Dreams Alive Gala

Dreams Alive Gala

Celebrating 10 Years in Brockton

Thank you to tall who came out to celebrate a milestone year with us as TCA turned 10! Our 2017 gala was especially memorable thanks to 300 guests who attended our event to share in the history and accomplishments of our school. We are so grateful to our many contributors who donated over $200,000 to our mission in empowering students to be motivated, curious scholars of strong character who continually strive to reach their fullest human potential in the classroom and beyond. Thanks to our philanthropic partners, TCA is thriving!


2017 Honorees

Joanne and Leo Vercollone: Thomas F. and Mary J. Shields Founders Award

TCA Basketball Coaches Jim Auger and Dom Falcetta: Senator Thomas P. Kennedy Legacy Award


About Our Event

Hundreds of supporters gather every spring at the Dreams Alive gala to mark Trinity Catholic's commitment to academic excellence. Our sponsors and contributors are an important part of this inspiring evening, which features a cocktail reception, dinner, and presentation of the Thomas F. and Mary J. Shields Founders Award and the Senator Thomas P. Kennedy Legacy Award to honorees for their assistance in perpetuating our mission in significant ways.

Our students are also a very important part of the night as speakers, performers, and presenters, giving our guests an exclusive opportunity to see the impact of their support firsthand.
