Grand Tour of Nations
April 30, 2022

Save the date for Grand Tour of Nations on April 30, 2022! This is our biggest fundraising event of the year and we need your support to make it a success. Proceeds from Grand Tour provide vital funding for student scholarships and programs.

The event in 2022 will be at the Gorecki Center on the College of Saint Benedict. We are excited to return to an in-person event completed 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!

Despite not being able to come together in person, thanks to your participation and generosity at the 2021 event, Grand Tour raised over $225,000 for student programs and scholarships.

If you would like to be a part of the 2022 event’s success, contact Aaron Miller, Vice President of Advancement at 320-363-2098 or via email amiller001@sjprep.net
