Visions of Christmas

Visions of Christmas, Carondelet’s flagship annual fundraiser and community engagement event, supports programs and provides opportunities that benefit every Carondelet student.

Redesigned in 2019 for the 30th annual Visions of Christmas

→ Purchase tickets
→ Raffle tree presales

→ Bid in the online auction

This festive celebration features four fun-filled events, including two beautiful Holiday Teas, a Bubbles & Brews cocktail party, and a family-focused Visit with Santa. Our weekday events include raffle trees, silent auctions, and receptions in the Jean Hofmann Center for Innovation. After the reception, guests are seated for the Teas in the Garaventa Center. Sunday’s Visit with Santa is held in the innovation center and includes breakfast bites, a photo booth, time with Santa, and a range of fun activities for kids.

Because our goal is to provide a wide variety of items and gifts in our silent auction to meet your holiday shopping needs, we no longer host a holiday decor and accessory boutique.

We look forward to welcoming you, your family, and friends to Carondelet’s marquee fundraising event.
