The IgNight Gala is Holy Name of Jesus School's largest annual fundraiser. All proceeds support the school’s general operating budget to enable HNOJ School to offer the highest quality Catholic education possible. 

The success of our 2022 and 2023 campaigns helped furnish our growing classrooms and common spaces with new, flexible furniture, seating, desks and chairs. These improvements have had a tremendously positive impact on our student and staff experience.

In 2024, we remain inspired by Holy Name of Jesus’s robust culture of giving. Please help continue our momentum with your generosity and support of our 2024 IgNight fundraising efforts.

IgNight Gala 2024 will be held at the beautiful and newly renovated Golden Valley Country Club.
