Bishop Chatard
Alumni Newsletter

February 2022
Thank you to the the nearly 500 people who attended Bishop Chatard's 2022 Chatard-A-Bration on Saturday, Feb. 12, all who participated in the silent auction and, of course, our Red Carpet sponsors! All funds raised help to provide much-needed tuition assistance and teacher compensation.
Live like a Trojan, Give like a Trojan
Our Trojan Day of Giving is March 22, and during these 24 hours, our alumni, parents, and friends will come together to give as much as possible in a single day to support student tuition assistance at Bishop Chatard.

In this 60th year, we are hoping to raise $60,000 which is more than we have ever raised in a single day of giving campaign, but we believe this is the year we can make it happen! With each of our graduating classes committing to just over $1,000, we are going to easily hit our mark!
Don’t miss this chance to empower a young student and build a future for us all. Our students have the drive to lead in this world and let their light shine. Your tuition assistance support will light up that path.
Give now or plan on giving on March 22!  #Trojansforlife

  • Make a reservation as a single person ($30) and we’ll create a table for you (in-person only).
  • This is an over-21 event for all players.
  • Sponsor a Round for $500, which includes a table of play
