Established in 2009, the Red Deer Regional Catholic Education Foundation puts on an annual fundraising event to help fund faith-based initiatives that are not provided by Alberta Education. These fundraisers rely on sponsors to raise funds that are directed to students through various projects and scholarships, initiatives at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools. Without the support of our sponsors, these projects and initiatives would not be possible.

We are celebrating our 11th anniversary with an unforgettable evening! Please join us on Thursday, March 5, 2020 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre in Red Deer as we Raise our Glass to Catholic Education. Please dress casually.
