Leading Ladies Gala
Embrace the Tradition, Ensure the Legacy
2016 Leading Ladies
Over the past twelve years, the Leading Ladies Gala has raised over one million dollars for Oakland Catholic High School and is the largest annual school fundraiser. We hope to continue this success for future generations of Oakland Catholic High School students.
The annual Oakland Catholic High School Leading Ladies Gala began in 2004 and is today gearing up for its 13th gala! At the gala we recognize women of distinction and highlight the successes of our Leading Ladies who are representatives of the Pittsburgh region and beyond who are "leading ladies" in philanthropy, business, finance, education and the arts. By gathering these women from our various constituent communities, Oakland Catholic High School offers an opportunity for our young women to become the "leading ladies" of tomorrow. They are role models for the young women at Oakland Catholic High School exhibited by how they have made a difference in their lives, and in the lives of others.
In addition to recognizing the Leading Ladies at the Gala, the evening features opportunities for guests to support the mission of Oakland Catholic High School through the Silent and Live Auctions, a $10,000 Cash Raffle, Designer Purse Raffle and the OC Legacy Puzzle Board-a board filled with items on the faculty "wish list". All auction and raffle items are generously donated by alumnae, friends, family and donors of Oakland Catholic High School.
From the annual Gala proceeds, Oakland Catholic High School is proud to offer $1,000 to a student who qualifies academically, demonstrates financial need and exhibits leadership qualities through the Leading Ladies Scholarship.
