The Garden Party

Light the Path

Please join us to help light the path for Cristo Rey Columbus High School students and prepare them for success in college, in career and in character. 

In addition to first-hand experiences with our students, you’ll enjoy a selection of delicious hors d’oeuvres, wine and signature cocktails, stroll along the paths of the Topiary Garden, and relax in a special outdoor living room under the stars. The evening also will feature special guest OSU and Indiana Pacers legend, Clark Kellogg, and entertainment by Columbus’s favorite musical act, MojoFlo!

Parking: Free valet parking will be offered in front of the school.

Attire: The theme for attire is “Garden Party Cocktail.” For men, this may mean a suit, or a sport coat and khakis. Ties are not often worn, but are welcome! For women, you might see anything from a sundress to formal cocktail attire, and all are encouraged. When choosing your footwear please remember that a portion of the evening will take place on grass. A light jacket or shawl is recommended, as much of this event will be held outdoors.

Weather: In the event of rain, The Garden Party will be held inside, at the same location.
