The 2023 VCS Gala was a Bright Shining Success

Thank you to everyone who joined in and supported VCS students. It was an amazing celebration of Valley Catholic faculty, families, students and alumni at our annual Gala celebration.

Together, we raised more than $365,000 with an impressive $180,000 allocated for tuition assistance!

Proceeds from Gala help VCS meet its annual operating budget and provide critical tuition assistance resources for students in need. 

Together, we help the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon continue their tradition of providing an exceptional Catholic education to students and families.
