30th Anniversary Crozier Gala
Saturday, April 14, 2018
Themed "Pearls of Grace," the 30th Anniversary Crozier Gala was held April 14, 2018, at the Arizona Biltmore to benefit the Foundation’s Crozier Catholic School Scholarship Program, which awards scholarships to children of diocesan employees.
“We are here to build scholarship resources for students whose parents work as Catholic school teachers, administrators and support staff in the Diocese of Phoenix,” said Catholic Community Foundation CEO Deacon James Carabajal.
The event featured performances by the Katzin Crozier Honor Choir and celebrity manicurist and singer Deborah Lippmann.
Mary Lou and John Campo III were honored with the Bishop’s Crozier Award for Lifetime Leadership and Service for their five decades of service and contributions to various Catholic organizations.
The couple has volunteered legal services to Catholic Charities, assisted in the purchase of the property where Mt. Claret is now located, provided the founding gift to establish the “Prepare Him Room” capital campaign at the All Saints Catholic Newman Center and helped to build Crosier Village.
John Campo has been a Knight of Malta since 1996 and served on the board of the Catholic Community Foundation for six years while Mary Lou Campo has donated time to the Christ Child Society of Phoenix.
NFL Hall of Famer Kurt Warner and Emmy Award-winning television personality Carey Peña served as emcees.
Pat and Bob Bondurant and Molly and Bob Stockley served as the co-chairs of the event.
