Join us for our Annual Scholarship Gala on September 28 at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park. For more than 130 years, Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart has believed that every girl in Chicago has the right and responsibility to dream, pursue her passions, and positively impact her own life and the lives of others. As our signature fundraising event, the Annual Scholarships Gala plays a vital role in ensuring all girls in Chicago have access to a transformative, world-class education.

This year, we have a special opportunity to honor Big Shoulders as our 2019 Blessed Pauline Awardee. The Blessed Pauline award is given annually to person(s) who, in leadership and commitment to education in all its forms, exemplifies the qualities and virtues of our foundress, Blessed Pauline.
