Visions of Christmas

Visions of Christmas is our largest fundraiser of the year which, to date, has raised over $4 million helping to fund our campus capital projects and tuition assistance, among other programs and projects that benefit our students. This year marks the 25th anniversary and Visions has grown to include 7 events over 6 days - a Community Open House; five afternoon teas; and a Family Breakfast with Santa.

Thank you to all the CHS parents, alums, alum parents, faculty and staff, Board of Directors, students, and friends of Carondelet who shared their time, talents and resources to help make Visions of Christmas 2014 a successful event.  We couldn't do it without you!

Thank you to all of the guests who attended one or more of the events and supported us through your presence, boutique shopping, silent auction bidding, Fund-A-Need donations, and/or drawing ticket purchases.
