The Bishop Dunne 100 Dinner

The Bishop Dunne 100 Dinner is an annual event that has as its major theme the celebration of student achievement and success at Bishop Dunne. All proceeds support student sponsorships and tuition assistance for deserving families. The Dinner derives its name from the group of one hundred additional new students that Bishop Dunne Catholic School is planning to admit over the next few years.

Join honorary chairs, Shannon and Dr. Fred Cerise, for the 18th Annual Bishop Dunne 100 Dinner, on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. Mayor Mike Rawlings will be receiving the Voyager Award for his dedication to the GrowSouth initiative. The keynote speaker is Jason Witten, former Dallas Cowboy and current ESPN Monday Night Football analyst.

Cocktails will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m.

Tables and individual seats may no longer be purchased online.
