Wheeling Jesuit University's Gaudiosa set for 2017


Planning for Wheeling Jesuit University's Gaudiosa -- or joyous feast -- is underway.

The event is a fundraiser and is scheduled for April 29 at the McDonough Center on campus.

There are cocktails, dinner and entertainment.

Ninety-five percent of Wheeling Jesuit's student attend by scholarship, and this event helps those students attend a Jesuit school.

“Over the four years, we have raised just over $500,000, and it all supports student scholarships,” said Noah Mull, director of advancement at WJU. “The event has alumni, friends and the community celebrating student success and student scholarships.”

Entertainment is provided by the students. The event is nearly sold out and WTOV9 is a proud sponsor.
