A Record-Breaking Night of Light!

October 1, 2018
Thanks to our Board of Directors, our sponsors, our donors, and our friends, the 6th annual Night of Light was a record-breaking event! Thank you for helping us shine a light on Catholic schools and the children within their walls. Because of you, we are thrilled to announce that we raised more than:


$ 1 , 0 9 6 , 0 0 0

What can we say, but thank you?! The funds raised will help us award even more scholarships to children whose families seek for them a life-changing, light-bringing, Catholic education—an education that gives children the tools to Aim Higher.


T H A N K   Y O U!

On behalf of the Aim Higher Foundation, we want to thank those who were able to join us for the celebration, those that supported us with their time, talent, and/or treasure, the Catholic school choirs, and especially, our featured Aim Higher Scholar, Isaac Garcia from Community of Saints Regional Catholic School.


We also want to thank Dr. Carolyn Woo for her moving introduction of Karen Rauenhorst, our inaugural honoree, and the many members of Karen’s family who attended to show their love and support. Finally, we want to thank Archbishop Hebda and Bishop Cozzens for their presence, support, and inspiring words.

While we are thrilled with the success of the Night of Light, we know we have so much more to do and so many more children to help. We also know that no matter what comes next, we simply cannot do it without you. Here are a couple ways we can work together:

  • SAVE the DATE: The 7th Annual Night of Light will take place on Friday, September 27, 2019 at the Intercontintental Hotel in St. Paul.
  • STAY in TOUCH: How can we better serve you, our schools, or our community? We want to hear from you!
