¡Viva Cristo Rey!
Paul and Carol Beck, Michael Dillard and Paula Lopez, Aileen and Andy McCormick, Bob and Lynn Murphy, Michele Holbrooke, Michele Dearborn, Lexa Borreca, Richard Sanborn, Christina Scuseria, Ignacio Scuseria, Rosalba Sanborn, Courtney Brooks, Austin Brooks, and Ana Scuseria celebrated at the Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston gala. More than 600 supporters gathered at the Hilton Americas for a silent auction, live auction, and dancing, and raised $2.5 million for the Catholic high school. ¡Viva Cristo Rey! was chaired by Aileen and Andy McCormick and honored Paula Lopez and Michael Dillard. Funds from the evening will provide scholarships for nearly 450 students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to help them attend Cristo Rey Jesuit and prepare for college. In addition to scholarship grants, students earn half of the cost of their education through the school’s corporate work-study program that places students in entry-level positions at corporations around Houston.
