Night of the Lion



Our single, largest annual fundraiser, the Saint Viator High School Night of the Lion, returns Saturday, April 13!

The Night of the Lion is a celebratory night where alumni, parents (past and present), and friends of Saint Viator gather to honor those who have made an impact on our community and to raise crucial funds to benefit the tuition assistance fund.

NBC Sports host and analyst, Jordan Cornette, will be kicking the night off as our official emcee, followed by a silent and live auction, sit-down dinner, and a program honoring parents Nick ‘97 and Katie Papanicholas for their commitment and passion to Saint Viator High School.
Cocktail attire is encouraged.
