioned squarely in front of some of O'Connell's most ardent supporters. Your sponsorship will directly benefit the student experience at Bishop O'Connell and impact every student on our campus. Sponsors are showcased:

Pre-event: Leading up to the event, your logo will be placed on our event website and ticketing page, and you'll receive periodic social media shout outs on O'Connell's Advancement Office Facebook and Instagram accounts. 

On-site:  In addition to priority/prime tickets, during the event, your company logo will appear on special signage and banners and in the slide show loop, all sponsors are mentioned from the podium and have their logo/company names scrolling on the bidding devices. Certain sponsorships allow for a give-away opportunity and enhanced onsite opportunities.

Post-event:  Your company will be thanked in our Knights' Pages Annual Report (circulation 13,000), and your logo/link will remain on our event website for one calendar year.  In addition, your company will receive prime positioning in our DJO Means Business initiative which includes networking events, an online business directory and exclusive opportunities for participants.
