Cristo Rey Tampa Salesian High School & Corporate Work Study Program is excited to host its first annual event, the Reys of Hope – An Evening of Firsts.

Philanthropist T.J. Couch and The Honorable Victor Crist are the Co-chairs for the event. “They bring proven leadership and their love for the community to Cristo Rey Tampa,” shared Development Director, Terri Parnell-Longphee.

While Cristo Rey Tampa is the focus of the event, the shining stars of the evening are our students. As you meet our students at the event, their unique talents will be displayed, including the entertainment.

All proceeds from the Reys of Hope – An Evening of Firsts will go towards the needs of a growing school. As Cristo Rey Tampa continues to serve the needs of students with limited economic resources, the physical plant and curriculum must expand to address the needs of the students. This event will help fund classroom furniture for three new classrooms, a bus to transport students to school and work, enhancements to the science curriculum, and the purchase of athletic equipment and uniforms.

Join us for Reys of Hope – An Evening of Firsts  a star-studded reception, silent and live auctions, and drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
