By the Bay Gala

April 6, 2024 | Tampa Marriott Water Street

Please join us for this year's By the Bay gala on April 6, 2024 at the Tampa Marriott Water Street. The event, featuring an exciting live and silent auction, is an evening of camaraderie in support of the students and programs of the Academy of the Holy Names. Together, let us carry forward the mission of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, ensuring their legacy of educating the youth of Tampa.

Prior to 2024, the annual gala has raised more than $4.3 million to support students through campus resources, technology, mission and ministry programming, and tuition assistance across all grade levels.
