The Event

On September 27, 2019, more than 600 members of the Twin Cities community—business and community leaders, educators, friends of Catholic schools, and philanthropists—will come together to "shine a light" on the hope and promise of our futures: our children.

The Aim Higher Foundation's 7th annual Night of Light celebration is the metro area's premier fundraising event providing direct support to children whose families seek for them the life-changing benefits of a Catholic education. It is the only event in the area that benefits children at all 83 Catholic schools serving grades K-8 in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
