Grand Tour of Nations is a party for parents, grandparents, alumni and friends to come together and support Saint John’s Prep. Proceeds from Grand Tour provide vital funding for student scholarships and programs. This fundraiser will be held on April 29, 2023 at the Gorecki Center on the campus of the College of Saint Benedict. We are excited to host a spectacular event with a delicious dinner, silent auction, live auction and giving moment. We hope you will join us on this spectacular evening to support our school and students!

This year our gala theme is the beautiful country of France! Our guests will enjoy French food, music and décor!

Thanks to your participation and generosity at the 2022 event, Grand Tour raised over $275,000 for student programs and scholarships! We hope to surpass that amount in 2023!

If you would like to be a part of the 2023 event’s success, contact Jill Pauly, Director of Communications and Events via email or Sara Gabrielson, Annual Giving Manager, at
