Event Details

We're going VIRTUAL in 2021 so that we can bring everyone together safely and joyfully. We're also offering an IN-PERSON VIP experience for sponsors at The Manor at Ten Eleven, our Happy Hour Co-Hosts.

Keynote speaker Mark Hart, special guest Eduardo Verástegui, and musical guest Sarah Hart are going to IGNITE YOUR HEARTS.

The virtual event is set for Thursday September 23, 2021 at 7pm and will be live streamed on YouTube. The in-person VIP event begins at 5:30pm with cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres. It includes special seating for the virtual event with VIP attendees, swag bags, a tour of The Manor, photo opportunities, and more. We're excited to announce our emcee, Natassia Paloma, an award-winning journalist and evening news anchor for KTSM.

Registrations for the virtual experience are $75 per household and include surprise swag bags and your code to "enter". Sponsors of $1,000 and up will receive invitations to the in-person VIP experience with Mark Hart. Seating is limited.  

This year, the Catholic Foundation will present Bishop Mark with the Dei Gratia Award honoring the Diocese of El Paso Clergy and Religious for their heroic ministry during the pandemic. The 2021 Steward of the Year will be announced live during the event.
