Eighth Annual STArry Night: April 19-23, 2022
"Our STArs Shine Bright"

STArry Night has been a successful benefit for St. Thomas the Apostle for seven years. The first STArry Night was April 18, 2015. Each year, the event has grown, just as the school’s enrollment has grown, and it has served as an important community-building event. Each year, school parents, parishioners and friends from across Chicago have come together to support the students of STA.

STArry Night has provided the STA community with the opportunity to recognize the extraordinary programs that we offer our children, the committed teachers who build learning centered safe spaces in their classrooms – now, both in-person and virtually - and the extraordinary children themselves. 

STArry Night has raised over $220,000 for the students of St. Thomas the Apostle School in its first seven years. Through this event, over 31 sponsors have been able to support our extraordinary school.

One of STA's virtues that is prevalent today is gratitude! Thank you to the whole STA community for supporting this year's "VIRTUE-AL" STArry Night fundraiser! Your generous support makes it possible for STA to provide deserving students with scholarships, support STA's committed teachers & academic programs and fund any needed building improvements. Thank you! Together, we raised a total of $38,555 so far! We hit the $10,000 matching gift challenge AND surpassed our goal of raising $30,000 for the students at St. Thomas the Apostle School.
