CRISTO REY JESUIT FLIES
OVER THE MOON WITH ITS GALA
Nearly 900 supporters of Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory High School of Houston celebrated Saturday, January 14, 2017 at the new Marriott Marquis in downtown Houston. The first gala at the beautiful, expansive space had the place rocking with the “Moonlight Serenade” theme, and The Big Beyond dance band from Atlanta packed the dance floor. Chairs Trini Mendenhall, Cyndy Garza Roberts and Ileana Trevino were thrilled with the success of the first event of the social season and the night’s proceeds of more than $1.5 million in support of the school. The room glowed with the centerpieces in keeping with the moonlight theme. Monitors scattered around the room kept the guests updated on the Texans game during the evening.
Most Reverend Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza opened the evening with the invocation. Remarks from school President Paul Posoli brought cheers from the crowd. “I’m inspired every day by the determination, courage and ‘can do’ attitude of our students,” Posoli said. “This year, we will graduate our largest class ever of 135 students. Those students have already received 264 acceptances to 85 different colleges and universities. I’m confident that these young men and women are the future leaders of our great city, and as Father Martinez often said, will transform the world as men and women for others.”
As the senior class walked to the stage for recognition, everyone sprang to their feet clapping. Students stayed on the stage to welcome honoree Raye G. White, the inaugural recipient of the Father TJ Martinez, SJ, Legacy Award; she also received a standing ovation. White remembered her first meeting with the school founder, the late Father TJ Martinez, and how his energy and vision made her a believer in the mission of the school. The live auction had hands flying in the air to vie for unique items, including a yacht dinner cruise in Galveston. The dance floor closed down at 1 a.m. as the crowd of generous supporters partied all night!
