University of St. Francis, Pat Sullivan Center

In 2020, the University of St. Francis celebrates 100 years! The Caritas Centennial Scholarship Gala will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 in the Pat Sullivan Center at University of St. Francis at 6 p.m. as part of a yearlong series of events in celebration of USF’s Centennial.  

Caritas is one of Joliet’s longest-running black-tie events, raising more than $5 million for scholarships from the generosity of USF’s alumni and friends.

The Caritas Centennial Scholarship Gala will return to the Pat Sullivan Center for this one night only. Caritas Centennial chairs Gloria & Edward Dollinger and Diane & Bill Habiger, along with hosts Arvid & Anne Johnson, look forward to welcoming you to campus for a wonderful evening of gourmet dining, dancing and fun – all for a great cause.
