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. It takes the community at large – current parents, alumnae and their parents, local businesses and friends of Carondelet - to make Visions a success.
